In a move that was a surprise to no one, the notoriously liberal and anti-Catholic National Catholic Reporter gave a platform to one of the most one-sided attacks on Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese of the Military Services.
The author, Colman McCarthy, regularly writes a column for NCR.
His latest is an attack not only on Archbishop Broglio, but on every Catholic Chaplain, every Catholic that is serving, and every Catholic who has ever served his or her country. McCarthy even questions the Church's teaching on the right to self-defense.
Here is but a snippet of the article entitled The check is definitely not in the mail;
That 25 percent of the nation’s 1.4 million active-duty soldiers are Catholics who allowed themselves to be trained to solve the nation’s conflicts with bullets, bombs and belligerence strikes me as a raw indictment of the church’s leadership. No one has ever rationally explained to me how modern popes routinely condemn war -- “No more war! No more war!” cried Pope Paul VI in 1965 at the United Nations -- yet never warn Catholics it is sinful to be warriors in the way it is sinful to engage in artificial birth control or have abortions.
McCarthy is so ignorant of the military, he refers to all members of the US Armed Forces as 'soldiers'. Members of the US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Coast Guard and the US Air Force just might take exception to that.
May Servant of God Father Vincent Capodanno, Lt. USN Chaplain Corps, Congressional Medal of Honor, pray for McCarthy and the rest of the lost souls at the National Catholic Distorter.
