The problem of political priests

Gabriel Sanchez has a very interesting—provocative, even—post at Opus Publicum about celebrity priests. He discusses primarily the example of Fr. Robert Sirico, the president of the Acton Institute and a free-market cheerleader, but he also mentions Bishop Robert Barron. You ought to read the whole thing at Opus Publicum. For our part, we think Sanchez’s point deserves some serious reflection by the laity.
