Catholic Culture Wars

John Casey has a terrific piece in Open Democracy about the current struggle within the Catholic community between "traditionalists" [those who support the reforms of the sixteenth-century Council of Trent] and the "modernists" who support the reforms instituted half a century ago by the Second Vatican Council.

It is well worth a read, even if you are not a Catholic because it reflects so much of what is going on in our broader culture. Check it out here.
