Name that Class
George Marlin at The Catholic Thing has a good article about the class that the school-closers don't like: The Decline of Working-Class Catholic Families. It would be great if the Church could give these families some support. One thing that would be part of that support would be respect. Mr. Marlin quotes Charles Murray: “The people who are trying to do the right thing [must] get the reinforcement they need – not in the form of government assistance – but in validation of the values and standards they continue to uphold.” The planners for the archdiocese, on the other hand, want to close their schools and send them social workers.
