The Rule of the Planners

The Inquirer says that Archbishop Chaput is a “warrior-bishop.” more reasonably says "he has been both energetic and effective in giving a public voice to Church teaching on contentious issues."

If the Conference for Pastoral Planning and Council Development had been around when James Hitchcock was writing The Decline and Fall of Radical Catholicism and Msgr. Kelly was writing The Battle for the American Church, it would have gotten a chapter in each book. Yet here we are in Philadelphia, Archbishop Chaput is our bishop and planners from the conference close schools, give every impression that they're going to be reorganizing the parishes next and, in general, are turning the diocese upside down.
