Sincere Moderate

Now there really is no real reason for me to find this annoying. It's a short article from a sincere moderate annoyed about the shallowness of David O'Reilly's "warrior-bishop" article in the Inquirer. He wants to know Is Chaput too Catholic for the Inky? (People who call Philadelphia "Philly" also call the Inquirer "the Inky".) It's a very perceptive look at the article, calling O'Reilly's work an "all politics all the time profile." But isn't the title of the article a little naive? Isn't the answer to the question obvious? Of course he's too Catholic. Any Catholic is too Catholic. For the Inquirer, like the New York Times, the only good Catholic is a bad Catholic.
