Would it surprise you to learn that the person who wrote this letter in late 2008 …

It is a sad commentary that the Roman Catholic Church in the United States now adds clergy to professions like medicine and engineering that create a brain drain from countries so in need of their own educated classes.

This so-called necessity is all in the name of a mistaken adherence to an all-male celibate priesthood in my church.

… also wrote this letter in early 2012?:

Now that 100 influential Christian social conservatives have chosen Rick Santorum as their GOP candidate, let us look back in history. The country was concerned about a Catholic president when John F. Kennedy was running for that office. He was never a menace. Mr. Santorum is. He gives the rest of us Catholics a bad name with his self-righteous, sanctimonious extremism.
