The Moral Minority And The Savior

Novak, Michael
March 1981
National Review;3/6/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 4, p228
The article comments on the social revolution of the American Left during the antiwar movement in El Salvador. El Salvador's Catholic Church supports revolutionaries and opposes the government as claimed by leftists. The link between geopolitical considerations and the revolution was asserted by Thomas E. Quigley, the lay expert on Latin America of the National Catholic Conference. The belief of the Left regarding the effect of social revolutions in Central America is revealed. Many of the Catholic clergy and active laity do not support the revolution which shows that the Catholic Church of El Salvador is divided.
