The Mice That Roared

Kirk, Russell
December 1976
National Review;12/10/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 47, p1348
The article criticizes the naive liberalism of the delegates to the U.S. Bishops Conference on Liberty and Justice for All in Detroit, Michigan from October 20-23, 1976. This liberalism was expressed by the majority of the delegates who endorsed resolutions instructing the bishops to arrange promptly for ordination of women, marriage of the clergy and a fair deal of for homosexuals. A number of these delegates regarded the Catholic Church as a potentially useful auxiliary of the extreme left-wing of the Democratic Party.
