The Once and Future Pope: How an Imaginary 3rd Vatican Council Report Sparked Public Debate
Tears were welling up in my eyes as I finished reading the story. One of my old friends said he almost fell out of his breakfast nook from shock. Posts about the story have 10k+ shares on Facebook. People everywhere are either “liking” it or condemning it as an affront to their faith. So what generated this public outpouring? I’m referring to an article about the 3rd Vatican Council, which has Pope Francis really stirring things up with an earth-shattering pronouncement.
That’s the opening to my latest piece, which was just published at the new Public Seminar website, so go check it out. Starting this year (2014) I will be a regular contributor to this new project launched out of the NSSR at The New School. So look forward to more of my work appearing there as well.
Until next time…
