For the record I have consistently and conscientiously not resonated with
Sarah Palin’s politics, rhetoric, or gun-toting lifestyle.
Last weekend ata Tea Party event in Indianola, Iowa, however, Sarah Palin made three observations that
go to the heart of our contemporary Roman Catholic leadership problem….from Rome to NewYork.
First of all she stressed that the United States is now governed by a permanent political class, drawn from both parties, that is cut off from the concerns of regular people. Hmmm I thought….just like our bishops.
Secondly Ms Palin said both major political parties have allied themselves with big business to their own advantage in an arrangement of “corporate crony capitalism.”
Thirdly, and here especially her observations reflect the current Church scenario. Palin stressed that the real political divide in the United States is no longer between friends and foes of Big Government, but between friends and foes of vast, remote, unaccountable institutions (both public and private).
YES INDEED ………….Vast, remote, and unaccountable institutions…………..
They listen best to their own voices.
