My friend Matt often laments that there's not a political party he can fit into as a Catholic. He may be comforted by the fact that a new book out from Orbis Books emphasizes this exact point. Clark E. Cochran and David Carroll Cochran itemize the distinctly Catholic position on all the major political points in their new book, quite ably I might add, and they provide a list of useful web links at the end of each chapter, some of which will likely make it onto our blog roll.
Just remember, Matt, Peter Maurin had trouble fitting into the American political ideal of melting towards the middle. Give thanks for the unique Catholic political voice in America, I say.
