The article also contains these sentences:
"I often hear laments that the spirit of Vatican II is dead in the church. Is it not ironic that not a bishop but the President of the United States should today be the most effective spokesperson for that spirit?"I myself know almost nothing about Vatican II, but it's possible that what is dead is not the "spirit of Vatican II", but a particular interpretation of that spirit.
But if it is true that a non-Catholic supporter of abortion, partial-birth abortion, and Embryonic Stem-Cell Research, who just declared June to be "National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Month" is the most effective spokesperson for the "spirit of Vatican II", its death is certainly nothing to mourn.
Diogenes and Father Z have weighed in on this.
