George Weigel falls into Antonio Spadaro’s trap

George Weigel is no intellectual match for Antonio Spadaro S.J.

As I predicted from the outset, Fr. Spadaro’s article was a very carefully crafted essay, with no “mistakes”. Fr. Spadaro knew exactly what he was doing. 

He knows how deeply Americanism runs in the DNA of the Catholic Church in America.  Fr. Spadaro only threw the bone and the dogs come running. More will come. 

George Weigel, in a neo-con, Americanist counter-attack against Fr. Spadaro ends up flailing at air. Weigel, a liberal (paradoxically like Spadaro) reveals his deeply set Americanist mind set. 

Readers should be aware that Weigel, a hard-core neo-con war-monger, excoriated Pope John Paull II for the now sainted Pope’s warning against the 1st Iraq War. Weigel is part of the neo-con Beltway establishment connected to jet-setting, upper-tax bracket figures, who has amassed a small fortune on the licensing of his biography of the late, Polish Pope. 

Weigel recently tried to twist the staunchly anti-liberal and anti-Americanist Leo XIII into a liberal like himself. 

Well, a huge victory for Fr. Spadaro.
