Blogger extraordinaire Rocco Palmo has a link to an article in the Guardian about the succession at the cathedra in Westminster, the primatial see of England. The article has a historical reference so wrong it is comical: "Catholic enthusiasts - whom some might call ’conservatives’, though these labels never quite tell the whole story - are praying for another kulturkampf." Of course, the kulturkampf was Bismark’s cultural and political attack on the Church. It is the last thing for which a Catholic, conservative or otherwise, would pray.
Palmo’s article also mentions the upcoming succession in New York City. Any guesses who might be the next archbishop of Gotham?
