Mr. Clarke asks if American Catholics will shout at each other instead of dialoguing? Of course they will and have been doing so,just like other Americans. We Catholics are just as unchristian as our fellow citizens. Why shouldn't we be? The Church has not met the deep spiritual needs of its people.  The deep understanding of Jesus' message is lost to the laity, for the most part, because it is lost to the hierarchy for the most part, as well. You reap what you sow.
