White House Appoints Father Reese To Religious Freedom Commission - Fox To The Hen House

Apparently I missed this two weeks ago, but the White House appointed to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom Father Thomas Reese, the Jesuit who's been at Georgetown ever since Pope Benedict XVI fired him from America magazine (ht - NotAtAll Catholic Reporter).  Follow the link on Reese's name to see just why the White House would think that Reese would represent them well.  He may well have not been their first choice, but Father Robert Drinan has already passed and gone to his eternal reward (whatever that might be).

One might wonder if Reese obtained permission from his Jesuit superiors to accept this position from the Messiah Most Miserable.  Knowing the sorry spiritual condition of the Jesuits, though, his superiors probably approved heartily (assuming he bothered to ask).

I anticipate that Reese will do a stellar job selling the Catholic Church down the river, just like Ken Hackett did at the Vatican.

  1. Of course, this is completely disgusting, but I am not surprised. Reese should have been excommunicated a long time ago. His replacement at America Magazine, however, is just as bad. And somehow, some of the work of Father James Martin is promoted by orthodox Catholics. Even Brandon Vogt has frequently promoted his books and I even saw a book of his on sale at the bookstore of the National Shrine in DC. Some people truly need to be more discerning!
