Tim for Pope

Well, E.J. Dionne doesn't actually come right out and say it; but he seems to be leaning in that direction:

I am inclined, with Radcliffe, to believe we should celebrate rather than mourn our intellectual tensions between Communion and Kingdom, between liberty on the one side and community and equality on the other.

Judge for yourself here.

Robert P. Imbelli, a long-time Commonweal contributor, is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York. A book of essays in his honor, The Center Is Jesus Christ Himself, edited by Andrew Meszaros, was published this year by The Catholic University of America Press.
