Rangeboy, I really enjoyed this essay both as a personal essay and as an interesting bit of history. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks for this, doubly so for the name of Once a Catholic, a book I remember my mother (herself now long gone) enjoying back when I was a kid. I was interested in it solely because George Carlin was one of the interviewees (assuming it's the same book). I still see the latest issue of National Catholic Reporter whenever we visit my aunt and it's nice to know the backstory.

The author's father sounds like a flawed, but generally correct, guy.

Despite my own Catholic faith, upbringing, and (mostly-)Catholic education, I often forget that there is a lively press alongside my church. I need to spend more time reading about my own culture!

Boston College, my alma mater, publishes an occasional paper called "C21 Resources." It is a best of collection of articles chosen from a number of major American, Catholic outlets around a different topic each time. They're all available online at that link, and are quite good.
