AG Barr Surprises, Pleasantly!

I've been skeptical of AG Barr, principally for his actions in the Ruby Ridge matter, where he defended actions by the FBI which were, frankly, indefensible.  But that does not diminish the sagacity of what he said at Notre Dame last week.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Friday expressed his disdain for the spread of secularism in the U.S., blaming progressives  and the decline of religion for a plethora of problems plaguing the nation, including drugs, violence, and mental illness during a speech at Notre Dame Law School.  “Among the militant-secularists are many so-called progressives. But where is the progress?,” Barr asked rhetorically. “The fact is that no secular creed has emerged capable of performing the role of religion,” he added...
Almost as though Patrick Deneen wrote the speech for him--or maybe Timothy Gordon, eh??  Or more likely, Aquinas, Aristotle, Augustine, John Paul II, or maybe  Edmund Burke.

Anyhow, the Usual Suspects belched forth the Usual Lies:  Hitler, Prison Camps, Free Speech, Tyrants, Conspiracy Theory, State Religion, get the picture.  Only those wearing a crucifix will escape The Doom of Religion!! 

(Bp. Seitz has not yet issued a screed identifying Barr as a Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayciss.  But he will.)
