Charlie Camosy has an op-ed at the Washington Post's "On Faith" section that expresses a hope I share - that the Democrats will become more pro-life as they confront an increasingly libertarian Republican Party - although I am less confident than Camosy that I will live to see the day. Nonetheless, he hits on the key fact of our political life today, that the two most fertile intellectual movements in politics, libertarianism and Catholic social teaching, are evenly divided between the two parties at the moment and that something will have to give.
