Silk on Chaput

As always, Mark Silk has some highly intelligent remarks about Archbishop Chaput's recent comments about the coverage of religion in the media. He is spot-on about how the media, appropriately, considers hypocrisy an aggravating factor as opposed to a mitigating one, in its coverage of religion. The only other thing about Chaput's address that jumped out at me was the sheer defensiveness of his speech. Coming on the heels of the media's coverage of Pope Benedict's successful trip to the UK, almost all of it favorable, that defensiveness seemed more than a little odd.
