[quote=Karl Keating]You still mischaracterize the “New Oxford Review.”
Yes, it opposes the Iraq War, citing John Paul II and Benedict XVI among those who share that position. Many orthodox Catholics oppose that war.
And, yes, the “New Oxford Review” has been critical of President Bush, but it has not printed anything that can be described as “hatred.”
The letters column in the magazine runs letters that sometimes are highly critical of the magazine’s articles or editorials–and the editor replies to those letters pointedly, but he does not “viciously attack” them.
If you just don’t like the positions taken by the magazine, that’s fine, but you should describe even things you oppose with appropriate language.
I suggest people read the magazine and judge for themselves. Like I said once I get past the letters and editorial views I think it is a good magazine.(great article recently on the ultra liberal Seminary in S.F.) Pehaps the term “viciously” is over the top but then i think the way they criticized Deal Hudson and others was over the top also.
I will also admit to being somewhat intimidated by having come to your attention!http://forums.catholic.com/images/icons/icon11.gif
