The value of Catholic centerism

A vigorous, life-giving Catholicism never associates itself with either left-wing or right-wing ideology. The neo-conservatives made the fundamental error of doing just that with the right-wing. The Gospel is too subversive to ever be so closely aligned with human political ideologies of any stripe. The result of this misreading of the Gospel is a misreading of events and of the signs of the times.
Quite so Mr. Sobrino, quite so. There's a lot to like about markets, but they are not the right tool for every job, any more than a power drill is. Also agreed - the relatively small importance of the Curia. I would add, perhaps Rome and the papacy is too important in the minds of many, though perhaps not.
