Here is a good letter to the editor to the local paper where former baseball commissioner Fay Vincent lived in response to their three days of one-sided coverage. Especially interesting I found was the following quote from Fr. Reese.
Only a few people in this century, like Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Archbishop Oscar Romero and Nelson Mandela have shown that it is possible to love one’s opponents while struggling for truth against injustice.
Notably absent is Pope John Paul II from this list and many others of the literally thousands of Catholics who were martyred during the last century. No mention of Father Maximilian Kolbe or St. Edith Stein who both in their last days were beacons of Christ in showing love and struggling against evil.
The positive thing about Fay Vincent’s resignation and his decline of a honor from a Catholic School is that he really shouldn’t get one in the first place. Especially since he was all for pro-abortion Hillary Clinton speaking at a Catholic School and is also for women’s ordination. Funny I don’t remember that while he was baseball commissioner that he fought for having women’s players? Where is the equality that they are prevented from the holy sacrifice of the bunt or a sacrifice fly?
