The despicable James Carroll is also a dishonest (see his Constantine's Sword) militantly anti-Catholic secular ex-priest who still has not grown up and is still in rebellion against his quite respectable (military intelligence) father who is now long dead. It is all in Carroll's autobiography.
It doesn't matter anyway what his leanings are as he will soon be out a job too! Like his buddy Howard (the big mouth of Vermont)Dean says....the fish starts to stink at the head first! He is the head of a stinking fishwrapper of a newspaper!!
