If John Allen is 1) that great a Catholic writer, and 2) did not agree with the editorial stance of NCR, he would not still be writing for them after all these years. I think he is very comfortable where he is at and is in agreement with the worldview of NCR. Therefore I am not a fan. I feel he shares their agenda and lends NCR credibility they would not otherwise still maintain.

Well, I'll admit I'm puzzled about that myself. I don't know why Allen tolerates NCR, or why NCR tolerates Allen.
I just know that from years of reading, I trust Allen second only to Phil Lawler.
Lawler-- now there's my guy. There's nobody I respect more. He is at the top of my go-to list to figure out what's really going on.
