Allen probably has to feed his family, pay his mortgate and car note, etc.

After all his years at the National Schismatic Reporter, he is probably very well paid, and there's no other Catholic paper or magazine of which I am aware that could afford to pay him a major columnist's salary.

With that said, at some point a fellow just has to say "No." Everybody has a point beyond which they will not go -- and given the poisonous anti-Catholic rhetoric that NCR puts out on a regular basis, if I were in his shoes I would have reached that point a long time ago.

It is easier to say that before you are already in the soup, though. Many years ago, when I was unemployed, I was offered a job and the money was very good, but I asked the advice of an older lawyer that I respected very much, and he said NOT to take the job -- although he said "I can't tell you why - but don't take it." I didn't, and I was glad afterwards. And I won't tell you why either. :-)

I don't know what to say about John Allen. He may see himself as a missionary for the truth.

Oremus.
