Good Catholic, Bad Catholic

I've written about this sort of thing before, about how Barack Obama's actions regarding various Catholic matters has been designed, all along, to show that there are the Right Sort of Catholics (pro-abortion ones, mainly, especially pro-abortion Democrats) and the Wrong Sort (pro-life ones, especially the ones who say you can't be Catholic and pro-abortion).

Now Time has gotten into the debate:
The leaders of the Roman Catholic Church traditionally couch even the harshest disagreements in decorous, ecclesiastical language. But it didn't take a decoder ring to figure out what Rome-based Archbishop Raymond Burke meant in a late-September address when he charged Boston Cardinal Seán O'Malley with being under the influence of Satan, "the father of lies."

Wow, "holistic". I am ceaselessly amazed at the way people use words when it comes to abortion. It's so much like the newsspeak in 1984.
