These are just two of the many responses I received from people who read First Things' response to my letter in their March issue.
These two friends are not anonymous to me, but I refrain from using their names because of their high profile in the Catholic world and since I did not ask permission to quote them.
1) What a dumb reply FT gave your letter—and the others. Still, I suspect in their secret offices, they learned a lesson here . . .
2) RE: First Things. Good response from you. First Things has been my favorite magazine. It bugs me that people who are often so perceptive can at other times be so blatantly blind. It especially bothers me because it would have been so easy to settle the matter.
