I know Denver's archbishop, Charles Chaput, reasonably well -- well enough to expect that when he delivers a thoughtful address on how the media covers religion, he's going to provoke a strong response. Fair enough.
Still, it was somewhat astonishing to read a Beliefnet commentator, Mark Silk, deploying the phrase "it's pretty white of Chaput" in a column objecting to the archbishop's remarks. Not only because it's bad form, but also because the archbishop is part Native American (Potawatomi, I believe).
Then again, maybe you have to be a professor and have gone to Harvard to write this way.
