How Could I Resist?

Here's a discussion of the effect (or lack thereof) of Ex Corde Ecclesiae. It's good in its own right, but there was no resisting "Preferential Option for the Poor Ignoramuses."

I'm not sure I fully buy the premise and conclusion. They are surely correct in instances; but we have also seen Catholic institutions moderate, improve markedly or turn around altogether since the promulgation of ECE; there've also been a flurry of new and worthy colleges founded. Maybe our key institutions haven't been affected: maybe that's his point.
