Philly Archbishop, 6 Weeks into Trial: Pay More Attention to Gosnell!

Exhibit Z for why the Catholic Church is behind the times: On the eve of closing arguments in the Kermit Gosnell trial, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput declared in his weekly column Friday that we should all be paying more attention to the case. Citing similar pieces from almost three weeks ago by Kirsten Powers and Conor Friedersdorf, Chaput urges us all to stop what we’re doing and learn more about Gosnell, dammit! “People need to know about an evil before they can do anything about it,” he writes. Seems like someone else was ignoring it too–the case began 6 weeks ago, Archbishop!
