It is a sign of our times, wrote Tom Bethell recently, that Patrick J. Buchanan was blamed for launching a culture war by noticing that we were under attack. Similarly, Michael Voris has been and will be blamed for launching an insensitive war on gays by noticing that Catholic faith and morals are under attack from a culture of rampant indulgence towards gay activists. The more's the irony, because the stance Voris takes toward gays is actually as profoundly compassionate as it is faithful to Catholic faith and morals. But what will provoke hatred of Voris more than anything else on this score is his simple statement of the obvious, his naming of places, churches, bishops, events -- in short, the simple statement of facts. "How could he be so rude as to state facts?!"
