John Carr Now At America

America is pleased to announced the naming of John Carr as our new Washington Correspondent. Mr. Carr, whose first column will appear in the March 11 issue, will offer regular analysis and commentary, in print and online, on key issues and events in the nation’s capital. His print column will be called “Washington Front,” a name that will be familiar to America’s long-time readers. “Washington Front” appeared in the magazine for more than 25 years; its various authors included the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Mary McGrory. John Carr has spent decades at the intersection of faith and public life. For more than twenty years, he served as Director of the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ Department on Justice, Peace and Human Development, where he assisted the bishops in sharing and applying Catholic social teaching on a broad range of national and international issues.  Carr retired from the U.S.C.C.B. last year to accept a residential fellowship on religion and politics at Harvard University and to develop new ways to encourage greater knowledge and dialogue on Catholic social thought and educate lay men and women for leadership in public life.

John Carr was "quietly" fired from the USCCB because his politics did not match the Faith. America has hired an extreme liberal Catholic in John Carr to replace the ousted liberal political writer Sean Winters. The revamped America is slicker and more professional, however looks to be headed to the far left and continue to remain out of step with American Catholicism.

The bishops are out of step with American Catholicism.
