Fr. Thomas Reese, S.J., A Liberal Commentator, Has Described Archbishop Kurtz As A “Smiling Conservative”

In Louisville—and before that, as bishop of Knoxville—Archbishop Kurtz has demonstrated strong conservative values, and has been a staunch defender of Vatican directives on doctrine and liturgy. Fr. Thomas Reese, a liberal commentator who has frequently disagreed with Vatican politics, 
has described Archbishop Joseph Kurtz as a “smiling conservative” in the vein of New York’s Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan, who is “very gracious but still holds the same positions” as Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
who has boldly challenged Catholic politicians who dissent from Church teachings on abortion.
