On "Benedict's ongoing battle against secularism"

I'm not a fan of the National Catholic Reporter, but that newpaper certainly has a gem of a reporter in John Allen.

Thanks to Michael P. for calling attention to Mr. Allen's characteristically insightful article on Pope Benedict's ongoing battle against ideological secularism.  Allen rightly notes the Holy Father's crucial distinction between a properly secular sphere ('healthy secularism") and secularism as an ideology.

So here's the chance I've been hoping for to say to Michael:  Amen, brother!  (Amen to Brother Allen, too.)

For some thoughts of my own prompted by the Pope's distinction:
