As Donald noted yesterday, it’s been a year since we started here at The American Catholic. I know we’ve all been pleased both at the quality of the writing from the team as a whole, and also from the interest from our readers.

    Please write more multi-themed posts just like “Kudos to Chris Smith” aka “How Morning Minion is a Thomas More-Hating S.O.B. (if only More was a Pro-Abort politico, he might’ve been proclaimed a ‘Catholic Saint’ even by the infallible M.M.)” aka “The Many Ways Dorothy Day is (Mis-)Interpreted” aka “What is Anarchy?” aka “Oscar Romero: Heretic or Hero?” aka “Tito Taco: Anti-Catholic Fiction or Catholic Fact?” aka “Was Tolkien Anarchist?”…
