That word, ‘marginalized’ …

December 21, 2015 § 10 Comments

I keep reading assertions to the effect that the Church has to be more welcoming to the ‘marginalized’.

By ‘marginalized,’ those making the assertion seem to mean various kinds of people with the full weight of our culture and political authority behind them.

By ‘welcoming the marginalized’, those making the assertion seem to mean crushing any questioning of the comprehensive march through institutions by the culturally and politically powerful beneath the bootheel of formal and informal sanction.
