This article is well worth reading for those seeking to understand how the support of Christian groups empowered the administration in going to war in Iraq. The author deals with the small Catholic group under the leadership of once Lutheran, Richard Neuhaus. Neuhaus thought, early on, that Christian critique of the march to war was disappointing and an embarrassment. As we see here, those terms better apply to Neuhaus' inability to admit the error of his support for the administration. Notice, in particular, Weigel's "charism of discernment." It is an embarrassment indeed to attribute this administration's discernment regarding the war to the Spirit of God.
