A nuanced kick down the middle

Thank you for running Amy Welborn’s perspective on Harrison Butker’s speech in the May 31 issue. It captured many of my own thoughts about a speech that meant well but also was flawed. It’s good to read her nuanced approach in Angelus, especially when there’s so much pressure for everyone to line up on our tribal sides and shout at each other.
