Darryl Hart on American Roman Catholicism

Darryl Hart at “Old Life” provides some quotations regarding the uniquely American experience of Roman Catholicism and how it hasn’t really taken political root (link). I would add that Roman Catholicism does tend to exhibit a degree of syncretism. Thus, in its American embodiment it tends to be rather Protestant, but it has other flavors in other countries. For example, in Brazil, the Marxist influence is hard to deny (and is the topic of a significant amount of frustration amongst more traditional folks there).
