Bad Boy

James Green is an Irishman who writes from England. His new "All the World's a Pub" is probably the world's only anthology of poetry about beer. He'll soon publish a mystery drama, "Bad Catholics." I like his definition of a bad Catholic: "A bad Catholic is, by definition, a good Catholic. Catholics who admit fully to their faults, who know they aren't making a very good fist of being as 'holy' as they should be, are reflective, thoughtful Catholics. Truly bad Catholics are those who sure they are doing the right thing, and kick the crap out of others whom they regard as less worthy than they are."
