For Catholics left and right of center?

Twin churches
Santa Maria dei Miracoli & Santa Maria in Montesanto, Rome

Sotto Voce at Clerical Whispers posts a contributed essay including a story about a Jewish man who was shipwrecked on a desert island. When he was finally found, his rescuers were amazed to see that the man had built not one but two synagogues out of palm trees. "Why?" they asked the man. "Well, this is the synagogue I go to," he explained, gesturing to one of them. "And this is the synagogue I don't go to."

The essayist goes on to suggest that Catholics are very much in this mold. The piece is of mixed quality but makes some interesting points. Just the story about the two synagogues, however, is enough to give us much to think about.
