Christopher of Against the Grain
has published a more lengthy treatment
of John Courtney Murray's thought, focused on its present-day utilization in defending the pro-choice position (see my own 'Abortion and the Common Good'
from last week), the newest feature on his fantastic resources/blog site 'The Church and the Liberal Tradition.'
Christopher expands upon some of the observations I noted, and puts Murray's thought into its broader legal context. Reading this short article should leave no question that Murray, whatever the shortcomings of his own thought, has been unkindly betrayed by his own legacy.
