Who are the reactionaries?

All week, I've been receiving a stream of downer emails from the National Catholic Reporter. The latest says: "this Sunday...many of us will feel depressed.... Many of us will feel like a battle has been lost." And why? Because the new translation is rooted in "a clerical, imperial ideology." The paper hastens to add: "If we become bitter and arrested in anger, then we will be losers."
