Richard John Neuhaus died yesterday

Father Neuhaus, a Roman Catholic convert from the Lutheran Church died on January 8th of complications from his cancer treatments. Neuhaus was best known as a formative voice for the religious right in the United States.

From the obituary on the National Catholic Reporter’s website:

From the early 1970s forward, Neuhaus was a key architect of two alliances with profound consequences for American politics, both of which overcame histories of mutual antagonism: one between conservative Catholics and Protestant Evangelicals, and the other between free market neo-conservatives and “faith and values” social conservatives.
