Mary Ann Glendon, Cultural Warrior

Catholics — By on March 10, 2004 at 11:55 pm

Mary Ann Glendon, a Harvard law professor and member of the President’s Bioethics Council, has been chosen by Pope John Paul to lead the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences making her the highest-ranking female adviser in the Catholic Church.
Glendon, who specializes in comparative constitutional law in America and Europe, international human rights, and bioethics, is a respected antiabortion scholar and has become a leading opponent of gay marriage. Even her colleague Alan Dershowitz speaks highly of her. “If a woman could be made pope, she’d be my candidate,” Dershowitz said. “She brings to bear all the best of religion and secular thinking. Whenever I get upset about religion, which happens from time to time, I think about Mary Ann Glendon and I remember the virtues of a religious perspective.”
So why is this noteworthy? For two reasons: 1) Because conservative Christians should always be encouraged when one of our own gains such a position of influence and 2) because it will tick off all the right people — critics of the Bioethics Council, cultural elites, the faculty of Harvard, and liberal Catholics from Massachusetts. What more could you ask for?
This is one of those times that I wish we evangelicals had a Vatican of our own.

    Actually, nobody really cares what the Vatican does internally. It’s when they insist that everyone else has to live their way that we get upset. I, for one, am much more concerned about having her on the Bioethics Council – which, arguably (though to little degree in practice), influences policy for American citizens – than on some Catholic advisory group. The cure for Catholic reactionism is simple – ignore it. It’s when reactionaries start writing their personal revulsions into law that it becomes a problem.
    The Vatican has a lot of these advisory councils – a better-known one is the science council, which has done good work in bringing the church into modern times. (They provided the background for the Pope’s conclusion that Galileo was right, a mere 360 years late.) If they stack their own councils with like-thinkers, as the Bioethics Council has done, they’ll only get the advice they approve of and remain as irrelevant as ever. But that’s their choice. It only affects us when they step outside their bounds. (And why the faculty of Harvard should care, I can’t imagine.)
