Whenever Owen White shows up in my comboxes things get interesting; your assumptions are about to get challenged, your presuppositions questioned. You are going to have to think.
Owen has been commenting here for a couple of years or so, and all the while I have been trying to figure him out, reading his comments and posts, and exchanging emails. Though we have never met offline, I consider him a pal, and I believe he thinks I am the only distributist who is radical enough to meet the Owen Standard of radicalness, who is not bourgeois beyond redemption.
Now, I am pleased to report, he has begun to tell the story, on his blog, of his intellectual and spiritual journey to the Catholic Church.
I am pretty sure this is not going to be a typical conversion story.
And did I mention that he is a very fine writer? Especially when the subject is his life or his family.
