Catholics and Jews, round upteen and one

I’m OK you’re OK as theology: Catholics reject evangelization of Jews. According to the journalist at the Boston Glob, who plainly has some axes to grind, “the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops declared unequivocally that the biblical covenant between Jews and God is valid and therefore Jews do not need to be saved through faith in Jesus.” It’s hard to know just what the document means: it participates in the post-Vatican II Catholic vice of stringing together statements that appear to point toward a conclusion thought pleasing to the non-Catholic world but really don’t. Why would any serious Catholic leadership issue it?
