The now-infamous confrontation between Hitchens and Father Rutler at Manhattan’s Union League Club on May 1 reveals a deadly weakness in the conservative movement. It shows how carelessly and reflexively we have fallen into the habit of treating our enemies as friends, and our friends as enemies. Many of us, it appears, have lost the ability to tell the difference. This is no trival flaw. Unless corrected, it spells doom for our movement, and perhaps for our Republic.
