Rhett Engelking does not represent the Catholic Church at all -- he's a member of the Secular Franciscan Order, so he is not even an Ordinary Priest or Brother. It's like being an Honorary Space Ranger for Buzz Lightyear. He represents the failed philosophy of Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, who brought the Catholic Church back a long way during is reign over the USCCB which ended in the 2000's. The new head of the USCCB (Timothy Cardinal Dolan) represents a dramatic move *away* from the Socialist/Communist focus that the Church had under Bernardin. Rhett believes in the Bernardin Machine (the socialist way). Real Catholics don't.
