    John Allen has an interesting question and opinion about this issue in his NCR column 6/8. Why did the censure of Elizabeth Johnson come from the USCCB Doctrine Committee, following recent pattern, while the censure of Farley came from the Vatican:
    ” I wonder if there may be another factor. Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., chair of the U.S. bishops’ doctrine committee, experienced fairly serious blowback from the Johnson censure and wound up engaged in time-consuming and controversial public correspondence defending it. Perhaps the thought on Farley’s case was that Cardinal William Levada, who’s set to retire soon as the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith anyway, could better afford the political heat.”
    Makes sense to me.
