Just ran across one of the best descriptions of the term 'Neo-Cath' yet.

"The prot Right, with Exposition and the Rosary"...

Favourite quotes: "Just shut up and vote Republican".

It certainly seems true that the Neo-Cath experience is uniquely a product of the United States and the heavily protestantised Christian political Right. It probably explains why there is no Neo-Cath middle ground in Britain. There are only, as far as I've been able to tell, screeching leftist Cathomarxist Tabletistas and Trads. (Guess who's in charge?)

Makes for a nice change, actually.

In related news,

these notes from an American Anglican are interesting. Call it, "Lord, make me a Catholic, but just not yet".
Recently, I’ve lamented that the default option for many Anglo-Catholics is Rome. Those who are so minded, particularly in England, had best take a closer look at the Roman Catholic Church in England.

To say that the English RC Church is inhospitable to traditionalists would be an understatement. Its bishops willfully undermine Pope Benedict’s bringing back the Latin Mass. Sordid liberals have been running the show for decades and likely will for years to come. Even worse, as Damian Thompson has been documenting, if a bishop doesn’t like your parish because you’re too traditionalist for his tastes, he just may shut you down. And he may be so underhanded in how he goes about that, it would make even an Episcopalian blush.

U.S. Catholics used to be 100% Democrat until '68, the Summer of Hate. Now half are Freemasonic Moderate Progressives, while the other half are heretical Socialists.
