Would non-traditionalist Thomists or Dominicans agree?
At any rate, the essay deserves a longer response, but I will say that charity has priority and primacy over all else. The problem may lie in St. Thomas's treatment of the virtue of religion, which may need to be reconsidered. (Can we say that religion is concerned with what is directed to the God as end, while the theological virtues are concerned with God as object, if religion is concerned with what we owe to God but charity is also owed to God?)
