My dear readers,
It is my intention to retire Socon or Bust before Christmas.
I have been planning to do this for nearly a year now, but just didn’t know when to let the curtain fall, so end of year seems to be the most appropriate.
The reasons for this departure are many and varied, with no one reason taking any priority over the other. Sometimes, you just know when it’s time. We’ve done some pretty important work over the past 5 years, especially considering the modest traffic that we get. I’m very proud of what Socon or Bust and our readers have been able to accomplish for the betterment of society and the Church. Exposing the rot in the Catholic Church and forcing the Bishops, Church Lapdog Press, and the rest of the KoolAid Krowd to face their evident scandals is a necessary function for the laity, much to chagrin of the go-along-to-get-along gang. With the internet today, whether they like it or not, transparency is not merely a virtue, it is a requirement if you are to retain any credibility. Besides, not all of us can be swept up in hopey, dopey talk of a “new evangelization” with all of the toys that go along with it (i.e.Facebook, a Blog, and Twitter (O my!)). Someone needs to point out that the new evangelization is nothing more than a PR stunt when the horse dung needs to be cleaned out of the stalls, first.
This is farewell, rather than goodbye. I don’t know where or when or if I will return to the blogosphere. I am leaving that decision to Providence.
In the mean time, I will be taking a long break to reflect on God’s plan for me and for my family. Please keep Steve and I and our families in your prayers, and we will do the same for you.
A Blessed Advent, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to the many!
Socon or Bust
p.s. I am still committed to bringing Michael Voris to Ottawa for a one night talk between May 21-24. I also have a prior committment to a young lady to raise money for her to travel to Florida for some pro-life training in February. After Socon or Bust closes down, these developments and associated updates for these events can be tracked on The Rosarium’s website.
