…Elizabeth Scalia, who writes “The Anchoress,” said that while the mainstream media tend to view blogs as “little more than a means of self-promotion,” the Catholic blogs generally are real sources of “Catholic clarity.”
But bloggers can’t claim to be purveyors of clarity unless they do so with charity, she said.
“Charity is one of the biggest challenges we face,” she said, because “freedom is both a gift and a source of temptation for our egos.” (Source)
Why does “charity” get such a high place in these discussions? What about the truth and the cover-ups in CanChurch? How come that’s not discussed?
Please! Have some regard for the truth about the baby-murdering enablers that are on the dole in the Catholic Church. That’s what we should be talking about, not some stupid, diversionary tactics like good manners. They should listen to Pio, instead:
“I beg you not to criticize me by invoking charity, because the greatest charity is to deliver souls held fast by Satan in order to win them over to Christ.” – Saint Padre Pio
Besides, we wouldn’t be having issues with “charity”, if some of the members of the Council who hosted this conference actually practiced it themselves.
Hypocrisy doesn’t sell in the blogosphere.
