sites -- and parasites

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 17, 2005

Catholics for a Free Choice has set up a dummy WYD blog to shill for the transparently bogus "international youth coalition" that just happens to echo CFFC's talking points, etc. There are some amusingly bad attempts at forging spontaneous reactions in the comments boxes.

***

For the good guys' first-hand take on WYD, go here, here, and here.

Note that Tim Drake reports that some journalists are exploiting the event to squeeze out of the kids the anti-Church opinions they want to hear and broadcast -- a fact doubly confirmed by the "youths" of Kissling's cadre, gloating about "interviews galore." Surprised?

    What's your point, hUMPTY? You think it is no big deal that people who call themselves Catholics work against orthodoxy from within? Perhaps today is not the day, but someday we will have to deal with such people, vigorously and formally... unless they repent. They are like a cancer... They are described even more radically by St Paul as "gangrenous sores..." that ultimately poison the Body.

    Would not have known about this except for Diogenes. Guess it takes one to tell one. AMDG
