    The orthodox Catholic was previously isolated by the media and diocesan gatekeepers. The new media merely states what so many have tried to communicate one at a time. With Catholics representing around 20% of he population, they could end he culture of death and generally restore our culture to one of moral principles. Getting rid of the USCCB would be a giant step toward restoring a sense of individual Episcopal responsibility, energy and leadership. The blogs should work toward that goal.

    Somebody has to purge them! If the bishops won't speak up (although a handful or so do)then the blogs are a great way to go.Too many of our parishioners are led astray by homilies given by priests who dissent from real Catholic teaching. I can't blog, so I just pray for them. (Priests and parishioners)

    And, may they get past the feminists who actually control the diocese.

    God bless every one of them! These Catholic bloggers are calling out the dissident nuns, priests, bishops etc. who have been a cancer on the Body of Christ. They have a huge task before them.
