I agree with B. Strickland & disagree with B. Callahan's statement regarding Fr James Altman’s tone as angry, judgmental, lacking charity & in a way causing scandal. I wonder what Callahan's statement would be about Our Lord's zeal for His Father’s house at the temple? (Mt 21:12-13, Mk 11:15-17, Lk 19:45 & Jn 2:13-17). They plotted to kill Jesus after His outburst & Callahan plans to appease those demanding Altman’s silence. Yet, despite the zeal, truth can’t be silenced.
