Let Your Yea Be Yea
I have written only yesterday one post in praise of “Pewsitter”. The reason for that is that a Catholic blogger had started a rather snarky attack on him (and I know why: because he has been criticised on the site), and this attack was promptly echoed by the Snarky Attack Supremo of “c”atholic blogdom himself. No names here, because this is a Catholic blog and we should not engage in public attacks if we can avoid it, lest the atheists laugh.
The first site pulled its blog post. I notice now that the second site pulled its blog post, too.
My suggestion is that these people – who are supposed to be reputable bloggers – think twice about what they post; and when they post it, let it stay there. If they did so, they would obviously avoid posting such rubbish. And if they really did, they would at least have the dignity and balls to state to the entire blogging world: “this is what I think”.
This blog isn’t for the faint-hearted. But I never pull a blog post because of the reasons that moved the two above mentioned guys to pull theirs. What I write, I write in front of the Blessed Virgin, to the best of my knowledge and conscience, and hoping to be of service to Truth. Then it stays on the blog, too.
Let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay.
Otherwise you will look like a child playing with dangerous toys.
