Public Catholic discusses any number of controversial topics.
Sometimes, the conversation gets blunt. There are days when I’m the bluntest of all.
But the purpose of Public Catholic is to equip people so that they can go out into the world and be the light that Jesus called all of us to be.
People who disrespect the Holy Father, are, in my opinion, speaking for the darkness.
I’ve deleted almost all such comments that have shown up here, with the exception of a few that I allowed as an illustration of what not to say.
I understand that Pope Francis has said things that unsettle people, and I have no problem with commenters who express their feelings of being unsettled. I have no problem with honest questions and honest seeking. In fact, I not only encourage them, I often share them. We are all seekers in our walk with Christ.
These are things we need to work through together, in faith.
But Pope Francis is the pope. He is Peter. I will not tolerate spiteful and malicious attacks on his character on this blog.
Tu est petra.
Et portae inferni non praevalebunt.
