Anonymous comments are once again closed for awhile. I think some of my anonymous commenters start drinking pretty early on Fridays - or they are still drunk after being up so late on Thursday night. Weekends seem to be the opportune time for anonymice to leave their sometimes passive-aggressive, most times, mean-spirited comments. I find the anonymous harassment annoying, largely because they are cheap shots without any back-up. Obviously I am getting under someones skin - just because I exist. One would imagine these people would be happy to identify themselves, especially since they feel the need to assert their superiority over myself. I certainly won't contest that however.
That said, it is apparent at least one or two of my anonymice enemies are known on the blogosphere and therefore they want/need to hide their identity to preserve their good Catholic image. It is a typical example of church-people duplicity and dishonesty - and is down right hypocritical. Which may be why they were so easily dismissed in the first place...
A journalist asked me recently why I blog about such people - especially concerning the shadowy side of Catholics in monasteries, parishes, as well as the assortment of online Catholic dissociative personalities. I answered I just find it interesting to point out that it doesn't matter if one is conservative or liberal, traditional or moderate, or even progressive - the Church has always been comprised of sinners and phonies working a rather vulnerable audience. I'm right with them of course - but at least I try really hard to be honest about it.
So don't be afraid to criticize, shame, condemn or ridicule me - just identify yourself for what you are when doing so.
