I find it interesting that the MadPest blog is so critical of Catholicism. Sure there is much to be critical about. BUT at least (especially in the world of blog, but also in the RC church itself) freedom of discussion is allowed.
Contrast that with MP's blogs: MP allows no comments that do not lavish with praise his unemplyed 'can.' The MP blog in many way makes the RC church a leader in tolerance. MP can't get a job, so in typical English bigotry toward RC he uses ugly comments about RC to delight his more bigoted 'cultist'. That usually gets him some suppport. His position on other issues, MUST, MUST be accepted as-----well infallible.
And the money thing.I have no difficulty finding the budget for our parish. MP Slogan: "Send me money because even the COE won't have me"From the MP blog I assume he uses the money the "cult" members send him is used for vacations, fancy restaurants, and some booze now and then. At least, that's what he tells others hs wants.
The point: If your own church thinks you're a dud, hell, just start your own.
