“We vowed to make Crux a place where all voices could be heard, and we stuck to that pledge,” (Crux editor Teresa) Hanafin said on Crux, March 11.
Given 40+ years of alter-magisterial pontifications by regressive liberals who don't have the guts to admit they stopped being Catholic long ago but appear to revel in spreading their liturgical and theological cottoncandy among the innocent faithful, why on earth should Catholics tolerate a "news" agency that offers a platform to the last remaining hippies and heretics who want nothing less than to refashion the Church in their own image? Catholics have allowed pushy laity and poorly formed clergy to dominate the Vatican II narrative for far too long.
Crux was launched in September 2014. It aspired to cover “all things Catholic” with content to appeal to active Catholics, “casual” Catholics who may not be regular Mass attendees, and general readers interested in Pope Francis, religion and spirituality.
Revelation 3:15-16 DR
I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
There are plenty of faithful Catholic sites which offer truth, goodness and beauty to nurture the sin-sick soul back to health: the New Liturgical Movement; the National Catholic Register; EWTN; etc. Furthermore, there are plenty of blogs that "general readers" can access which faithfully and joyfully propose the Catholic Faith undefiled: Monsignor Charles Pope's blog, for one.
At the time of the news site’s launch, (Crux editor John L. Allen Jr) told CNA that the Catholic Church’s global presence and rich traditions justify focused news coverage. “(T)he Catholic Church matters and needs to be taken seriously by mainstream news outlets,” he said.
demons and monsters shall meet, and the hairy ones shall cry out one to another, there hath the lamia lain down, and found rest for herself.—Isaiah 34:14.
Crux could not represent the Church's true face because it was blinded by its devotion to a regressive liberal agenda which habitually attempts to elevate the fiction of relativism to the level of reality.
Catholic Pulse, a news and commentary website operated by the Knights of Columbus, will merge with Crux, adding its resources to Crux’s blend of staff-generated reporting and analysis with pieces by respected guest contributors. The Crux website will feature the tagline: “Keeping its finger on the Catholic Pulse.”—Crux
The Knights of Columbus and Crux are pleased to announce that they plan to enter into a partnership in which Crux will remain an independent news outlet headed by John Allen and Inés San Martín.
The project is designed to make one of the world's best known Catholic news platforms even stronger. The partnership will combine the Knights' resources and spirit of service with the journalistic experience and commitment of Crux.
As part of the project, Catholic Pulse, a news and commentary website operated by the Knights of Columbus, will merge with Crux, adding its resources to Crux's blend of staff-generated reporting and analysis with pieces by respected guest contributors. The Crux website will feature the tagline: "Keeping its finger on the Catholic Pulse."
Reporting and analysis by John Allen and Inés San Martín will continue to focus primarily on the Vatican, the Church and Catholic issues generally, and international religious freedom. The aim is to ensure that informed, responsible, and fair journalism helps to set the tone for discussion of Catholic affairs in the United States and around the world. Over time, plans call for additional contributors to be identified to add their commentary to the lineup.
The Knights will respect the editorial freedom of Crux, trusting it to present news and commentary in a way that serves the good of the Church.
