“... obsessed, scrupulous, self-appointed, nostalgia-hankering virtual guardians of faith or of liturgical practices...”
I don’t like dedicated, articulate, responsible, Tradition-minded Catholics who strive to live the Faith without compromise.
“... trolling pontiffs and holy executioners!”
I don’t like people who challenge me and who call me out when I advocate error.
“... people who are against everyone and everything...”
Faithful Catholics who speak confidently in defence of the sacredness of life, authentic human sexuality and the sacredness of the Sacrament of Matrimony don’t fit my definition of (c)atholicism.
“... people who are for something, something positive that can transform lives and engage and impact the culture...”
Everybody should be nice like me.
“... very disturbed, broken and angry individuals...”
I am offended by passionate, joyfully orthodox, Magisterium-loving members of the Body of Christ who are not ashamed to be Catholic.

Many of my colleagues in the “secular” media industry have said that Francis has made it fun to be a religion reporter and journalist again... because it is so easy to spin his comments and gain traction for the “progressive” agenda.
