Over on his blog, "Standing On My Head":
It seems my post on Anne Rice has got a link on some fan page of hers. I thought the post on Anne was rather charitable considering some of the stuff she's been hurling at the Catholic Church, but if you want to read some irrational comments from angry folks tootle on over to the combox for the Anne Rice post and scroll down.
I was going to delete the more vituperative ones, but on second thought its better to let them stand. They speak for themselves. If you want to witness the irrational fury of those who hate Christ's Church, you'll find some examples in the combox.
Of course, none of the commenters take the time and trouble to actually address the content of my post. None of them offer rational debate. Instead we get all the usual shallow anti-Catholic foot stomping and door slamming about 'homophobia', 'corruption', 'lies', etc. Just more raging accusations of 'being judgmental'. Honestly, how old are these people? 13? They sound like seventh grade girls saying, "I'm more mature than you are!!"
Exactly right. The same craziness is going strong here on Insight Scoop. Alas, as much as I would like to pour wine into a hole in the ground, I have several pressing deadlines/projects I have to work on today.
In the meantime, do read Fr. Longenecker's excellent post about Rice's most recent "criticisms" of the Catholic Church, titled, "Nice Anne Rice?" And, speaking of Fr. Longenecker, I'll be posting an interview with him on Ignatius Insight in the next day or two; it is about his book, More Christianity: Finding the Fullness of the Faith. And here is part of the Introduction to that fine book: "Further Up and Further In".
