A Double Standard?

You know something interesting? I’ve gotten lots of e-mail from angry folks who demand that I never refer to the Catholic Church on this blog. To do so would prove I am “angry,” in their (angry) estimate. Yet these same folks are quite happy to hear the stories of converts to Catholicism, and to make celebrities of such converts; they expect them to tell stories of their days in darkness, and to write books and articles and blogs giving the reasons why they now believe Catholicism is superior to what they knew before. They want this. They expect this. But if someone goes the other way, they demand that they follow a different code of conduct.

I’m determined to blog on the same range of topics as I’ve always blogged on. I’ve gotten more e-mails, from Catholic and Protestant friends, encouraging me to do so. So, I shall.

Don’t feel you must read it.
