  •  I must agree with this (5+ / 0-)
    and I think the anti-Catholic tone has gotten steadily worse, and the admins never make an effort to control it, as they do for any other kind of bigotry
    for a site that preaches tolerance, it seems the tolerance only extends to certain groups. It seems like catholic bashing is even encouraged, and hopefully it will be somewhat tempered with the departure of Kayyyleeeeeejoygray

      no special treatment for Catholics.  But not this week...

      don't always believe what you think

      To all of your points.  

      I'm not even Catholic anymore - I have fundamental disagreements with their teachings.   But the non-stop anti-Catholic church posts on the front page were ridiculous.

      I raised it once, and people said it wasn't about Catholics, it was about the church organization.  I don't know, that comes across as weakly to me as love the sinner, hate the sin.

      I haven't worshipped as a Catholic for fifteen years or more, and except as a guest at weddings or funerals I don't expect to again, but the tone around here has gotten vicious. There's plenty of fault to befound with the organization, but plenty of good, and plenty of good members, as well.  Apparently Catholic-bashing is the last safe place for bigots who think of themselves as progressive.

      If you think you're too small to be effective, you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.
