It takes guts, I’ll say that much.
Marty Haugen e-mails the Curt Jester to settle the question that had a few Catholic bloggers tied up in knots: Was that post to my combox genuine? They sure weren’t going to take my word for it.
I’ll offer a comment that the Catholic Right (at least the internet edition of them) just don’t get it, generally speaking. They blog, they comment, they monitor other blogs and doings, they do research on people they don’t like, and they form little clubs they think are cute, but probably reveal more about a lack of maturity than anything else.
What worries me is that he’s been thinking about this for six weeks.
This assumes that other people actually troll the internet daily. That’s what they would do. Internet geeks can’t imagine there is life off the computer–probably where all the liberals are hanging out, eh?
Jeff’s thread also shows that conservatives can do poor pop psychology along with the worst of the rest of us.
Blessed are they who pierce our conscience
Amen to that.
