1--It's my blog, and if I get tired of you, or I think you are being abusive of one of the community of people who visit here, yu're gone.
2--If you think you have been unfairly banned or censured, see # 1.
3--I'm Catholic. If that bugs you tough shit. If you want to hang out and discuss differences, fine, more than fine. If you want to argue with me and we, fine. If you get to the point of being a troll, see #1.
4--Never, ever presume to be disrespectful to Our Lord, Our Lady, His Saints or His Sacraments.
5--The Church is one, holy, apostolic and catholic. Note that it says nowhere, "perfect". There are people and groups within the church that need criticism, and at times even ridicule. (The Fathers of the Church did so quite often!) Just remember, that these people are part of the church--not the Church. Treat our mother, in exile here, with respect due the Church founded by Christ.
Ex-Paratrooper, Ex-Neo Pagan Cult Leader, Ex-husband (twice) Grandpa who reverted to the Church Christ founded, and constantly struggles with the effects of an amoral life. I despise disingenuous writing, speaking and argumentation. I don't trust priests, brothers or sisters, but do trust the priesthood and the ideal of religious life. I once tried my vocation but left the novitiate of the Franciscan Brothers of Christ the King, when I realized that sodomy was part of the normative lifestyle of the congregation. (They were finally suppressed by the Archbishop of Indianapolis--after the paperwork from Davenport caught up to them!)
I believe in the teachings of the Holy Catholic church, and have a great sence of awe in the presence of the Eucharist, which I prefer to call the Blessed Sacrament.
I also Believe in the "lavender Mafia"--a cabal of sodomites infesting and corrupting the American Catholic Church.
I actually do have a sence of humor, but I don't do it well in writing.
