Think about this for a moment. If you owned a business or were the president a large organization, how would you feel if your lower employees got together regularly to grumble about your leadership? What if they met together for the sole purpose of questioning your leadership and credibility? What if they gossiped and maligned you behind your back? What if they created chat rooms and spread it all around the internet. Would these persons be considered "faithful" to your institution? Would you like these people? Would you want to help these people? Of course not. Such actions are cowardly, immature, and small.

Just as politicians need a healthy media to shine sunlight onto their actions, the Church needs Catholics to blog about the mistakes Catholic leaders, including the Popes make.

No, sorry. I read RorateCaeli all day yesterday and almost succumbed to the gloom and doom there. What went on there yesterday was gravely sinful.
(By the way, I'm an occasional trad blogger too. Here's where I blog: http://www.summorumpontificum.net/ Do a Google search for Summorum Pontificum and see what results you get. This is just to say I understand these debates fairly well.)
