Who cares what she thinks. We didn’t ask for her opinion. It’s not worth the paper she printed it on. Ann, who are you? Go back to your hole.

By commenting on this thread, everyone here really has taken an action of asking her opinion, so we do obviously care in some way.
Since it was transmitted electronically, no paper was involved, so relative worth can’t be established in that way.
I know a few things about Ann Barnhardt.
I don’t know anything about you.
While I am not Catholic, I am also not a Catholic basher.
I often learn from those who disagree with each other on points of reference that are specifically Catholic, and of which I have no real understanding.
But your post offended me, because I learned nothing, except that you are a jerk.
Consider yourself chastised, and retreat to your own hole.

Seems like there are plenty of FR newbies just lining up to bash ol' Ann. I notice none of you bother to counter her assertions - you just say "she is so mean!"
If you haven't bothered to read Ann's stuff, or know anything about her, let me give you a clue: she walks the walk, first of all, which is to say that she isn't just saying we should do this or that, she is doing it.
Second, she is deliberately blunt, because she seems to feel that capitulation, wishy-washiness, and lukewarm belief are some of the great plagues of our time, and the reason the Enemy is winning. The screeching I see from people on this thread seems to come mostly with the discomfort that blunt truth often brings. We'd all like to believe that everything is OK, and get upset when someone says, "Nope, things are horrible. We need to do something."
Lastly, Ann is fighting the good fight. I don't know if she is right about this particular issue, but on any given day, Ann is worth at least 10 of you conflict-averse newbies.
