I'm not a regular reader of Barnhart's stuff but I've read some of it in the past. I've never considered anything she wrote unworthy of reading until this article.
I fail to see the "reason" you speak of. All I saw was a long rant. And an admission of seething hate. I found her lacking reason because she didn't give any credible sources to substantiate her allegations. She didn't state facts objectively but resorted to biased, insulting descriptions. And while acting as if she's an authority on Christianity she displayed a complete lack of Christian charity. Any point she might have made was, for me, lost in her venom. A depth of venom that made her seem less focused and logical than anything I've previously seen from her. I don't recall reading anything especially objectionable from her in the past. But if this is how she'll be writing in the future, I'll take a pass on her articles whatever their subject. Peace be with you.
Went back and re read considering yours and others perspective. Yeah I can see where those from the church taken aback. I give you that.
Being a non catholic, I gotta kinda agree with her on the Jesuit? part. Yes there are exceptions to everything, but in general, all the Jesuit priests I know in the public sector are . . . I want to say scum, but will be nice. They certainly do not share my values. Pretenders many of them, starting with the governor of California and those a holes in the 60's protesting for all things socialism/communism. He being from Argentina, he was in the middle of all that crap. Was he picked out because he withstood all of them. We can only pray.

That doesnt mean they dont exist. Mentioned above is how the SP was implemented within 48 hours of its dissemination, but without details. It (TLM) was sited in a place described as a crypt, and sufficiently modified so that people stopped coming after a few weeks. As for the Jesuits, Malachi Martin explains their transformation in the 20th century in his book The Jesuits.
Some refer to Ann as being angry (perhaps true), although I see her passion, and perhaps frustration that other worthy candidates were overlooked.
