"From anger, hatred, and all ill will, deliver us, O Lord." You are wrong, there.

Well then, you're calling the Litany of the Saints wrong.


Let me clarify: you are wrong to apply this to Ann's writings. She is merely calling out evil in an unusually blunt fashion. I see far too many people use the "turn the other cheek, anger is wrong" concept as an excuse for complacency or even cowardice in the face of evil. Courtesy toward enemies, taken to an extreme, becomes capitulation.

Disagree. Righteous anger and "seething, visceral hatred" are not the same thing. Any time you use words such as "seething visceral hatred" a little voice in your head should be warning you that these are words that Jesus never would have uttered. To hate the entire Jesuit order and to denigrate our New Holy Father (who has done nothing to deserve our "righteous anger") is just plain wrong.
