But how can you blame the posters ? Unfortunately, the Catholic Church has done wonders at making itself an object of huge controversy, and the posts merely reflected the current state of events - not "hate". From what I read, the state of the church was what commented on, and we got plenty of comments on whether it was up or down. I truly object to the use of the word "hate" to characterize that thread, and to slander the forum in general.
If you re-read my post in the beginnig of this thread, you'll see the words, "I'm sorry", in there. I admitted that I got angry and had a reaction.
I was actually pleased to read one of your posts in that thread (surprise!) because you understand that the problems in the Church are really due to the rogue actions of members that act outside its fundamental teachings. Blaming the institution as a whole because of the actions of some of its members is a big jump. I'm glad you see a difference.
If you knew me well enough for the years that I was over at the Shop, you'd know that I'm not one to pick fights at all and generally get along with everyone. That's still the case.
