What cracks me up is that Father Rosica thinks blocking my @CtCatholicCorner Twitter account accomplishes anything. Who only has ONE Twitter account these days? 😎 And if all my accounts were blocked or closed I could still see using my family members and friends accounts. You can't hide on social media Father, so put your big boy pants on and deal with it.
The progressives in the Church today seem to be under the idea that they can silence the Catholic laity on social media. They can't. They can demand we stop using the word "Catholic" like they did to Michael Voris so many years ago, but that didn't silence Voris- it just made him more militant- hence the perfect name for his apostolate 'Church Militant'. I think they did him a favor as 'Church Militant' is much more fitting a name than his previous "Real Catholic TV" for the times we are living in.
That said, the future for Catholic bloggers who voice their opinions on all matters Catholic may very well find themselves silenced in one media field as Deacon Nick Donnelly was when his bishop forced Donnelly to shut down his blog. So Nick popped back up on Twitter and continues to voice his Catholic opinions on social media.
You will not silence us! And you only look like spineless cowards when you try.
*FYI: Excellent article on Deacon Nick Donnelly over on Archbishop Cranmer website: http://archbishopcranmer.com/protect-the-pope-francis-destroying-catholic-nature-church/
Quote: "It appeared, then, that Deacon Nick Donnelly was just a bit too Catholic for the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales. For as long as Pope Benedict XVI sat upon St Peter’s Throne issuing the occasional motu proprio favouring the old paths (Jer 6:16), Deacon Nick’s commitment to immutable truths and infallible moral law were tolerated, not least because they chimed with the Vatican under Benedict, if not quite with the CBEW. But under Francis, the traditionalists appear to be on the retreat: they are sidelined or censored while those progressive Roman Catholics who advocate a more tolerant approach to priestly celibacy, same-sex unions, abortion or divorce and re-marriage are not merely tolerated but actively promoted.Back to Fr. Rosica on Twitter...
Benedict XVI was a Catholic Herald kind of pope; Francis inclines toward The Tablet. Or at least that’s how it appears. Certainly, the Diocese of Lancaster isn’t averse to promoting the latter on its website, giving high profile coverage to liberal bishops who are calling for a “radical re-examination of human sexuality”, while downplaying (/ignoring) the traditional teaching.
For Deacon Nick, such a radical re-examination is unnecessary, unholy and un-Catholic. Indeed, for him it amounts to apostasy: such teachings do not ‘develop’ through synodical debate and legislative resolution, for that would incline toward the more heterodox Anglican view. No, if the Magisterium is infallible, its teaching must be protected and the Deposit of Faith defended. Dissenting bishops and cardinals must be called out, corrected and rebuked using Scripture and referencing the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Those who do not repent ought to be excommunicated."[clipped]
...I still see you Father. 😄
Father Rosica's interpretation of the Holy Virgin Mary riding a bike to save the earth from global warming tweet...
This is the same priest who a few years ago threatened to sue a Catholic blogger, Vox Cantoris Blog, for daring to voice his opinions on the failings of Father Rosica and other progressive Catholic clergy.
Father Rosica lost that battle badly, but he didn't learn much from it as he still seems to be trying to shut down and block authentic conservative Catholic laity who speak out against the progressive agenda in the Church.
Why bother blocking Catholic laity from your social media? What are you trying to hide Father Rosica?
What don't you want us to see?
In Christ and on social media whether the progressives in the Church like it or not,
