MY PET PEEVE
Catholic blogs and comment boxes are overflowing with people criticizing the bishops for not defending the Church's teachings.
But when I'm on secular bulletin boards like the Fray engaging in debates about these teachings, I find myself alone.
Where are all these brave defenders of the faith? Yelling into an echo chamber, I'm afraid.
Carping about the bishops isn't going to do that much. Witnessing to the secular world will. But we don't really care to do that. We'd rather sit around and complain about how the bishops aren't doing enough, and can you believe there's a Dignity mass at this Church, and how could the bishop meet with this known dissenter, etc. etc.
