Dealing with dissenters...

The inimitable Larry of Acts of Apostasy came up with some brilliant responses to the US National 'Catholic' Reporter's last editorial in support of the ordination of women.

Here is an extract of his post on the subject:

"By now, most of you are probably aware that the National Catholic Distorter published an editorial yesterday, in which their front-page blurb said:

We say: Barring women from ordination to the Catholic priesthood is an injustice that cannot be allowed to stand. The call to the priesthood is a gift from God.

Not being one to pass up on an opportunity to be Snarky for Jesus, I started following the Distorter on Twitter today, and sent three tweets to the their account, @NCRonline.

@NCRonline in 4th Cent: Barring any preaching that God isn't a Trinity is an injustice and cannot be allowed to stand. We support Arius.

...@NCRonline in 1500's: Barring the king from divorcing & remarrying is an injustice & can't be allowed to stand. We support King Henry VIII. 1521: Barring preaching of sola scriptura is an injustice that cannot be allowed to stand. We support Martin Luther."

With that typical hypocrisy of liberals they banned him!  Do go read his whole post (and follow him on twitter!).

Thanks for the link! And that's the first time I've ever been called inimitable.

That's a compliment, right? ;-)

God bless!
