From Acts Of The Apostacy with my emphases and comments:
Blogger: I’m Burning The NCReporter!
(AoftheAP) A little-known central Kansas Catholic blogger has announced that he will burn a copy of the National Catholic Reporter on his front lawn on Monday September 13, the Memorial of St John Chrysostom.
Renfrew Dachs, who blogs at ‘Orthodachs Review’, announced on Labor Day his intention to set fire to the most recent issue of the left-leaning[ paper. As he wrote on his blog:
"It is time to expose this publication for what it is. It is a heterodox publication that is trying to masquerade as a Catholic publication, seeking to deceive many within the Church."
Dachs' blog and Facebook page, which combined boasts all of 50 followers, [OORAH!] has been inundated with hits and friend requests since his statement. He says that the split between supporters and detractors is fairly even.
"I’ve had people tell me they’re coming to attend the burning. A bunch have mailed me copies of the National Catholic Reporter, along with some back issues of Commonweal and America, so I expect a pretty large fire Monday. I’ve also received a number of nasty emails, too. They’re not death threats – pretty much just folks telling me to stop being judgmental, or that I’ll harm the environment by increasing my carbon footprint, with all that smoke and stuff."
Dachs said he chose the memorial of St John Chrysostom for this event because the revered Doctor of the Church, whose name means ‘Golden Mouth’, defended Church teachings throughout his life. "The stuff the NCR publishes, on the total opposite spectrum of what he taught, of what the Church teaches," Dachs said. "Reiki, women priests, gay marriage? I think St John would get in their grill over those positions, so I thought it kinda appropriate."
Enjoy the rest there.
I have never had a copy of the NCR or else….
Now that I think of it, we could add some of Manilo Sodi’s works.
I suspect Vincenzo will be on this one soon.
