More about the organization of ‘c’atholic dissidents (hint: Fishwrap)

The National ‘c’atholic Reporter’s combox travails. Wherein Fr. Z responds. (UPDATE: John Allen leaving!)

I saw over at Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) that the promethean neopelagian powers-that-be have closed the comboxes on all their posts, articles, entries.

Get out your handkerchiefs: Fishwrap on the fading “Francis Moment”…..

Over at Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter), the editor is already starting to wring his hands.
