    Fr. Z, so far I’ve only seen the following:

    #Catholic – for anything having to do with Catholicism. I use this the most.
    #Papist – for anything relating to the Pope
    #Vatican – Vatican issues
    #Benedict – Pope Benedict
    #xvi – Pope Benedict (someone used this immediately after using #Benedict)
    #abuse and #sexualabuse – Which ugh. I would not want to use personally, but some are doing it. I notice those who are atheists and/or anti-Catholic like to use these.

    That’s what I’ve noticed so far. BTW, did you see the comments by ex-NY Mayor Ed Koch? Bless his heart. He said to leave the Pope and Catholics alone, enough is enough. Unexpected but I loved it!

    Actually I think #Papist is in regards to @AmericanPapist and his blog.
