I have stopped looking at Crux as often as I did when it first entered the fray.
Why? They say they want “balance”. I don’t see much balance.
Today an email blurb arrived with teases about the fare they are proffering today. Leaving aside the subject matter:

One of you readers brought to my attention that Crux has a POLL today about the last Synod. I wouldn’t ordinarily pay much attention to this either but I was irritated at the blatant distortion in the questions. Scroll down from the top, it’s a way down on the left side.
Here is a screen shot… NB: It’s not like I’m trying influence your vote or anything…
UPDATE: The poll questions are, I hear, now rearranged. Don’t just click the choice at the bottom. Read them first.
First… how do I “feel”? Second, “not more mercy shown”? Really?
The implication is that since the Synod participants did not simply endorse Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried, they didn’t show “mercy”. I respond that it is NOT MERCIFUL to tell people who are objectively living in a bad state can go to Communion, it is NOT MERCIFUL simply to jettison the clear words of Christ in the Gospel.
Also, note how they pit “mercy” against “doctrine”. Grrrrr.
So, I think that you readers ought to go over there and help them with their poll. Scroll down, watching the left side.
Right now here are the results.
Get out and vote… Chicago style or not… and get your friends to vote too. Maybe even guide the mouse for them. CLICK HERE and scroll down, watching the left side.

I posted this just over 3 hours ago. Now just look what you have gone and done!
It’s nice to be helpful. Please make sure their poll is a great success! Get the vote out!

And where are we now?
UPDATE 7 Dec 2045 GMT:
It seems that you are still working on this. Good! Vote!
