I find it fascinating at just how selective certain "Catholic" websites are in reporting and/or responding to stories regarding those they either support or hate.
As I wrote HERE, almost no Catholic blog or website reported on the article by Father James Martin in which he unequivocally stated the teachings of the Catholic Church in regard to homosexuality. Father Martin made it very clear that the Church condemns homosexual activity and same sex marriage. As far as I know, only John Zuhlsdorf responded to Father Martin's article, and he did so with his usual response: propaganda, aspersions and lies.
Another news story completely ignored by the "faithful catholic" internet was the fact that a court found Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, hero of "faithful catholics", guilty of defrauding his brother, also a priest, of family inheritance. Vigano was ordered to pay $2 million to his brother. Vigano also defrauded his sister and settled out of court to pay her. You can read this story HERE.
You won't find the Vigano story on Church Militant, Lifesitenews, Father Z, or any other "faithful catholic" blog or website.
I wonder why.

An amazing aspect of these sites is that they are basically clones of one another, writing about the same subjects from the same point of view with no original thought. As I have stated previously, it is almost like they were all written by the same person. There is certainly no doubt that they are all driven by the same spirit.
I don't think these "catholic" bloggers actually consult each other, and yet they all manage to come to the same conclusion: the Catholic Church is dying and Pope Francis and his "henchman" bishops are actively participating in that destruction.
These bloggers and those who follow them believe they are the only true Catholics left on earth, and it is they who will save the Church and, by extension, the world. We have not seen this much rebellion and rejection of authority in the Church since the Reformation.
Just how did these bloggers end up with their decidedly non-Catholic world view? How have they become so confident in their own sanctity and their right to label all others, including the Vicar of Christ, as evil? Why is it happening now?
