Call in the investigative teams!
Blogger-talk has it that a man posing as a priest has a new blog called On Guard Against the Catholic "Lunatic Fringe". (OMIGOSH! Maybe it's Jeffrey!) I love the title - "Lunatic Fringe". LOL! The speculation that he is not a real priest is rampant however. I read his posts and found nothing offensive. I gather he is not a big fan of the Motu Proprio, but hey, is that a sin now? (Of course I don't know what the rules are for impersonating a priest.) There is a blog "Ask Sr. Mary Martha" - does anyone know if she is a real nun? Her site is immensely popular and fun to read, but what's the difference?
I've often said that we don't really know who most bloggers are, and on what authority do any of us write? So some one has a long pedigree of academic letters behind their name - that doesn't make them the Magesterium. Not a few bloggers have written professionally and are published authors - so? Even bloggers whom we know are priests - they aren't necessarily speaking ex-cathedra. For the most part we know who these bloggers are and into what categories they fall - so we trust them.
Nevertheless, there are many other bloggers who use pseudonyms and write orthodox to trad sounding stuff - how are we to know they aren't part of the "lunatic fringe"? What if one or two are priests posing as laymen?
At least with me you know my real name, you know my story and have realized I'm a lunatic.
A blog, is a blog, is a blog. Lighten up.
(Just a note - I was deleted from a couple of blogrolls once because I linked to an "unapproved" blog. You people are so strict.)
