Traditional Catholic Web Pages - Ratings: Tradition in Action



I never realised such websites were rated.
.
From Catholic Culture:

Tradition In Action:  Description

Tradition in Action claims to be "committed to defend the perennial Magisterium of Holy Mother Church and Catholic traditions. TIA also works for a restoration of Christian civilization, adapted to contemporary historical circumstances."
.
However, TIA's members attempt to do this by ridiculing the Roman clergy, the Pope, and many prominent Catholic leaders and religious. Their manner of presenting pictures and commentary completely aside from any context is both a misrepresentation of facts and disgraceful to the Church and Her hierarchy. While ostensibly seeking to reinstate traditions in the Church, this site ridicules the living Tradition of the Church’s Magisterium and therefore, it cannot validly claim a right to defense of Holy Mother Church. We recommend avoiding it altogether. - Link
.
And to think I would link to stories and photos on that website.  Uber-trads can be as dangerous as the ultra-liberals, and both undermine the Magisterium.

  1. Catholic Culture permits only donors to comment on their site, “To ensure well-meaning comments, only donors are allowed to Sound Off”.

    Need I say more?

    (by the way, you are running a tab on my comments, aren't you, Mr. Nelson?)

  2. "The uber-trads can be as dangerous as the ultra-liberals, and both undermine the Magisterium."

    Gosh, I think ubers can be more dangerous. You can blame bad formation or ignorance for the lib garbage, but uber-trads remind me of the pharisees. They know all the "right" things but have the wrong spirit.

    And we all know what Jesus thought of them. . .

    Scary.

    I KNOW!!. You are SO right. These people seems, truly, psychologically a bit unhinged. I think this is where I saw those Sr. Lucy photos, LOL. As my father was fond of saying: moderation in all things...

  6. That is not true about Catholic Culture, Pablo. Or, maybe try only allow donors to comment, but they will and do respond to serious e-mails, and they are prompt.

    Catholicculture.org's site reviews are great, and they are fair. I have seen some very traditionalist sites get good reviews there as well.

  7. Oh, and by the way, Terry, I didn't "realise" you were British, haha.

    I once worked with a guy who put "Happy Labour Day!" on the restaurant's marquee. The manager was not amused, and made him change it. Dumb story, but tangentially relevant, I think.

  8. Sorry Pablo - I accidently deleted your comment - I have to get used to the approval thing. But I assure you Trad In Action doesn't give a hoot what Catholic Culture has to say.

  9. 'TIA also works for a restoration of Christian civilization, adapted to contemporary historical circumstances."'

    Does this mean they'll ban TV and women secretaries, if they get 'in'?

  10. I don't know if I can trust Catholic Culture - they haven't rated your blog yet Terry. Kinda shoots down their credibility.

    :-)

  14. Terry, when I first read your response, I thought you said you edited it so that I didn't come off as so nuts lololol. I will be the first to admit I'm not only nuts, but slow-witted. But I keep trying.
    Peace!

  15. Mr. Terry,

    Don't become as all the rest.

    Archbishop Fulton Sheen gave a sermon once on The End of Controversy.

    Church Militant does not compromise, nor does it surrender.

    Also, now when my name is clicked, it does not show who and what I am by revealing my info and web and blog sites.

    I would appreciate being made visible.

    Mucho appreciado.

  17. "...Sorry Pablo - I accidently deleted your comment..."

    Wow.

    It was one of most prolific pontiffications to date...

    It would have eased tentions in the Middle East, solved the oil crisis, and located Osamer Been Loafin' in Texas.

    Oh, the humanity!
