We get a lot of that in Pembrokeshire from November to March each year.
And, each year I renew my vow to go and live in a beach hovel on Ithaca and eat grilled snapper or mountain goat all washed down with rough red wine; and say my Rosary to the lonely waves.....you can see the state I'm in, but, actually, today it is anonymous commentators that have provoked my bile.
Also, those who make their comments using a pseudonym, just as bad if not worse.
If you are 'Anonymous' or 'Cub' please take this off before commenting
They are hiding behind a mask; one that they have assumed on a whim. They adopt names such as "Cub" or Exprodcatholic" (please note that I am using pseudonyms for those using pseudonyms.....it gets even more complicated from here on!) But, I have no wish to encourage these 'beings' to comment on this post, in fact, I wish to actively discourage them full stop.
If you have a view it is not an unreasonable expectation that you would have the courage to put your name behind it.
It follows, also, that if you are a Catholic you would have the courage to speak up for the faith when it is called for.
Or do you, at the meeting of the Parish fuehrers, slip a mask over your face when you wish to say something that you know will provoke their ire. Like "Whatever happened to the communion rails?" or "Why has someone placed that horrible bunch of flowers on the head of the statue of Our Lady?"
Perhaps these anonymous types and their nom de web counterparts just say nothing and let the matter go, it's so much easier than putting one's identity to something.
Enough of this droning on.......suffice to say that all, reasonable comment is welcome on this blog but to those who wish to hide their identity, please go and, how can I put this in a Catholic manner?
Shove off! Phew, that took all of my powers of restraint!
Note: This does not apply to those bloggers who use a pseudonym but whose identity is well known and available within the blog profile information.
