PRAYTELL, WHAT'S GOING ON IF ANYTHING?
We've all heard about the Bishop in England who cracked down on the "Protect the Pope" Blog. Months ago I reported that Cardinal Muller had made comments of concern about bloggers being divisive in a speech to the Anglican Ordinariate also in England.
Is Pope Francis being the administrator that Popes (Saint) John Paul II and Benedict were not? Is he micromanaging the Church to bring her back into line with orthodoxy, civility and the need once again for imprimaturs for written articles and books on the faith and a censor to boot, like in those horrible pre-Vatican II days?
With that in mind and certainly I don't want to make anything more of it than it is, but I've noticed that the Praytell blog is awefully more domesticated and sober recently, like in the last two or three weeks and a lot more boring. And fewer people are commenting there. I stopped a couple of months ago because of its editorial inconsistancies and complete unfairness toward orthodox commenters.
Have they been warned by higher ups? Just asking. Anyone know? Am I the only one who has noticed a shift away from their more provocative posts and negativity about certain churchmen?
