Anger, injustice, calumny, detraction, half-truths, insults and lies......how some Catholics (and others) respond on blogs and Twitter
I have recently read of a prominent Catholic woman who has been treated in a very evil manner by some people, including some Catholics. I have also just seen, on another website and on another blog, similarly insulting and unjust responses to various people and things. Some of these comments include bad language and serious insults. They are the sort of thing that previously would have landed people in court. Of course, there is a higher court. How do these things happen? This is not just "knock-about" stuff, but seriously insulting and slanderous statements and personal attacks. This seems to have got worse. Let it be said again that the word SIN applies just as much on the internet as anywhere else.
