Freaking finally.

Crude.

Good comments on this on the 'Triablogue' with John Bugay. You aptly make obvious the 'scortched earth' approach to apologetics on that blog.

He is rooting for the feminist radicals because he wants more than anything for the Catholic Church to be destroyed.

What John fails to realize is tha this own church, the PCA, exists because in the 1970s the PCUSA lost the battle to the radicals. His church exists because people like the LCWR nuns took over the Presbyterian Church.

Now, if the Catholic Church were merely a Protestant denomination and not the church that Christ founded than we could expect that at some point a group of orthodox Catholics would say, "Enough is enough" and start a new 'Catholic' Church all over again. But the Catholic Church cannot do that for obvious reason.

Hey Sean,

He is rooting for the feminist radicals because he wants more than anything for the Catholic Church to be destroyed.

That's the impression I get. In fairness, I wonder if John isn't particularly off his rocker on this subject compared to others at Triablogue. I know Steve just rages against Catholicism himself, but even he seemed to regard the move against the LCWR as a positive development. Bugay honestly seems angry that it's even happening.

I had no idea what Bugay's church is, but you know what? Maybe that's part of the problem here. Putting aside that the guy seems to have a thing against the church that is downright personal, not just doctrinal, imagine how annoying it must be to see the LCWRs looking like they're getting the ax. Sure, they're feminist radicals, but how embarrassing would it be if the Catholics succeeded where the PCUSA (and frankly, countless others) failed?
