NCR Purge?

Now this is interesting. I'm hearing Shea isn't the only one fired from NCR.

Heads-up: I'm more a Breitbart guy, and my lifeline to Catholic news is headlines at New Advent. But this smells funny. Can someone tell me what's up? This seems a bit more like a newfound decision by a Catholic publication that they have been tolerating something that can be tolerated no more.

Someone informed, fill me in.

I sure hope so. The downfall of conservative and traditional organizations has been that we have become lax about purging those who are there to sabotage and corrupt, in the name of "tolerance."

She was also mentioned in the life site article (I thought I linked it here.)

Shea, to be fair, doesn't act like some predictable left-wing shill. I believe he still goes off on the 'homosex' thing. (Though I find his approach cringe-inducing. Not good rhetoric.)

But I also notice he despises the GOP. I think the tell this time around is 'You can tell a lot about someone's loyalties by who they seem to near exclusively bash, when they say they dislike both Trump and Hillary.'

Yep, paging Rod Dreher.

Yeah, I don't read Dreher's columns, but looking over his list it's just Anti-Trump, Anti-Trump, Anti-Trump, Anti-Trump. 'I CERTAINLY won't be voting for Hillary though..!'

Funny how the people who say Hillary is so horrible but they can't vote for Trump sure have a habit of attacking Trump exclusively and being quiet about Hillary.
