I love fisks; writing them and reading them. Most of the time, I like to fisk people who are being dopey about a particular fandom, or on writing, or something like that. But every now and then, there’s a Catholic idea being circulated that’s just begging for the wrath of Lori the Geek Organist to be visited upon it.
Yes, folks. A lot of times, some Catholics get it wrong. Normally, I’d just move past it (it’s hard to argue politics and religion, after all), but when the aforementioned idea is posted on the internet out there for the whole world to see and people actually believe that garbage, I just have to smack it down.
So, today’s episode of Fisk It From Orbit is brought to you by Rebecca Bratten Weiss (someone who apparently dislikes capitalization) with her opinion on “the difficult and uncomfortable non-negotiables of the gospel teaching.”
Given the title (once you manage to piece together what that strange, uncapitalized title even means), you’d think this whole post was a “duh” moment. Nobody (except our separated Protestant brethren, of course) thinks that only part of the Scriptures apply, or that what Christ said was optional. I mean, come on. We’re Catholics, right?
Well, according to Miss Bratten Weiss, that’s not correct.
Now . . . I’m going to try really REALLY hard not to be too nasty in this fisk; we’re all Catholics here, right?
As usual, the original post is in italics, and my commentary is in bold.
