Defender of the Faith

For years I’ve read Christopher Johnson’s first rate blog Midwest Conservative Journal.  If you want to know what is going on in the Anglican world, his is the blog to read.  I have always been impressed by how frequently a man who says he will probably never convert to Catholicism has taken up the cudgels in defense of the Faith.  Recently Newsweek decided to give Richard Dawkins, an ignorant, in matters of religion, bigot, an opportunity to vent his hatred of Catholicism by asking him to comment on the Anglican initiative of Pope Benedict.  (That is akin to asking Madonna, the strumpet, not the Mother of God, to give her opinion on the Summa Theologica.)  Christopher gives his hate filled screed a fisking to remember here.  Bravo Christopher!  You may never swim the Tiber, but you will always have a cheering section on this side of the bank!

  1. Good ole Christopher Johnson. He makes reading the demise of the Anglican Communion fun!

    Seriously though, I feel for the many orthodox Anglicans having to deal with the deterioration of their faith. When I mean fun, I mean Christopher Johnson writes sarcastically the inanities and absurdities that Anglicans have to put up with. From “U2charists” to clown services.

  2. Thanks for the kind words. And underline “probably” up top there. I never say never; Damascus Roads and all that. As for the Anglicans, whatever it is that I do really isn’t that tough when folks keep teeing them up for me like that.
