Banned!

Christian Apologetics Society has been banned!

Not by Blogger, Google, Technorati, or anyone else that really counts. No, we have been banned by the more tolerant and open-minded Spirit of Vatican 2 "Catholic" Faith Community [not currently affiliated with the Diocese of Knoxville].

Why have we been banned?

For: PH, T, R, and O.

They consider this blog to contain Phariseeism (PH), Traditionalism (T), Republicanism (R), and Offensive (O, anti-womyn, anti-GLBTNA, etc.) Unfortunately, their site offers no criteria as to what constitutes offenses under each criteria, who makes the determinations, nor any appeal process, if any.

Regarding Phariseeism, one would think that requires someone to observe one's actions and deeds and compare them to one's words. Oh, no! They're watching me! (You're not paranoid if they really are out to get you.)

We suspect the charge of Traditionalism is either because we created some Latin and Greek language files for the e-Sword Bible software or that we quote from the early Christians. We do hold ourselves to the standard of presenting authentic Christian doctrine.

We find the charge of Republicanism interesting in that we volunteered for the Dean campaign in a very cold Iowa.

We suspect CAS tripped the Offensive criteria not because of anti-GLBTNA nor being anti-womyn, but because we routinely post against the Roman Catholic Woman Priest apostates. That doesn't make the site anti-womyn, just anti-womenpriest.

An anti-GLBTNA charge would be pretty amazing considering how many times we have commented on anti-gay posts reminding fellow Christian bloggers that GLBTNA are children of God with an immortal soul made in His image and that God has a perfect plan for their salvation. GLBTNA are most welcome to worship with us.

Any way, looking at the list, we're in good company and must be doing something right. Also banned are Amy Wellborn, Jimmy Akin, and the Cafeteria Is Closed. All favorite reads of ours.

I am beside myself that The Black Cordelias has not been banned.

We will have to try harder.

The fact that the SOV2 web site has both the words Catholic and Church in quotes indicates that they are not universal nor part of the Roman Catholic Church. The more I read their site the more I realize this group could not be further from Roman Catholic orthodoxy or basic rational thought. They did you a favor :-)

HS - the SOV2 website is PURE satire meant to hoist liberals on their own petard.

Read it for a longer duration, you will realize they are a merciless satire of the liberals and dissidents.

If I had to guess, the SOV2 authors are orthodox Catholics who were so sick of hearing all the nonsense, they decided to have some fun with it.

I rather enjoy the site. I am hoping I get banned soon!
