I wonder if the Pope will ever meet with the insane Trad bloggers?
Maybe there should be a no holds bar round table discussion with some the top Catholic bloggers?
You know....like...the insane ones: Mundabor, Ann Barnhardt, Stevie Skojec, Dave Domet, Louie Verrecchio, Hillary White, Christopher Ferrara..etc...on the one side, pitted against the righteous Catholic bloggers on the other side: Mark Shea, Fr. Longenecker, Mark Armstrong....etc..
