Kneeling Catholic's comment which was removed from Father Alexander Lucie-Smith's Catholic Herald Article

 Friends!  I am not paranoid!  Well, maybe I am!  You can read Father's article at their site.  He decries the shrillness of Catholic apologists who do not know when to keep their mouths shut, basically....btw, Father ALS, you may comment here, I will not censor you!

Catholicism is essentially a calm faith and has no need of shrill defenders

Angry polemics usually give the impression that the Faith we hold rests on shaky foundations

Kneeling Catholic>>>>>>>>

Father, respectfully, I must disagree with you if you are saying that 'calmness' is the overriding characterisic of our Faith. just a couple of examples...St. John the Baptist doesn't strike me as being calm, nor does Our Lord impress me that way. Being from England you are familiar with star of English martyrs, St. Edmond Campion. He certainly had a calm demeanor--but he was burning up inside and considered it his duty to instruct the ignorant and admonish sinners even if it offended them.....from Campion's famous 'brag'......

>>>>I am to sue most humbly and instantly for combat with all and every of them, and the most principal that may be found: protesting that in this trial the better furnished they come, the better welcome they shall be<<<<
