100% correct. I removed the original quote, which only inspired me to make this post, as I've planned it for a while, as it was unverifiable and not so easy to interpret.

Yes, if those who made such posts prayed with equal fervor, there would be no problem in the Church. Sadly, it is the Satanically inspired reaction to draw back and break away rather than draw closer and pray harder that is mostly seen.
