I can respect Voris not wishing to critique the Pope, but attacking these men was despicable, just as despicable as his constant bashing of Fr. Robert Barron.

Well! I get to agree with Austenbosten twice in two days! I'm feeling positively chummy with him now! :P  Seriously, while I lament the use of the word "despicable" since it's so strong, I do think attacking those guys was not a good or nice move.

If this is the case, it would seem Mr. Voris has not so much regard for truth.  At times.

Again, I wouldn't say that Mr. Voris "has not so much regard tor the truth" even "at times." But I do think that his going after Verecchio, et. al., is very uncool.  Like Austenbosten, I can totally understand Mr. Voris's decision to not want to talk about the Holy Father himself -- and I don't like disrespect shown toward the Holy Father anywhere, "disprespectful" criticism being totally different from respectful criticism or simply respectfully expressing confusion about or respectfully lamenting something he might do or say.  But to go after folks who do decide to "go there" -- assuming they're doing so with respect, with humility, while giving the Holy Father the benefit of the doubt whenever possible, while not impugning motives, etc.  -- me no likey.

I like what Mr. Voris does, as far as he goes, and think his apostolate is a very needed one. I wish he hadn't done what he did with regard to the trads he went after. It's sad to me.

I hope folks here don't "take sides" and decide to "shun" one group or the other, or to operate with the gang-banging mentality of "he's one of THEM" or "they're some of THOSE." There's room for Mr. Voris's work and Verecchio's work and and Matt's work and and and... There's room enough for all of us -- even if some of us don't think there is and might cut people off.
