CAF Disabled Registrations!

Long before they had a discussion forum, Catholic Answers had their apologetics site, as well as their tracts, other publications, speakers, and online store. I first learned about them in 2001 when I wasn't Catholic and a friend recommended them to me as a resource for any questions I might have. Four years or so later, when they got their forum going, I was very happy to join. It was good, at first, as were my experiences with their site and speakers.

When Pope Benedict was pope, I had no problems with how the moderators dealt with me. They left me alone. I followed the rules. I loved Pope Benedict, and either they did too or they thought it wise to suck up to him.  I did have problems with some of the members saying that homosexuality was the one sin the cross didn't cover, or that priests assisting illegal immigrants were 'ministers of hell' and the moderators taking too long to remove the posts. They left me alone though, so I was able to use CAF effectively for my own purposes. When Pope Francis became pope, however, the tone changed. I guess they were more interested in sucking up to the current pope than in heeding the words of the previous one, that "an 'adult' faith is not a faith that follows the trends of fashion and the latest novelty; a mature adult faith is deeply rooted in friendship with Christ. It is this friendship that opens us up to all that is good and gives us a criterion by which to distinguish the true from the false, and deceipt from truth."  Practically overnight, after Francis became pope, clear defense of Catholic orthodoxy against wicked clergy and religious was no longer welcome.  That's when I left.
