If you recall, I commented on a Twitter post of Sam where he blasted EWTN, Word on Fire, and other Catholic outlets. He asserted that they avoid discussing the teachings of Pope Francis because they're cowards intimidated by everyone's favorite boogeymen, Republican conservatives.
OK. I poked fun at how he framed it, and mentioned that it sniffed of the old liberal definition of diversity (that is, anyone right of center is a fascist ready to storm the walls with pitchforks and torches). Something I've listened to tolerant and open minded liberals claims for decades.
Anyhoo, Sam visited the comments section to take issue. Initially his focus was on setting the record straight about his particular job title and educational position. Fair enough. A couple of us, however, tried to get Sam to speak to the subject of the post itself. Sam insisted I had taken the Twitter post out of context from a thread of Twitter posts on the subject. He also said this existed within the framework of larger conversations he has had about the issue.
Despite attempts to get him to comment or provide links to the greater conversation, he didn't make further comments or provide links. So I did my best to find what I could to set the record straight.
I was unable to find any blog posts or articles by Sam that seemed to touch on the subject, though he might have accounts I don't know about or can't access. With some help I was able to piece together the larger Twitter thread which contained the post I referenced (remember, I personally don't have Twitter, but usually get images of Twitter posts from other sources). Here is what I found, my comments below:
