I had to chuckle. First, note the opening sentence. That made me laugh out loud. "Similar and related authoritarian ideological dynamic." I couldn't help remembering this post of mine from a few weeks ago. That's Sam trying to make what he's about to say appear academic. You know, scholarly. That way some might think 'Gee, some academic guy with a degree is saying this, so it must be true.'
Anyway, the rest of it is just the typical Leftwing 'ARCs are tunneling under our homes' hysteria. EWTN, which has replaced the KKK in the mind of many leftwing Catholics, is in the crosshairs. Word on Fire, the once beloved Bishop Baron's pet project, is also lumped together in the line of fire.
Why? Apparently neither outlet presents Pope Francis's teachings. Because the pope's teachings - ba, ba, bam! - threaten the unclean group. Meanwhile, Word on Fire attacks any who present the pope's teachings? I know EWTN has become pretty vocal in its criticisms of Pope Francis and his die hard supporters. I was unaware of Word on Fire doing the same.
Unless, of course, Sam is invoking the classic 'To disagree with a liberal is to hate, attack, threaten, and on and on' tactic. I'll have to look into WoF's blistering attacks aimed at those presenting Pope Francis's teachings.
I just had to chuckle at his calling them cowards, all the way from the safety and security of his keyboard. What would be swell would be for Sam to meet on a live interview with Bishop Baron and make the same claim to his face in the exact same manner that he has done here. That, my friends, is an interview I would definitely watch.
