The Candy Cult

I've been reading the blogs of ladies who leave comments on Candy's blog long enough to know that many of them seem to be drawn to her homemaking and motherhood posts. They put up with the Catholic bashing.

Their excuse goes something like:
"I dont agree with everything Candy says."
"I do not take Candy's word as gospel."

Then to sort of keep the peace and I guess to keep Candy blogging they ask those who find Candy's anti-Catholic bigotry offensive, "

" We are supposed to think about whatever is true, noble, just, good... not people's sinful rants."

"If you don't like it, don't read it."

What continues to amaze me is that if this blog was anti-black, anti-handicapped, anti-marriage, antisemetic, they would probably drop it like a hot potato. Likewise, if they found a Catholic blog that bashed fundamentalist Christin, KJV only Christians, they would have a big problem with that!

So essentially they are willing to turn a blind eye to the bigotry and injustice of the anti-Catholicism Candy propogates, just so they can get their homemaking tips served up on a doiley.

The truth is, there are bigger and better sites on the internet for this type of information. I can only surmise then that the reason they put up with the Catholic bashing, is they share it.

I was initially drawn to Candy's blog because of her homemaking and organization articles.

When I discovered her anti-Catholic bent, I was so shocked. I'd never heard anyone talk about Catholicism that way before. I was stunned at the number of people that just jumped on that bandwagon with her.

I guess I led a sheltered life up to that point...
