Invincible Ignorance

1793 If - on the contrary - the ignorance is invincible, or the moral subject is not responsible for his erroneous judgment, the evil committed by the person cannot be imputed to him. It remains no less an evil, a privation, a disorder. One must therefore work to correct the errors of moral conscience. Catechism Catholic Church.

I am not too upset about Candy's recent anti-Catholic screed. I think the paragraph above I think fits the situation to a T and basically tells us how to proceed.

1. Prayer. Pray for Candy. Pray for us. Pray for all of readers. Pray before you read either blog that you will have serenity and understanding. Pray for the bloggers that we can proceed in charity and wisdom.

2. We will work to finish the Vatican vs. God rebuttals this week before we tackle the latest attack - although we have tackled some of this in the past and you can find that in our clearly marked and open archives.

3. If you must comment here or on Candy's blog, take a deep breath, and count to 10 first. Write with clarity and charity. If you absolutely must vent, send me an e-mail. Can't promise I'll respond but it will be cathartic to type it out!

4. Register a complaint with the Homeschool Blog Awards people who link directly to Candy's site on their front page. People won't know that this is offensive unless we let them know.

5. Contact the Catholic League

My complaint was that this hate speech is linked directly to the front page of the Homeschool Blog Awards site. If there is enough interest, they may look into it.

6. Go about your life, enjoy your day! Ignorance and hate are nothing new. I just pray to have the strength, wisdom, judgment and grace of a Saint Thomas More with the love and compassion of Mother Theresa, and the tenacity of Catherine of Sienna!
