Something that has been bothering lately in the Catholic blogosphere is the tendency to tip-toe around liberal dissenters; walking on eggshells lest their fragile feelings are bruised or feel the slightest discomfort. We must be pastoral and not make any sudden movements as if they were skittish deer in the woods. People freak out when someone states Catholic doctrine on sexuality like what happened at that high school. A Bishop shut down (but not really) a deacon's blog because it called out open dissenters and therefore lacked "charity". Or something. However, any Traditional minded Catholics get a swift and severe smack-down if there is even a tiny speck of disagreement (see Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate). It's absolute insanity.
