"It is...Our will that Catholics should abstain from certain appellations which have recently been brought into use to distinguish one group of Catholics from another. They are to be avoided not only as 'profane novelties of words,' out of harmony with both truth and justice, but also because they give rise to great trouble and confusion among Catholics. Such is the nature of Catholicism that it does not admit of more or less, but must be held as a whole or as a whole rejected: 'This is the Catholic faith, which unless a man believe faithfully and firmly; he cannot be saved' (Athanasian Creed). There is no need of adding any qualifying terms to the profession of Catholicism: it is quite enough for each one to proclaim 'Christian is my name and Catholic my surname,' only let him endeavour to be in reality what he calls himself." -- Pope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum 24 (1914)

So this is a thing now. If you dare ask the Vatican's English Spokesperson for clarification, if you catch him misrepresenting facts, if you challenge his heterodoxy, you'll get blocked from his Twitter account.

Ask him why he uses National 'Catholic' Reporter as a source when they have been asked by their bishop to stop using the name Catholic and you'll get blocked. Ask him why he doesn't report on some news but obsesses on others, and you'll get blocked. Even if you do none of that but just follow some accounts he doesn't like and you'll get blocked.

It's funny how those who preach tolerance excessively are usually extremely intolerant. No, actually it's quite sad. Rev.Rosica also brings to mind a bully. Bullies can't stand not getting their way. The best way to deal with a bully is to punch him back - they aren't expecting that and usually run away, or in this case block you.

There's a support group on Facebook.

It seems by putting quotation marks around Faithful Catholics he's insinuating they aren't really. This from a priest who gushes over known dissidents like Gregory Baum.

I wonder if he thinks to bear false witness is a mortal sin? Maybe he should take his own advice and go to Confession (note: capital 'C'). 

Rev.Rosica is a celebrity priest for now but that day will eventually come to an end. When it does he'll be most remembered for his heretical positions: all religions are equal, Faith Alone guarantees Salvation, etc. One day he'll have to stand in front of Jesus and explain himself, unless he's already blocked God too.
