Tony Spence, director and editor-in-chief of Catholic News Service, a sinecure he's held since 2004, resigned after he was asked to step down by USCCB's general secretary.
In recent days Spence's leadership had been called into question by the Lepanto Institute, Catholic Family News and Lifesite News, according to the other fake Catholic news service, NCR. The business drone was clearly unhinged by the recent media agitprop campaign against states refusing to bow to pressure, by allowing male sexual deviants to use women's restroom. It's quite a hill to die on. He demonstrated his own deviance from Catholic teaching and had posted about the "controversial" religious freedom bills in North Carolina and Georgia. Some sane Catholics abovmwntiond accused Spence of "promoting the LGBT agenda." Doh!
Evil, fans of sodomy using the name Catholoc wailed ineffectually: "The far right blogsphere and their troops started coming after me again and it was too much for the USCCB," Spence toldNCR in an interview Thursday.
There was no outcry from Patheos bloggers. Of course, the Patheos bloggers completely missed this one, Mark Shea and Father Longenecker were too busy trying to blame faithful Catholics for the Church's problems, and attacking Lepanto Institute as judgmental, divisive, mean and contentious.
