Mark Shea has been trending left for quite a while and now he is using the favorite tactic of the contemporary left in this country: race baiting.
…but it’s totally not about race or anything and if you notice that it is you are “playing the race card”. The Death Penalty: Because the Magisterium is incompetent to teach about faith and morals when American white conservative sacred cows are involved.
Have you no sense of decency left Mark? Of course, it has long been known around Saint Blogs that in the heat of controversy Mark Shea will use any stick to wield against those on the other side, no matter how dirty and unfair the stick is. Back in 2013 Shea offered a public apology for his bad behavior and I congratulated him on it. Go here to read my post. One aspect of apologies is amendment of behavior and, regrettably, since that apology Shea has gotten worse in his public behavior, and the above putrid insult by him of Catholics who hold to the teaching of the Church for almost 2000 years as racists, is beneath contempt and is about as low as one can go in American contemporary discourse.
For 33 years I have engaged in adversarial relationships every day of my professional life as an attorney. I have always tried to never use unfair arguments and I have always attempted to treat my adversaries with respect. Sometimes I have felt that this has put me at a slight disadvantage occasionally with attorneys who have a win at all costs mentality. However, my success record in litigation has been rather good, and I have the added bonus of being able to look at myself in the mirror when I shave. I think that what I have done as an attorney is a good rule to follow in blogging, whether other bloggers do so or not.
