If Everyone Jumped off a Cliff, Would You?
How many times did my mother say that to me in response to a "But Mommmmmm, everyone else is doing it!"
I thought of this today when I noticed an emerging trend on some blogs that call themselves Catholic. Maybe folks are just getting the carbon out of their systems before the purifying season of Lent begins. But, knowing that there is no time like the present, why wait until next week to be on your best behavior?
Some of the blogs that I link to are going in the time-out chair for awhile. I think their authors are inherently good people who have unfortunately jumped on a bandwagon that sounds anything but charitable, let alone Catholic. I think I have already had too much to say about this subject, yet at the same time, I'm disappointed in myself for not speaking up sooner.
Sometimes, charity dictates taking an unpopular stance, particularly when it means that I, who may be living in a glass house, must pick up a stone. OK, maybe not a stone, but a pebble. Either way, that's it on this subject.
