Having been kicked off of the National Catholic Register, it seems that Mark Shea and Simcha Fisher have no regrets or remorse for the behavior that got them ostracized in the first place.
In fact, watching Shea's unprofessional belligerence has been the most amusing of the two. He cannot take reality. He cannot take what he dishes out. He unfriends and bans people from his platforms. And now? His turn.
I check newadvent.org on occasion because it's one of the few websites I have easy access to. That is how I found these two articles. It seems that these two feel that their arrogance is somehow affirmed by this recent firing.
"And it’s made me even able to pray with some sincerity (and not merely gritted teeth of obedience) for the people who have been pouring out the wall of flaming hate at me. That’s just more brokenness. We’re all so pitiable."What Pope-Francis-styled "humility"! What virtue signaling this is!
"The one thing that we’re truly in control of is being open to God’s grace, and the way we become open is through prayer. I don’t waste time trying to game the system or peer into the future — or I try not to, especially where my children’s future and (eek!) my children’s free will is concerned. I tend my garden, I ask the saints for help, and I try to leave the details up to God."Where is the accountability? She makes herself sound like the unwitting victim of an incident she had no control over. As though she got caught up in some unfortunate circumstance, and that she had no bearing on anything that she did to herself.
What will bring these kinds of people to heel? Can nothing break through to these people to stop being so destructive?
That's neo-Catholics, for you.
Here's something from 2014 that Skojec wrote about these kinds of people.
