A Response to Michael Voris' assault against Traditional Catholic Writers

A Response to Michael Voris' assault against Traditional Catholic Writers

Thank you Mr. Louie Verrecchio for your common-sense response to a remarkably silly and confused attack against us by Michael Voris' Church Militant TV.

Here is what Voris' ChurchMilitantTV said about us, as part of a larger
"It is our judgment that most Catholics should not read articles and essays such as those above by Christopher A. Ferrara and John Vennari, nor similarly themed articles and essays available elsewhere. We also believe that such articles and essays should not be published anywhere for public consumption but, rather, reserved for those capable of reading such without risk of damaging their faith in the Church and the Vicar of Christ. We make these recommendations for the same reasons that we discourage people from visiting sedevacantist and pornography web sites: they are potential occasions of sin…"

Mr. Verrecchio produced this video as a response:

Below is how Mr. Verrecchio prefaced the video:

The Gore-Tex

Well… it is now undeniable: Michael Voris is all-in with the manifesto. Damn shame too. The guy screwed up. It happens. I’m pretty sure I did that once too. Maybe even twice.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not the least bit pleased about this rift between Voris and people like John Vennari, Christopher Ferrara and Michael Matt. Not only do I respect these men a great deal, I’m out here doing the same kinds of things; namely, defending our Catholic faith against all comers, even the occasionally naked pope. A stone thrown at them hits me as well.

At the end of the day, we’re still Catholics. That makes us family. In other words, it ain’t over ’til it’s over; so with that in mind I’m offering a bit of fraternal correction.
