Deal Hudson Asks: "Can Charity Prevail on the Internet?"

At InsideCatholic.

See also Catholic Online: "Editorial: Political Debate between Catholic Christians". Also here, here, here, and here.

Also see (1) Kyle R. Cupp's posts about creating a "hermeneutic of hospitality", including this one and this one; (2) this one and this one by Darwin Catholic; (3) this one, this one, and this one by Dale Price; and (4) this one by Christopher Blosser.

Don't see any posts engaging in ad hominem personal attacks, detraction, calumny, tu quoque argumentation, or your general run-of-the-mill "hyperbolic asshattery".

I acknowledge falling short in failing to engage in charitable dialogue and commentary on many occasions.

What seperates you from those whom we won't mention is that you're humble enough, charitable enough, and honest enough to admit that at times you may have been uncharitable towards others.

THAT is what seperates those who know their faith from those that actually practice their faith.

If anyone throws your past misdeeds at your less than charity, that is also an indicator of the charitableness of that person throwing that accusation, ie, CINO.

We all make mistakes, as you know (and I think I'm preaching to the choir) but if we are sincere and contrite in our penance, then it should become a non-issue.

It's like when a Henry Karlson (forgive me, but it could have been someone else) constantly brings up Deal Hudson's past history in order to win debating points or just to be plain mean.

That is being uncharitable, unforgiving, and ultimatley unChristian, ie, CINO.
