thursday night thoughts

Mary Alexander at Against All Heresies has a post on something that has made me uneasy for a while now: lay people who set themselves up in their own "ministries". Mark Shea, Jimmy Akin, Karl Keating and Stephen Ray all hawk their books, tapes, and speaking engagements on their sites and "generously" share their views on Catholicism and the world. Some Catholics hang on to their utterances as if these guys were the pope. This is dangerous ground to tread on.

All these guys are self appointed experts who remind me way too much of Protestant ministers. Something just doesn't seem right.

I could not agree with you more, Dymphna. And yet those people have such control over Catholic thought nowadays....
