Should priests blog?

Nope. Not unless the blog doesn't allow comments and is strictly homilies, apologetics, or a collection of the priest's writings like this  or this. 
I've seen priest blogs that were too worldly, waspish to anyone who didn't slobber over them like a big happy dog, and well.... dangerous because they showed bad judgement, and did not show the priesthood in a respectable light. A priest blog should not be like a pop star writing to his fans.

So what to do, when a priest blogger is embarrassing? Treat him like Noah's good sons did when they saw him drunk and naked. Turn your eyes away, don't dwell on the disgrace and never revisit the episode again. There are at least three priestly blogs that I just won't read anymore.

St. John Vianney, pray for us. 

Father Solanus Casey, pray for us.

Fr. Walter Ciszek, pray for us. 

Fr. Augustus Tolton, pray for us.

Fr. Miguel Pro, pray for us. 

St. Pio, pray for us.
