He urged his organization called The Network of Spiritual Progressives to support a campaign against the forces of reaction within the Catholic Church. “We are not anti-Catholic,”

Many Jesuits who are faithful to the “true teachings of Jesus” would join Lerner’s Network but for the threat of persecution, he opined.

Mr. Fromm,

Please be so kind as to define what you mean by 'bad words'

Well let me know when you are interested in providing a clearer definition, until then; I'll simply conclude that you are not interested in hearing what I have to say on your blog; and that's fine. Until then enjoy your emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical attachment to your four little word that you appear to value more than the seven letter word HONESTY.
