I and a friend had a colloquy about Dreher. Basically, my attitude is, “If they don’t like our Church, why are they in it?” All of my friends in Russia are lefties… mostly, working-class commies who go to Church. The Party and Church made up way back in the 90s… Dreher won’t admit that, but only God can change Dreher’s mind… we can’t. He’s not alone, sadly enough. I’m surprised he hasn’t joined forces with that turd Matthew Heimbach. However, let him be. He’s lost in irrelevance, as far as Church matters go. As long as he posts no heresy, we should ignore him and his rants from now on. He shot his credibility during the brouhaha over Paffhausen’s “resignation”. If you want to talk about Paffso’s removal, if the Centre were behind him, he’d still be Metropolitan, and he isn’t. Note how they give Mollard things that they never gave Paffso.
There comes a time when you simply have to leave ranters be and let them maunder on. We all do have better things to do with our God-given time… if it comes down to our Holy Patriarch or Rod Dreher, there’s no contest. Leave him be… no good will come of any intervention or reply. It’s time to let this one go… it’s in God’s hands now.
