Yahoo Watch: Father Zuhlsdorf's Fans

Father Zuhlsdorf, who writes for the Wanderer (enough said) and manages a blog called "What Does The Prayer Really Say," is, like all of us bloggers, not responsible for the comments of those who react to his columns. But, if you want to get a flavor of how whacked out some conservative Catholics are, check out the comments on his post about Archbishop Donald Wuerl being named the American delegate to oversee the implementation of Anglicanorum coetibus. My favorite: "He’s disgraceful, and this is not a good move. He’s hostile to tradition, and he’ll be hostile to traditional Anglicans." How, exactly, is Archbishop Wuerl "hostile" to tradition? This is the epitmoe of yahoodom.
