Rage Spiral

Got into an argument with a supposed Catholic on Twitter.

I say supposed because this woman supported every Leftist meme you can think of, including abortion.  Anyone who claims to be Catholic or pro-abortion is lying about one side or the other.  You cannot be both Catholic, meaning you follow the Catechism of the Church, and pro-abortion.  They contradict each other.  They are mutually exclusive.

I have no doubt that in the Novus Ordo Catholic Church, there are many, many people who believe they can hold both views.  They are wrong, and they have never honestly looked at Church doctrine, or what they claim to profess.

In any case, I pointed out to this woman that you can be one or the other, but you cannot be both.  The result was something that I can only call a rage spiral, especially as she tried to hit me with SJW rhetoric, and I didn't back down.  I kept pointing out that claiming to be both Catholic and pro-abortion makes you a hypocrite for either one side or the other.

At that point, the woman called her friends into her little rage spiral, and they threw one massive, gigantic temper tantrum online.  However, you can look up a person's bio on Twitter, and I noticed one thing.

Not one single friend of hers joining in her rage spiral against me claimed to be Catholic.  I saw atheist, agnostic, anti-theists and one Jew.  But not one Catholic.

You surround yourself with people whom you agree with.  This woman apparently finds more agreement with people diametrically opposed to her faith, who encourage her to stray away from her faith and lead her down a path away from everything she claims to profess.

And when someone points it out, they all rage.

It's much like what drug addicts do when one of them tries to get clean.  You won't find much support for sobriety in a shooting gallery.

In any case, this is the last amount of energy I'm going to expend on her.  She's not worth anything more than that.

She probably lied about being Catholic. Ask her where and when she was Confirmed.

"Pro-abortion" types usually vilify Catholics. They'll say without reflection that "you only believe that" -- i.e., that abortion is morally wrong -- "because of your religion." They have the cart pulling the horse. By contrapositive, one who endorses abortion has disqualified himself from any claim to Catholicism, no matter how loud his protests to the contrary.

They actually screamed that I was "pro-birth" instead of "pro-life". Many of them denied that an unborn child was a baby at all. And they all supported the supposed Catholic in her pro-abortion views. All I could do was chuckle and shake my head.

Rivrdog - I don't even know if she knew what the Catechism IS, much less what it contains.
