“Italy will be punished for her ambition in wanting to shake off the yoke of the Lord of Lords. And so she will be left to fight a war; blood will flow on all sides. Churches will be locked up or desecrated. Priests and religious orders will be hunted down, and made to die a cruel death. Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
“And then this Dominican showed up and started beating @JamesMartinSJ like a rented mule. The crowd went wild.” Catholic Vote Blogger Joshua Mercer
Just a figure of speech?
Catholic laymen are pissed at the men who take vows.
How long before the war of words morphs into violence against priests?
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A faithful Catholic lay apostolate was suspended by Twitter last week after Vatican adviser Father James Martin complained about a tweet that teasingly stated the pro-gay Jesuit had been bested in a theological debate on the social media platform. Father Martin claims that a Catholic Vote tweet urged violence against him and reported CV to Twitter, resulting in the group’s suspension. "Enough,” the Jesuit tweeted. “When you urge violence against me, even in a supposedly joking way, you cross the line. You’ve been reported to Twitter. Enough.” The now-deleted tweet to which he was replying said, “And then this Dominican showed up and started beating @JamesMartinSJ like a rented mule. The crowd went wild.” Father Martin did not respond to LifeSiteNews’ inquiry about his perception of the tweet or specifics of how additional reaction has played out.Catholic Vote confirmed for LifeSiteNews the group was suspended from Twitter for 12 hours as a result of the priest’s complaint. CV disputes Father Martin’s assertion that the tweet called for violence and says the high-profile priest was just trying to shut them down. “Any reasonable person would realize that the tweet in question was a figure of speech,” CV communications director Joshua Mercer told LifeSiteNews. “If someone were to say he totally burned him, should we call the fire department?” “To suggest that our tweet was an incitement to violence is total garbage and can't be taken seriously,” Mercer said. “That Fr. Jim Martin called on Twitter to suspend our account over a figure of speech suggests that he's not really interested in building bridges, but in shutting people down.” Source

How long before the Catholic Laity turn threatening words into violence against Clergy?
Remember the Priests and Religious are the ones that take vows
You Lay only take one vow of Marriage - and even that vow can be made void for $700 bucks.
I do remember Rad Trad Fr. Z freaking out about threatening emails (that no one saw) - but I guess according to the lot of you Fr. Z has a right to complain - but a Jesuit doesn't have a right to complain even though the threat was made public on social media?
The lot of you are dense fools..
