Thanks for being so kind as to give my piece a careful reading and to drop me the link to your thoughts. We both seem to agree that the internet is a source of both some good things and some bad things, although we draw different conclusions about how we suspect the scale will ultimately balance.
In the end you may well be right--John Paul the Great was on your side, so you're certainly in good company with your optimism. Only time will tell.
It does sadden me, however, to be accused by you of not knowing anything about the blog world. I believe that if you did a little research on me you'd see that I do have some experience in these matters. Just because we disagree doesn't mean that one of us is arguing in bad faith.
Best, Jonathan Last
Dear Mr. Last,
Thank you for your courteous reply.
Having done some research, I find that you do have some experience - indeed, your own blog - and so I willingly withdraw any and all imputation that you do not.
However, I also can lay claim to some experience, particularly in the area of "Godbloggers", and I think a reader of your article who did not have such experience would come away with, at best, a very incomplete idea of what we (if I may presume to include myself among them) are like and what we do.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
Please pray for the souls in Purgatory
May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace.
