Yikes!  I would have done the same.

Thanks for your answer Katie.  I can agree wholeheartedly.  I would only hope that most folks wouldn't be too hasty in disengaging completely from something/someone without first letting the organization (or person) know what has happened and why.  I suppose a healthy dose of discernment and prayer is also needed when things go awry.  Thanks again!

I really like what you've written here Katie, and totally agree with you in regards to personal holiness.  We should all be taking a good, hard look at our reactions to legitimate criticisms and explore our motives behind those reactions.  

But I'm having trouble with this line of thought as it relates to Catholic organizations.  Sometimes (usually?) organizations are run by more than one person - boards of directors, presidents, vp's, etc.  How far does one go when supporting organizations?  When one/two people who work there make a bad decision, and the organization as a whole chooses not to throw them under the bus?  I suppose the question is highly subjective - what person, making what mistake, affecting how many people, etc., but I found your words harsh in respect to ceasing to support an apostolate that "did something bad".  Apostolates, communities, movements - they're almost all doing a bad thing here and there amongst the good they're doing. I think it's very rare that you find an organization that is completely free of any error or wrong in their history - or bad reaction to an error or wrong.  I'm just wondering where we draw the line.  

Stay informed
