The Beggars All Insultapalooza Post
"Swan is an obsessive-compulsive pest situated somewhere on the autistic spectrum whose mania is to the search the Internet for poorly understood religious odds and ends that, he imagines, bolster his idiosyncratic Fundamentalist delusions. He periodically does data dumps on his blog. No one needs Swan. We all have search engines of our own."
"I realize that you write for James White, and must at all times keep the name of Lord Luther, the Second Coming of Christ, out of the mud - more like out of toilet but we won't quibble ..."
"James Swine dumped me overboard last week end."
"Swanny, Why not do a write up on Luther and his obsession with poop? I will be lurking to see how you explain it. Art Sippo does a masterful job of revealing Luther's sick mind in his video, "Martin Luther and the death of Charity". PS, get a wife or girlfriend. A prissy, fuddy duddy, single man and his cat looks bad."
"James Swan Bolsters His Reputation as a Dense Amateur Church Historian and Hypocritical Nitpicker Yet Again."
"[Luther] was a nasty pig of a man. Your infatuation with Luther goes beyond any Lutheran minister I have ever known."
"Last week it was some guy named Shoebat. Before that Devin Rose. now this piece of nothingness. You split hairs over an i not being dotted or a T crossed. Pathetic. Your nonstop white washing of Luther and insistence on Catholics quoting only primary sources is so corny."
"What a waste of a life. Why not read up on something that will save your soul?"
"So let Swan play his games and spend his time on trifles and stupid stuff."
"But a raving anti-Catholic like Swan has no such interest in unity and finding common ground. He can''t even figure out that Catholics are fellow Christians."
"I think this guy is too filled with church hate. Let him act crazy to the point he gets himself committed to an asylum."
"I just meant let him be. He's clearly not open to seeking the full truth of the Catholic Church in his state, so why not go Biblical and shake the dust off our sandals and move on and let him stew and he'll behave how he wants within reason and civil/criminal law"
"Occasionally I expose him for what he is: an inveterate liar when it comes to Catholicism and Catholic apologists"
"I still interact with him and his on occasion because the misrepresentations of what the Church teaches are read by others and cause real spiritual harm to those who do not yet have the acuity and theological formation to test the accuracy of their assertions against our faith. The Church is a bulwark against Satan only if her soldiers are willing to man the walls and defend it."
"Since being 'anonymous' is a bad thing in your estimation, let's be sure that everyone knows that you, TertiumQuid, are James Swan, host of the Beggars All blog - one of the...um...less Catholic-friendly sites on the web. In your recent posting there, you mention that you have been banned from posting on Catholic websites by Patrick Madrid and the Coming Home Network in the past (you probably consider that a badge of honor), but now you have decided to discontinue the comments on your blog. Does that account for your re-appearance here? Are you looking for some folks to talk with now that you are no longer chatting with folks on your own blog?"
"I'm sure he is looking to convert to Catholicism soon and is seeking answers on CAF. Some of our best witnesses to the Faith are converts that were "once upon a time" not so Catholic friendly."
... and Rome's support keeps coming in:
"James, you must be in hog heaven (swine heaven) with all these sycophants telling you how great you are. 100% positive feedback. How do you manage to get such high ratings? One would get the impression you screen out non worshipers."
" Swan does not regard us as Christians, and regularly lies about us personally and about our belief system. That calls for some necessary firmness and harshness in reply (this is the background), just as Jesus did with the Pharisees and Paul did with various errors and those who promulgated them, and with liars and those with wild tongues."
