What Got My Ass Kicked Off of CatholicMatch.Com

To be more accurate, what effectively got me kicked off: writing "" in response to an objectively racist, i.e., anti-semitic, comment made by another member of the site named, you guessed it, Bob. The administration of Catholic Match said my comment, which was written in the politics discussion forum on the site, was a personal attack. Unbelievable.

Well, at least they've agreed to give me a pro rated refund of the money I paid for membership.

Clarification: Man, I'm having a bad choice of words day. I literally was not kicked off of Catholic Match. I chose, instead, to terminate my membership, at Catholic Match's "invitation," because the administration of Catholic Match restricted my posting privileges on its discussion forums for the above state reason.

Update (8/20/07) I'm back on CM again with full privileges after an apology from the administration.

I Don't See Nothin'

For about five months now, I've been commuting from Orange County to San Bernardino County for a new job. So I figured since tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation, and I have to be all the way out in the Inland Empire for work, I'd go to a parish near my office for Mass. Not being familiar with the area, I naturally went to the website for the San Bernardino Diocese. Try as I might, however, I can't find any mention on the site of tomorrow being the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Therefore, I have no idea if the local parishes are going to be on their Holy Day Mass schedule. Rather than take a chance, I'm just going to go to the morning Mass at Holy Family Cathedral in Orange County, and arrive about a half hour later for work.
