Today, traveling around the Catholic blogosphere and on Facebook and Twitter is a link to the now defunct website  All of the posts, all of the audios and videos are gone as are the items that were for sale.   The “nuking” of the site also eliminated literally thousands of comments.  It is all replaced with this: Link

Christopher Ferrara: EWTN knew all along that Father Corapi was “damaged goods”.

I feel nothing but contempt, however, for EWTN’s calculated decision to make Corapi a star knowing full well that he was damaged goods. Worse, having created this fallen celebrity, EWTN then proceeded to cover his fall as a news item on its pretend network news show, The World Over, on which Arroyo plays the role […]

The concept originated with my father, Dan Sr., who postulated the thought to explain […]
