Pray Tell’s editorial committee had a great meeting this week. Interesting questions like these came up. Why do we (and similar blogs) get more comments from conservatives and hardcore traditionalists than from moderates or progressives or liberals? Is all the energy and vitality today on the right? Are the “liberals dying or hiding,” as the NCReporter recently asked? Or are all the centrists and leftists too busy to post because they have jobs and are occupied in actual ministry? Why is there so much anger and lack of respect in comments from the right, compared to the comments from the other side? What does all of this say about the Church today, and/or about the web today?
Our revised comment policy is here. We welcome your comments on this post. And we can’t wait to see just who comments!
