One of the things that really frustrates me is that whenever there is a Catholic story in the internet news (yahoo, Huffington Post, you name it) the comment sections are filled with anonymous posters who spew anti-Catholic venom. I have tried to engage them in intelligent back-and-forth, but it inevitably breaks down to uncivil responses. The anti-Catholic sentiment probably runs 5 to 1 over those who can or will defend the faith.
Is it a waste of time trying to discuss any serious matter on the faith with these people?
It is very discouraging, but drives me crazy to see these lies go unchallenged, and see so many “thumbs-up” on what they say.
