I just got this in an email from a friend and wondered if anyone has been to this site or has any comments about it.
Danboro, PA - March 28, 2007 - Pewsitter.com, a unique recently launched Catholic web site combines the concept of a news aggregator site, like DrudgeReport.com with that of a user-driven content site, like Yahoo’s You Witness News web site, to give the lay Catholic faithful a powerful, new voice within the Church.
Pewsitter represents a new paradigm within the Church. It provides a mouthpiece for faithful Catholics to report news of positive developments as well as abuses within their local parishes and communities. Once submitted and verified, Pewsitter will promulgate this information to the universal Church, with the objective of bringing about positive change within the Church and the culture at large
“The concept behind the site is to enlist an army of “pewsitters” to be the eyes and ears for this new site”, stated Pewsitter’s founder, James Todd. “For far too long, faithful Catholics have witnessed abuse after abuse within the Church and have been powerless to do anything about it. No more! By submitting newsworthy items to Pewsitter, the laity can help shape and influence the Church and be a powerful force for positive change.”
Pewsitter’s initial focus will be national and international news on its home page. The mid term objective is it to feature the Catholic news of the day within each of the 189 Catholic dioceses throughout the U.S. Interested volunteers should contact Pewsitter about assisting with this endeavor.
