Hi hi :D
Well, absolutely bizarre situation. I am on a Catholic commitee of students that basically organizes everything Catholic in town (its a student town). There are 5 of us on the Comm, and our roles are different but we basically do the same stuff. Anyway I was voted on to the Comm after being asked to run, which I was glad about because I had issues with the Mass.
So anyway, a few months ago at a Liturgy meeting that I called I brought up my issues. People shot me down. (Note: issues aren't important here, discussed them in Liturgy section months back). So I gathered my resources (Encylcicals, GIRM, etc) and showed why and what I think needs changing. Everybody agreed. Except one person.
He sent me a rather vitriolic email. Basically, without judgement, he is poorly catechized. He asked me why I am so "ancient" and "addicted to Rome" and spoke about me kind of badly and questionned the writings of the Popes, but I just showed him the facts and explained our religion is ancient and Rome (Vatican, rather) is Rome for a reason, and Pope is Pope for a reason. Anyway I wasn't too affected I was just like well a slight disagreement whatever.
Now, someone on the Comm was telling me how this guy is depressed, off-ish and unwilling to continue. And I was like, well, shame, why. And he told me its because "He doesn't like you". I thought to myself, well, thats pretty pathetic. But I told this guy that if the dude has a problem he needs to speak to me. I am a pretty big guy and to be fair I can come off as, um, 'hardcore' and unapproachable and I am a 'mans man' in that I am upfront about things etc etc. From what I know, this guy who doesn't like me, his dad is a laicized Priest (which, I dunno, might add something).
So anyway. The Comm member wants me to have a "forum" with this guy who doesn't like me and include our Priest. I laughed and said thats absolutely ridiculous. I told him I have nothing against the guy, and I would be more than willing to chat if he just mans up and chats to me. But the "forum" (me, priest, guy who hates me) is just stupid, unecessary and dramatic. I said that if the guy doesn't like me then he needs to speak to me and its got nothing to do with anybody else. If its my views then he needs to read the GIRM, a few Papal writings, and the Catechism. I was told to "think about it" even after I said no.
So what should I do? Should I be the one and go to the guy who doesnt like me - since he seems to not want to. Should I do the "forum" thing? What should!
