Scott Noto on Intolerable Dialogue at an Inclusive Blog

Last summer, the National Catholic Reporter, the self-described “independent Catholic weekly,” followed the lead of other news sources and launched its own blog called the NCR Conversation Café. The Café boasts that it “differs from formal news reporting, which the NCR newsweekly continues to offer subscribers, in that it provides a platform for actual dialogue.”

“Telcontar” is a young man of 23 years of age, currently discerning whether he has a call to the priesthood. Last August, he signed up to join the NCR Café. He contributed to many discussions, including two worth describing: one about the “ordination” of twelve women on a riverboat near Pittsburgh, and another titled “What do we need to believe to be a Roman Catholic?”
