  • Samuel Loeman of a very small forum, has had another highly emotional, subjective temper tantrum. I have not ever met a woman who is so emotional and subjective as him. He has moments of inspiration like his recent article but loses all credibility when he shuts down his website for the n'th time. It all seems to be over the 'community' his daughter joined and the eccentric 'Sister' Irene who has reinvented herself so many times that nobody can keep up. Just come over here and ask around Ireland as to what people and priests think of her. She has been renowned for many years. Even within the last year or so, she built her 'convent' without planning permission ?  

    Be honest, Sam, you criticize His Excellency, Bishop Williamson essentially because he will not support 'Sister' Irene but who in their right mind would ? Have you ever  met a bishop who would approve a new community immediately, unless he were the founder of it?!!! Stop living in dreamland. 

    Perhaps she will reinvent herself again in a few years as a Franciscan or Dominican ?

  • He never reads this forum, if he did, he would not have his own forum. If he does read this forum yet still has his own, then yes, he has issues.

  • What a hothead!  

    He is very smart and knows his faith well, and he has as lot of skill with websites. But he needs to learn to moderate his behavior and emotions. "Slow and steady wins the race."

    Here is his latest meltdown:


    Quote
    It has been a long time coming, but I have finally decided to close down this website, at least for a while.
    Based on bishop Williamson's long history of shunning the Carmelite Sisters in Ireland, on his persistent refusal to speak to them and give them a fair chance, on his refusal to take any notice of a petition signed by 139 Catholics, on his recent request to be disassociated from the NZ priory, and on a regular occurrence of questionable EC's, I no longer trust that he is truly committed to work for the good of the Church and for the Christianization of society.
    I no longer wish to support and defend either the bishop I no longer trust or the (dis)organization that takes their marching orders from him. I believe that through Tradidi I have given the bishop too much credit for too long, and I think it is time to reconsider.
    But on the other hand, I do not wish to give up the fight for the Faith and to slide into apathy. I don't want to end up like the bad servant who went to burry his one and only talent, and I don't want to turn my back on those Catholics who may benefit from the little I have been able to do.
    So, I will take some time out to consider my options. If anyone wants to privately advise, reprove, entreat, correct or ridicule me, I can be contacted by email. If anyone wants to do so in public, there are a few forums that will be happy with the extra traffic it may generate for them.

    1. Did Samuel even have a forum lately? I thought his latest website was just a website with no discussion board component. He shut down ABL3.0 ages ago.

    2. Sorry, Samuel, but I haven't noticed any traffic increase. Maybe you're just not that important? Or maybe CI already has so much traffic that a few extra people coming here to talk about Samuel doesn't even make a dent?

    Does a horse notice when a fly lands on him? I doubt it.

    Well said.

    +Williamson was right to not support this unstable "sister".

    It's sad to see someone with such talent, education, potential, and virtue BLINDED by personal concerns. It's actually scary, to be honest. If you could subtract this personal blindness, Samuel and I have a lot in common. He seems more unstable and impulsive than I, but other than that we were both in a (roughly) similar place spiritually, say 4 years ago. We are both family men. Both well-educated and fervent in the Faith, both willing to make sacrifices to keep the Faith in its purity, both trying to use our website talents to help the Faithful remnant. Both philosophers. The list goes on.

    Talk about an Achilles' Heel! In this case, Samuel is obsessed with these sisters because his daughter wants to attend their convent. He is so personally biased and invested in this, it should be obvious to all.

    I think it's scary because I have to ask myself: Am I one personal, emotional situation away from losing it all? I don't have any grown kids yet. What if someday one of them wants to pursue a vocation and Bp. Zendejas doesn't help them enough? Am I going to end up like Samuel? I'll have to pray and trust in God that I won't. I will also have to be on my guard and learn from Samuel's mistake here.

    But for now, everyone should take Samuel's words about +Williamson with a huge grain of salt -- in fact, I would recommend a 50 lb salt lick.
