A decade and a half ago, the late Thomas Herron was quick to figure out that these tools were acting as a Stoßtrupp pushing an agenda within the Church with backing coming from Neo-Conservative groups often outside the Church. Now, their usefulness has been served. Some soldier on, others have become disillusioned, and a few like Mark Shea and Simcha Fisher have become frustrated and bitter leftists.
Our present hindsight makes this column (note the link has been removed but interested readers can find it themselves by going to the duckduckgo dot com website and entering culturewars + double life in the search field) by Thomas Herron all the more enjoyable to read about a pathetic group who lost sight of what the Church's mission really is by insisting on leaving their own little mark of vanity.

Update: We suspect Welborn ordered a hit on this blog:
Blogger has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that certain content in your blog is alleged to infringe upon the copyrights of others. As a result, we have reset the post(s) to "draft" status. (If we did not do so, we would be subject to a claim of copyright infringement, regardless of its merits. The URL(s) of the allegedly infringing post(s) may be found at the end of this message.) This means your post - and any images, links or other content - is not gone. You may edit the post to remove the offending content and republish, at which point the post in question will be visible to your readers again.
A bit of background: the DMCA is a United States copyright law that provides guidelines for online service provider liability in case of copyright infringement. If you believe you have the rights to post the content at issue here, you can file a counter-claim. In order to file a counter-claim, please see https://support.google.com/leg
The notice that we received, with any personally identifying information removed, will be posted online by a service called Lumen at https://www.lumendatabase.org. We do this in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). You can search for the DMCA notice associated with the removal of your content by going to the Lumen page, and entering in the URL of the blog post that was removed.
If it is brought to our attention that you have republished the post without removing the content/link in question, then we will delete your post and count it as a violation on your account. Repeated violations to our Terms of Service may result in further remedial action taken against your Blogger account including deleting your blog and/or terminating your account. DMCA notices concerning content on your blog may also result in action taken against any associated AdSense accounts. If you have legal questions about this notification, you should retain your own legal counsel.
