CatholicReview insists on a civil and respectful dialogue on our website and social media platforms. From politics to liturgy, American Catholics are divided on many issues, but we aim to create space online where all perspectives are welcome. It is our hope that all visitors contribute their views and that no one person or group dominates the conversation.
Should the editors determine that a comment violates these rules, the comment will be deleted. All comments on CatholicReview and our social media platforms should be:
1. Charitable: Personal attacks on writers, public figures/the subject of a story, and fellow commenters will not be tolerated. This includes doubting somebody's faith.
2. On topic: Editors may determine when a conversation has strayed too far from the original post.
3. Brief: Make your point concisely on our site.
Comments will not be removed simply because they express opinions in disagreement with the Catholic Review or the Archdiocese of Baltimore. However, comments that may be deleted include those that contain:
- Vulgar language
- Personal attacks/inflammatory remarks against a person or group
- Content/comments that are off topic
- Links to sites that contain offensive material or attack a person
- Links to sites that are not legitimate news sites
- Promotion of services, products, fundraising, or political organizations or agendas
- Information that is factually incorrect
Comments left by others on this page do not necessarily reflect the views of the Catholic Review or archbalt.org
