I had to think long and hard about this because it involves further exposing one of my children. And I have come to the conclusion that given Diana's singling out my daughter on her blog and the insinuation of an unethical connection between my daughter and the editorial staff of the Pacific Daily News, it is time to expose Diana before she acts similarly against other people's children.
However, she also dug into my daughter on Facebook.
- My daughter is not employed by the PDN. She was a freelance contributor to the Vibe, a sub-publication of the PDN by and for teenagers.
- Suggesting that my teen-aged daughter's involvement with the Vibe had some influence on the editorial decisions of the the Pacific Daily News is a pathetic attack on the editors and writers of the PDN, and a testament to the psychological sickness that is at the root of this whole ugly conflict.
- Bringing any child or any family member into this conflict who has not chosen to enter it on his or her own is an attack on an innocent bystander and is to be condemned.
Therefore, I hereby call on the members of the Neocatechumenal Way who sincerely want the rhetoric against the Way to cease, to challenge Diana to have the simple integrity to put his or her real name to her statements as I do. Hiding behind a pseudonym permits her to do the kind of garbage that is detailed above without consequence. Is it Christian to hide? Is that a credible witness to the real fruit of the Neocatechumenal Way? It's up to you. You know who Diana is. It is time to come out in the open. If not, then I will take her dragging my daughter into this as a personal affront to my family and the endangerment of my daughter.
