That's better. The long post was beginning to vex me, all sitting there and un-replied to.

Dear Patrick,

I think it is time for a new post. Some fresh Patrick Coffin wit, if you will.

Hi Patrick:
Yesterday on Catholic Answers you and your guest (on the apparitions of Fatima) dismissed a caller's question about whether one should "follow an unapproved apparition." Your answer and that of your host was a smug, resounding "No!" This is curious because in your show you related how wonderful it must have been to witness the miracle of the sun, and your guest, an expert on Fatima, discussed the incredible miracle that took place there, how everyone was drenched and dirty with mud, etc., etc. but were all dried and made clean by the miracle. So my question is: how can you both praise those who were present at Fatima (before it was an approved apparition) and condemn those who follow unapproved apparitions? You can't have it both ways, Patrick. Either condemn the folks who were present at the miracle of the sun at Fatima or praise those who follow unapproved apparitions. Feel free to explain yourself to me in a private email.

Just so the folks know, it's been about six months and I never did hear from Patrick Coffin on my comment. I guess he agrees that he made a big mistake on that show. Patrick, your pre-formed conclusions on Medj. are off. I'd be happy to debate this with you on your website but I guess you would prefer not to debate me.

I find it very amusing your site does not allow comments. Hmm... good way to shut the other side up and be listened to
