Catholic Stand Comment Policy
“If you can’t play nice, we do not owe you an explanation.”
However, in the best interest of promoting civility, we will clarity our policy here.
Catholic Stand insists on a civil and respectful dialogue on our website and social media platforms. From politics to liturgy, our global Catholic audience is 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.
In order to maintain an open but still welcoming forum for debate, we ask that visitors regulate themselves by these three simple rules.
Be 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.
Remain on topic: Editors may determine when a conversation has strayed too far from the original post.
Be brief: Make your point concisely on our site. Don’t preach. Don’t lecture. Simply state your position.
Comments will not be removed simply because they express opinions in disagreement with the Catholic Stand or the Catholic Church. However, comments that will be deleted include those that contain:
– Vulgar language
– Personal attacks/inflammatory remarks against a person or group; including the author and the Pope
– Content/comments off topic
– Links to sites that contain offensive material or attack a person
– Promotion of services, products, political organizations/agendas
– Information that is factually incorrect
We will not offer commentary to our reasons for deleting.
Comments left by others on this website do not necessarily reflect the views of the Catholic Stand or the Catholic Church.
