Andrew Sullivan announces that he's going to stop blogging. I first discovered his blog back when it was the white on navy background, but didn't start following him regularly until the death of St. John Paul II and the election of Benedict XVI. I was received into the Church the year JPII died (perhaps I'm the one who pushed him over the edge?) Sullivan quickly became my go to source for trendy liberal thinking. A good rule of thumb: when white smoke emerges from the Sistine Chapel's chimney, we know we have a pope. When white smoke emerges from Sullivan's ears, we know the new pope is Catholic.
Sullivan self-identifies as a conservative but almost his entire corpus of blogging was devoted to the dissemination and further spread of liberalism, particularly the cause of sodomite "marriage." He invented the swear word "Christianist" which essentially translates to, "Christians with whom Andrew Sullivan disagrees." Starting in 2008, he had a bizarre obsession with Sarah Palin's son Trig. To his credit, he lacks the tyrannical impulses of Social Justice Warriors in whose crosshairs he's occasionally found himself.
Enjoy your time off Andrew. I pray you repent of your lifetime of sodomy and public dissent before you go on to your eternal reward.
