Mark Shea fired at National Catholic Register

by Steve Ray on August 22, 2016

UPDATE:

Posting link @ Mark Shea because Mark is a friend: this opinion closely reflects mine: http://heroicvirtuecreations.com/2016/08/21/mark-shea-and-catholic-tribalism/

Original Post: The news is that Mark Shea has been removed from National Catholic Register. I have not seen the statement by NCR and if anyone finds it, please let me know.

Official Statement: The Register is no longer publishing blogs or commentaries submitted by Mark Shea. Mark’s writings at the NCRegister.com or published in our print edition were within our editorial guidelines. However, his writings and engagement on other forums were irreconcilable with our editorial vision or standards of charitable discussion.
