Bear Banned From Church Militant for Being Bear
The Bear has been banned by Church Militant, and his comments removed. Their objection is that the Bear's name draws attention to his ephemeris. Why would they object to a Bear having an ephemeris? Oh, sure, it's fine for humans, but, apparently, not for Bears.
Their explanatory email said, in part, "You must do so as a human being (not as a bear) and without bringing attention to your blog, which your Disqus screen name does." (Emphasis added.)
Frankly, this is blatant discrimination against Bears everywhere. "Not as a bear." Their very words condemn them. Apparently, the Bear could post as a muskrat, and that would be fine. The Bear is certain Pope Francis would condemn this speciesism if he were aware of this outrage.
The Bear will not change his Disqus name to bow to Church Militant's ugly prejudice against Bears. Nobody else seems to mind it.
