It wasn't uncharitable, it is simply that they would probably consider it so in the context of that thread.
Probably so, that and there isn't the same moderator in all threads which makes a difference. Each has their own idiosyncrasies. So its often not always easy to know what to expect. What one does the other may not. Where one doesn't respond another could suspend. I find that in any forum.
The thing is, they have to keep the Latins and the Byzantines separate on their own forum so they won't offend each other with the vast disparity that exists within Catholic praxis. Pretty sad if you ask me.
I agree such discord is sad, in their defence its to bad they have to do that.
It is the same mentality that prevents the ordination of married priests in the Eastern Catholic Churches of North America. Goodness, we wouldn't want to offend or confuse those poor Latins with the ancient practice of the Church now would we?
I know of plenty of married EOCC priests. Their ordinations weren't prevented. Being Latin myself I understand the discipline for what it is and as such can appreciate it from both a disciplinary aesthetic practice to help control passions/emotions as well as from a pastoral standpoint for the good of the flock.
I don't know if its so much about causing offense as confusion. I am sure there is plenty of information about the practice in both flavors available there if they want to find out about it. I don't think they want inflammation which is understandable as the role of moderation is often as peacemaker. Personally I have experienced more healing by the practice of chastity than I could have ever imagined possible. As St. Paul says, he would rather we be as he was but if we cannot there is no sin either.
Edit for grammar.
