Word on Fire: The Internet and Satan’s Game

I don’t think you will find in anything I’ve written on this topic a desire for revenge or scapegoating. I condemn mean-spirited and/or vengeful reactions in every case. The model for political action I try to emulate is Martin Luther King, Jr., who employed the methods of Gandhi, who said “I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.”
When you’re about to make a comment, ask yourself a very simple question: “Am I doing this out of love, out of a sincere wish for the good of the person or persons I’m addressing?” If not, shut up. If it becomes clear that your comment is simply spleen-venting, scapegoating, or virtue-signalling, shut up. The internet can be a marvelous tool, and it can be a weapon used for Satanic purposes. Applying the test of love can very effectively undermine the scapegoating mechanism and drive the devil out. – Bishop Barron
