Well, what about the way that various people have been "handled" by the Review? E.g., Laura Compton, or Mike Quinn? Or Meldrum?
It's been very interesting to watch all these people finally coming out of the woodwork to admit that they have enjoyed the smearing and ridicule and attack-mindedness that have always been the raison d'etre of the FROB. Prior to these events, they all would have denied that this is the case. It took something of this magnitude for them to finally admit what all of us have suspected all along, which is that they think that critics of the Church deserve to be treated with enormous amounts of disrespect, and that they deserve to be unethically smeared and attacked. The FARMS Review, it would seem, has always been pandering to these people's worst impulses, and that is quite alarming, in my opinion.
Indeed. It is most interesting to see Dan's minions side with him, even if that means impugning "the Church".
