Stating The Obvious

by Jimmy Akin

in Internet

I haven’t received any questions or complaints that would indicate confusion on the following point, but just as a precaution I want to clarify something to forestall any confusion arising in the future. What I want to clarify is this:

My blog is mine.

What I mean by that is that it is something I do on my own. I write it on my own time. I pay for it out of my own pocket. And the opinions that I express on it are mine.

My employer, Catholic Answers, does not give me time to blog. It does not pay for this blog. It does not ask for or give input concerning what I say on it (not even on this particular post, which I decided to write all on my own).

Consequently, when I blog I am writing purely in my capacity as a private individual, not as a representative of Catholic Answers.

For example, I might express opinions about political matters on my blog. I might even express opinions about particular political candidates. In so doing, I am speaking only for myself. Catholic Answers, as a non-profit corporation, does not take positions on political candidates or races.

Just wanted to clarify what should be obvious, in case anyone might potentially, hypothetically one day be confused about the matter.

Hope this helps!

Jimmy,
Does Catholic Answers have an official position on Saturn Girl?

Jimmy,
What is the Catholic Church’s official position on Saturn Girl?

Saturn Girl is a *really* cute and powerful telepath.
. . . oh, no, wait. That’s *my* official position. Not Catholic Answers’ or the Catholic Church’s.

I’m reminded of the old card about the newly married couple, one of whom said to the other: “Remember: What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine!”

Jimmy, I heard you tell Jerry, on “Catholic Answers Live” the other day, that you were telepathic. Is that *your* official position, Catholic Answers’ official position, or the Catholic Church’s official position? Also, is Saturn Girl your sister? And is she also from Texas?
