I did not think it was unkind.
I had no idea that the Conciliar Anglican blog was already dead. I didn't see everything on that site, but I had visited it from time to time. It did help inform me about the faith. Didn't know the author had converted to something else. I do actually hear more conversion stories through Google of Anglicans becoming Roman Catholics than the other way around. And whenever a Roman catholic converts to Anglicanism, it's actually to the Episcopal Church for the sake of accepting gay marriage, female priests, baptizing pets, or something questionable like that.
Only cleric I've ever heard of converting from Roman Catholicism to Anglicanism is Fr. Peay of Nashotah House, who did a short stint as a congregationalist minister before rejoining the sacramental end of things. He left the Roman Church due to the Church essentially protecting pedophiles, but not for any liberal reason. He is still a staunch traditionalist, even for Anglicans.
I think our fellow forum member Fr. @Mark, was an Anglican priest who converted to Rome, realized he'd made a mistake and returned to the Anglican fold, as a priest in the REC if I am right.

say the Mass in Latin. Got their hopes up.....I reminded them we say or sing the Mass in the language of
You hear more of the Anglican to Roman converts due to the strange need of the Anglican convert to convince
him or herself they made the right choice. The Roman Church makes a big deal as they believe it proves they are
When a Roman becomes Anglican, I have yet to hear one "bash" the Roman Church or pontificate reasons as though
to convince either themselves or anyone they made the correct choice.
Just my observations.
