Deacon William T Ditewig, PhD, from the Archdiocese of Washington, DC, has written the following letter in his blog: Deacons Today: Servants in a Servant Church

I am writing for two reasons: to thank you for your leadership and courage, and to tell you that - despite what some are complaining about - I do not think anyone is "confused" by your actions, your teaching, and your writing. May I suggest that those who make that claim are using that language of "confusion" to mask the truth: that they just disagree with you.
