Who Is Behind The Catholic Fascist?

Yesterday's follow-up post about "the satirical site spawned a flurry of commentary" as well — "The Catholic Fascist" Revisited. This post will focus on the identity of The Catholic Fascist as speculated about in the post and comments.

Mark Shea made it clear whom it is he thinks is behind the project — Vox Nova's Id. However, a partison of that site, whom I have known and respected since long before he joined it, mentions the man behind catholicanarchy.org™, who "left Vox Nova of his own volition several months ago" and "is free to start any venture he likes with anyone he likes, regardless of whether he is behind the Catholic Fascist or not, as he has been accused."

Vox Nova itself, denies any linkage saying, "Some think it is a spin-off from Vox Nova, claiming this proves that Vox Nova is run by heterodox dissenters, because they see The Catholic Fascist as mocking Catholic doctrine" — Somewhat Funny, Somewhat Confusing.

Most intriguing, however, were these cryptic comments from an anonymous commenter:
    I think the blog of which you speak is a great honey pot - like Wikileaks.

    Within a week or two, the blog of which you speak has gone viral and ruffled a lot of feathers.

    Big shots' feathers - feathers of people I'd have least thought followed this stuff.

    We can now identify who reads what in the blogosphere. Before the existence of the blog of which you speak, we weren't necessarily sure about that.

    Think about it.

You think I didn't know that all along?

This is not a denial:

"Some think it is a spin-off from Vox Nova, claiming this proves that Vox Nova is run by heterodox dissenters, because they see The Catholic Fascist as mocking Catholic doctrine"

If you read it carefully, the post itself does not contain a denial, and none of the contributors have denied there is a linkage.

Western Confucian writes : "You think I didn't know that all along?"

I suppose that was too easy. But did you guess M.Z. is the Richard Hedges?

He's denying it, of course, but trust me.

And we Henry Karlson begged to be in on it, but we spit on him and told him to go play with the other girly boys.
