[On a letter by Julien Bertrand about traditional Catholicism vs the “chasm of nihilism” with drugs, alcohol, and pornography]
Reason to ban porn #878.995: It serves as a distraction and artificial release valve that keeps men from taking action to make their and other's lives better.
The government-sanctioned persecution of white men, the Vatican II generation's abject failure to hand on the faith, and the Church-assisted invasion of the West are three catastrophic crises which the hierarchy remains deafeningly silent on.
These aren't just political matters. All of these evils are combining into a perfect storm that's crippling the Church in the US, Canada, and Western Europe.
God bless Julien Bertrand and the letter's cosigners. He's probably right that their call for our wayward shepherds to actually tend their flock will fall on deaf ears--this time.
But what if the bishops received a hundred more letters just like it? How about a thousand?
It's also worth noting that the letter's main author belongs to Generation Y. His example tends to support the position often advanced here that Ys who manage to overcome their learned helplessness can rise to become capable leaders.
