004 - Canceling All The Wrong People

004 - Canceling All The Wrong People

This week we consider the significance of (former) Pope Benedict's past involvement with priests who were caught abusing children. This comes from an article which examines Benedict's fail to remember his participation in a safeguarding meeting about the priest in his old parish. We also discuss recent events in the life of Christian rapper Lecrae, and how a tweet of his which criticizes the Church on several counts led to an unnamed venue canceling his scheduled tour date there.

Scott and Mark talk about the need for better scrutiny on new priests as well as the need for lifelong support to help them with their vows of celibacy. Also, they discuss the Church's need not to be so thin skinned that it cannot tolerate criticism. More than this, the Church needs to examine its own responses to criticism, namely becoming part of the "cancel culture" which many are concerned about. The source articles can be found at Church Times and The Christian Post.

This weeks picks:

Scott recommends the book Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Mark recommends the YouTube channel iilluminaughtii.
