We are joined by the fine priests of Catholic Stuff You Should Know. And Gomer and Fr. John have it out! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! Also, pray for priests who are discarded by the workaholism and isolation of this modern twisted culture. And thank God for priests willing to fight for not just holiness, but their own health, virtue, and community.
Gomer and Luke talk DIVE BARS because we are going to do our first MEET UP of 2019 after tonight's SEEK Conference lineup at Dugout Bar, Indianapolis's best dive bar. It's one mile from the conference. Also, Gomer shares too much Limp Bizkit stories and Luke prepares everyone for our non-involvement in the actual conference. Special Guests: Father Mike Schmitz, Leah Darrow, and Matt Fradd.
Topics to Discuss### Christmas Stuff -left all my stuff at home that I would normally use, but everyone cleared out of the room -shoe-horning this episode FOR THE FANS! -Christmas presents: Luke got scarves, Gomer got the Word on Fire classics Aquaman (critical, but not really spoilers) -GI Joe, but underwater, and not good -recognized Ocean Master only when he put his silly Bible Man mask on -senseless action sequences that went on for far too long -Hero’s journey story that is weaker than...
Follow-up: Two great listeners challenge Gomer's previous assertion that Fr. James Martin is corrupting the faith by falsely accommodating the moral teachings of the Church to win LGBT+ souls for Christ. They assert that he isn't respecting 'gradualism' for the sake of the 'heroic ideal.' Gomer asserts that's Lutheran, not Catholic. Luke vents about the National Dialogue on Young Adult ministries, and how much he hates this stuff. Surveys?! How dare you? Gomer asks Luke then how do you know...

Gomer and Luke interview Fr. Harrison Ayre from Canada to talk evangelization, especially if it is 'too Protestant' in those Missionary Discipleship circles. We talk things like parish renewal, the emphasis on commitment vs. sacraments, how they do/don't complement one another, and Church of the Nativity gets put on blast yet again.
We talk about A LOT of things. The main event is the recent article by Jenn Morson on how the University has handled Title 9 claims, and once again Gomer talks about "it's all about the culture" with these things. Also, we do FOLLOW UP from our Christopher West episode and take some Patreon supporters questions.
Christopher West, the American apostle of St. JP2's Theology of the Body, hops on our show for some sexual healing. We talk the nuptial meaning of the body, tree sex, and Gomer making jokes like he's still in 8th grade.
Luke introduces "Fat Shaming" and the Science of being overweight. Luke then talks about a Von Balthasar quote on meaning in his book, "Prayer". Gomer carries out the main topic of "anti-culture" what it is and what it's doing to us.
We interview Mike Savage, author of "A Prisoner's Perspective" and this dude is FASCINATING and has a voice of GOLD. Also, Gomer shames himself talking about "going in your celly" instead of "cell". Wait for it.
On this episode we recount Luke's travels to the CATHOLIC CREATIVES SUMMIT in Dallas, Texas, do a brief interview with Michael and Tony from Project YM and Catholic Beard Balm Co, talk about the heart of 'thick community', and Gomer smashes the Scandal yet again.
The second half of last week's episode! We dive into the two Chicago priests arrested in Miami as a sign of the actively gay subcultures and enclaves present in the Church. Then I play a statement from my parish's town hall meeting that will break your heart. Finally, no gay witch hunt, please! (It was after this that Gomer heard Fr. James Martin's demand to stop the gay witch hunt, which there isn't any actual gay witch hunt, just a lot of blogospher talking. Anna and Shannon are amazing...
Just Luke and Gomer today, folks. We take a break from THE SUMMER OF SCANDAL in order to answer a ton of questions. We recorded for about 3 hours straight, so this is only a portion of those questions answered. Oh yes, tangents were rampant.
