Gomer and Luke interview Fr. Harrington 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.
SHOW NOTES We introduce to you Bradley Barnes, a handsome convert from Pentecostalism (8 years ago) who works as a Catholic Youth Minister in Cincinnati. We have no idea how or why we found just a random youth minister in Cincinnati. Neither of us have any connections to Cincinnati. Amiright? We start talking youth ministry, but then we talk about the scandal because we all work for the Church and that's all we know what to talk about. There was a lot more constructive conversation about...
Matt and Lisa Martinusen from "The Catholic Card Game" (with the Catching Foxes Expansion Pack) join us to relaunch their Kickstarter, talk about the in's and out's of creating a physical product, and make fun of Michael Vorris. SHOW NOTES Luke and Gomer would like to apologize to the following groups: 1. Filipinos 2. Charismatic Catholics 3. Baby Boomers 4. Michael Vorris 5. Life Site News 6. Petitionary Prayer Politicizers 7. Gomer's wife 8. Gomer's wife again 9. But not Wade. Never Wade....
