A very special episode of MMM...Locusts! We went backpacking and tried to record the show out in the woods! It kind of worked, until it didn't. But then it did again. Sort of. Anyway, give it a listen. (Special bonus Rosary content in the after-show!)
What kind of world do we live in? Well, one where opinions are increasingly frowned upon, unless they are sanctioned by the agenda of the moment. You certainly have to watch what you say, because people are more and more easily offended, and offending people is becoming a high crime. Ha HA! Try to be funny now, you stupid Catholic podcasters! We'll shut you down quick! We'll make you wish you never—wait... which side am I on?
There was once a young gentleman named Adam Boyle who knew more about Catholicism than the three of us put together on our best day. Adam's a sophomore at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and he joins us to talk some Theology and Catechetics, yo. Listen and learn. We did!
Rob can't resist playing a game too, so he brings in "Would You Rather?" and, well, we play "Would You Rather?" Deep theology? No. But there are some questions with moral leanings, so we actually do delve into Christian thought a bit. And Mike is so, so wrong about everything.
Mike's 3-episode game moratorium has expired, and he wastes no time getting back to it. With questions pulled right out of "Catholicism for Dummies," it's 'answer-correctly-or-sing-an-80's-song' time once again. We're sorry.
Few things divide Protestant and Catholic Christians as profoundly as the topic of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As converts, we all had our issues with her and have come to love her very much... Unfortunately, this episode does little to either bridge the division, or to express our devotion. However, if you're looking for crude comments about the Brady Bunch, we gotcha covered. I'm pretty sure the devil worked overtime to distract us from our intended topic on this one.
Do you believe in extra-terrestrials? Would the discovery of life on other planets mean the end of Christianity? Well, if you can muddle through about a half hour of us prattling on about nothing, we might actually talk about that. (This is part 14 in our ever-expanding quest to prove that no one knows less about more than we do.)
Prayer. What is it? How do you do it? What does it accomplish? Does it matter? Why are you listening to us talk about it? Don't you have anything better to do? Why am I speaking in questions? What's your favorite color? What is the average flight speed of a coconut-laden African swallow?
FORGIVE, FORGIVE, FORGIVE! That’s what we’re made to do, what we’re called to do, and what we just find so dad-gummed hard to do. Why? We have no idea, but we sure do like to talk about it. Also, skeezy TV preachers ripping people off. Is ‘skeezy’ a word?...
Saints! That seems like a super-Catholicy thing to talk about, doesn't it? So we do. And somehow all that talk of holy people ends up leading Lee to give Rob the ultimate compliment. Which means that, obviously, this is a very dangerous topic. Listener beware!
Mike invents a game to test our knowledge of... well, something that may or may not involve quotes from the Bible. We run the gamut of emotions in this episode—tears, laughter, abject white-hot righteous fury. But mostly the fury thing. Come listen and find out how Mike's game show privileges were revoked.
This is literally our latest episode. You should literally listen to it right now. We literally talk about whether we should all subscribe to a literal interpretation of the Bible. What’s our conclusion? We literally have no idea. Subscribe on iTunes!
Been having fun listening to MMM...Locusts!? Well, forget it. This week's episode is a major downer, thanks to Rob. We talk about relativism, technology, worldly perspectives, and suicide machines. On the other hand, there's also banjo music. So... Subscribe on iTunes!
Dialing in to the wisdom of Solomon, Mike involves us in an "Odd one out" game, which leads to learning new words, talking about Proverbs, and singing bad '80s songs. We demonstrate that, along with having precious little knowledge or talent, we clearly have no shame.
Okay, first OFFICIAL episode. We talk about the root sins—Pride, Vanity, and Sensuality—that underlie all our sinful behavior. For those of us who actually HAVE sinful behavior, that is. Yes, we're looking at you, Rob.
