He is not a typical fire and brimstone kind of guy. He is a priest but I believe critiques atheism in a sincere and intellectual matter.

What's your viewpoint(s). Links should support your points, not be the whole topic, most especially when we know nothing about you.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

I do appreciate that Smile Though to be 100% in the clear and not be one of Willhopp's "dishonest" Catholics, I've got to admit to not being a fan of Bishop Barron's videos. They always seem rather lazy and appealing to the lowest common denominator to me. Not sure if it's one of the three links posted thus far, but there's one where his whole "checkmate atheists" moment is "explain what happened before the Big Bang".

That's the problem. In his environment, he's celebrated .... but in fact he's laughable in his obvious bs. He got away so long with it in his ivory tower, he thinks it can be translated to a wider audience. He's really not all that bright. Facepalm

Not all of his stuff is necessarily bad, but agreed that he's poor at translating what works in his own circle, to a wider one. Reltzik was willing to watch the videos, and gave a more charitable estimation of the good Bishop than I would have. Like a lot of apologists, I think he's primarily concerned with gently rocking the faithful into calm, when they have minor doubts, but utterly worthless if one were in a full blown Dark Night of the Soul.

I thought we already covered this in another thread. Lots of foreplay Wink

Foreplay is the best sort of theological discussion. Tongue

Yes some of us do. Sad

Laughed. So. Hard. And I should not have.

Need to think of a witty signature.

I find him to be a decent sort, far above the usual apologetic fare.
