Pope Culture

I was born a catholic. But that doesn’t matter – I was also born an idiot with zero vocabulary, an uneven temperament, and was easily distracted by jiggling keys. So my state at birth is irrelevant. The point is – technically, I’m a catholic, but I’m not a very religious...

10Cs for the Church of Tolerance

I was raised a Catholic. But I was also encouraged to think, so I guess I turned out ok. As a kid, the concept of God was easy to understand. My childhood was peppered with movies and stories that had black and white concepts of good and bad. The hero...
