Great Catholic podcast!
Great Catholic podcast! Very relevant to todays conversations. Enjoy hearing theior stories from their own lives in raising Catholic kids in todays culture.
Blatant disregard for others
I had previously enjoyed the banter and Catholic content on this podcast, but will not be listening anymore, after the female cohost today proudly shared that she ignores posted signs requiring people to wear masks in public places. She also made an offhand statement talking about how too many people are listening to and being confused by “science”. While nobody could have ever confused her for an intellectual before this commentary, this statement is reckless and selfish, and ignorant to the fact that Catholicism and science need not be mutually exclusive; and that we are given an incredible opportunity to show care and selflessness to our neighbors - the most Christian of all callings - in these times. I will be redirecting my time to more learned and rational Catholic podcasts going forward.
