    Immortal Combat with Fr. Dwight Longenecker

    In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam is joined by Fr. Dwight Longenecker to discuss why it is vitally important for a man to understand, live, and boldly confront evil as Christ's clear example and constant demand. Avoiding a nonconfrontational, feel good Gospel is not the way forward or the teachings of the Church. This widespread approach has created a wayward flock that indirectly teaches pacifism and has damaged uncountable lives.
    In this episode we discuss;

    How getting knocked outside our comfort zone can lead to right action

    How the Church calls us to boldly proclaim Truth

    The damage to society at large by watering down Christ's teaching
