What happens when you put a Catholic priest, Father Jonathan Morris, on FOXNews and let people ask him religious questions?
Entertainment. Puzzlement. Confusion.
Were you expecting anything different?
This is a great clip to watch
He doesn’t know the answer… so he asks to use a lifeline. (It’s not like the Pope would know any better.)
My favorite line from Morris is this:
You know… the fact is that we don’t know *exactly* how things happened…
And yet, religious people somehow “know” that Adam and Eve existed, and Genesis is true, and there was a talking snake, etc.
Even Christians who don’t take Genesis literally “know” that God played a role in the process.
But call them out on it — or have them explain what it is they believe — and their explanations fall flat.
Morris dodges the question completely by saying we don’t know what happened… and then proceeds to tell us what he believes happened. It’s ridiculous.
Which is probably why it’s on FOXNews to begin with.
