So, as a gag, the Deacon’s Bench links this goofy bit of humor about some fictional Jesuit college inviting Satan to deliver the commencement address. (Favorite line: “Also known as the Prince of Darkness, Lucifer, &, more popularly, the Devil, Satan is a divisive figure among Catholics & other Christians.”)
Result: the amazingly credulous people at Spirit Daily run a very earnest headline reading “Bizarre Catholic college ‘invite’ to Satan”
Honestly. I recognize that there is a place for childlike faith and I even have a rather high opinion of what the world often calls “credulity” and I call “openness to wonder”. But Spirit Daily tests even my patience some days with its frequently immature and undiscerning willingness to constantly truckle to an unhealthy hunger for sensationalism.
