Love Jesus, Hate Religion? Here’s the Poet’s Rebuttal

The other day I shared an e-mail I received from a reader, and the follow-up response to it by “the Kid.” Today I’ll share another Catholic response from another young man, this time in similar format to the “Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus” video that sparked the response. I don’t know his name, so I call him “the Poet.”
