Culture Shock

Culture Shock September 30, 2015

One of the most hilarious parts of the recent papal visit was listening to Evangelicals grimly warn Catholics “You shall have no other gods before me” and exhorting them not to worship the pope, while so many Catholics were spending all their waking hours complaining about what a terrible pope he is.

Evangelicals really need to get to know some Catholics. And Catholics really need to get to know this pope. You’d think the internet would destroy this kind of insular ignorance, but in fact people tend to use the internet to create bubble communities where they can surround themselves with information sources that only tell them what they want to hear and they only meet people who already agree with them.
