Comment of the day: on being content being “Catholicly evil.”

Comment of the day: on being content being “Catholicly evil.” December 8, 2014

Sometimes someone leaves a comment I like so much that I feel it should get it’s own feature.  Jeff’s comment from this morning is such a comment:

Catholic philosophy is weird. As far as I can tell, the whole moral system is based on the idea that following the rules = good and not following the rules = evil. Do the rules make sense? Doesn’t matter. Do the rules promote benefit or prevent harm? Doesn’t matter. Obedience matters. Oh, and no evil thing is any better or worse than any other evil thing.

This is why I’m content to just be catholicly evil. It’s a mostly meaningless distinction, useful only for determining whether or not a person tries to follow the catholic rules. Like many other words, it means something very different when used in a religious context as opposed to a normal context. So sure, whatever, I’m evil.

That is just lovely.  The mark of having an awesome reader base is when they frequently say more insightful things than I do.  I love my readers.
