Larry Doyle’s “Jesus-Eating Cult”

It’s time to grow up and mix it up, rhetorically.  The best satire–much better than Doyle’s, in fact–has always come out of Christianity, because satire as a form depends on a consistent moral viewpoint.  See Jonathan Swift and the wonderful work in the last decades of the twentieth century of Walker Percy.  The first a devout Anglican priest and the latter a devout Catholic.

Larry, you are wrong,  and if you’d like to talk about it, we’re ready.  That’s all that needs saying.  Put away the calls for apologies and group pressure tactics in favor of censorship.  As Catholics we are here, we are relevant, and we are totally unafraid of debate or satire.
