The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Atheist Defends the Church...Against a "Catholic"?

This brief video is truly remarkable. In it Piers Morgan, a nominal Catholic who disagrees with pretty much everything the Catholic Church teaches, turns to well-known atheist, Penn Jillette, apparently expecting to encounter someone who agrees with him. Instead, Jillette defends the Church and, in effect, asks Morgan why he doesn't just leave the Church since he can't seem to accept any of its teachings. Good question. Of course, Morgan, as usual, asks questions and then constantly interrupts, not allowing his guest to answer. Fortunately, Jillette perseveres and manages to make his case.
