It must have been a bitter pill to put on a dog and pony show about Catholicism to fill his wallet.
The content of his admission indicates he's been living a doozy of a lie.
I often wonder if someday there will be a similar post at "Catholic and Enjoying It" or the Patheos crowd.
Coren must have been doing a lousy job as a Catholic journalist. In his farewell, he conflates the Eucharist with services where Transubstantiation does not take place. It was all the same to him.
Here's the question of the day: Why does the Catholic media known for their fidelity continue to employ individuals who are off of the reservation?
I don't get it.
Here, Catholic World Report expresses they employed him for a once-a-month column and admits they knew he was a mediocre theologian.
Here's the stupidist thing you'll read on the internet today:
Second, Coren is a good journalist and a fine communicator, but he is a mediocre theologian
Can anyone kindly explain what 'good' comes from a journalist they know is theologically misleading their readers?
Do they believe the entertainment is worth losing a few souls there and there?
Does it even enter their mind that stewing the poorly catehized in lousy theology is contrary to the purpose of our service to Christ as evangelists?
They certainly didn't do Coren any favors.
I don't mean to pick on Catholic World Report. This phenomenon has infested Catholic journalism. They have forgotten their first Love.
Educated Catholics are flocking to Pewsitter, ChurchMilitantTV and blogs to read finely-tuned, sound theology.
When a journalist discloses a flaw, the role of the apostolate employing him includes the casting of the net. That becomes more important than the deadlines and publication. A soul is floundering.
The last thing you do is publish his drivel for years because his drivel influences the uncatechized.
If there is an element of surprise when he tips his hat and says farewell, it is a conviction that your heart and mind and soul are not focused on the right things as an evangelist.
