At Crisis my friend Fr. Rutler reacts to the cloths-tearing grief provoked in some, including some in Rome, by the death of David Bowie.
Here are a few of my favorite lines from Rutler:
“…the Vatican, just wiping up from its Climate Change light show on the façade of the Basilica of St. Peter’s…”
“L’Osservatore Romano, aching to be the Church of What’s Happening Now…”
“Young people are embarrassed when their mothers try to be ‘cool.'”
And the best line of all…
“Christ was a carpenter and his apostles were mostly fishermen and none of them was what is called today a ‘metrosexual.’”
