Uh oh

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 01, 2005

Keeping the Faith: Becoming a Priest in Today's Catholic Church will be broadcast this evening on the Times/Discovery Channel. Cincinnati Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk gave permission. That's bad. The rector of seminary thinks it's "fair." That's worse.

"It shows the humanity of the seminarians for people who think the place is filled with ethereal activities," Smith said.

Got that? Seminarians are human too.

UPDATE REQUEST: Anybody happen to see the program? I'd be delighted to be wrong about my hunch.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
