Action Alert!

either God's mistake or PC culture's

By Diogenes ( articles ) | May 28, 2010

The new Oberammergau Passion Play, with its PC Stamp of Approval, offers what is now a conventional-- indeed predictable-- comment on the Catholic faith: Jesus is OK but the Church is nasty. An actor who plays the lead role gets the picture exactly:

You can see from the play that Jesus was against hierarchy and against institutions.

 Odd, then, that He founded a hierarchical institution.
 

So either the institutional Church is a mistake, committed by the Incarnate God, or the new Oberammergau play is a mistake, committed by a fashionable artist. Which is it? Only someone drunk on the Kool-Aid of popular culture would spend more than a nanosecond on the question.
