Hemant Mehta says, “Goodbye and good riddance” Ratzinger. I echo Metha’s “The ‘Catholic Moment’ is Ending” as he echoes Ross Douthat in the New York Times article “The End of a Catholic Moment,” but I must point out: it’s been two very long, too long, millenniums.
As Mehta points out,
the reason for this shift — a wonderful shift, in my opinion — has less to do with, as Douthat suggests, the fall of Catholic leaders and the weakening of “institutional Christianity” than it does the rising power of the Internet and the war against bullshit.
Yes, Hermant Mehta has waged a successful “war against bullshit” along with,
atheists and liberals and those who have fought back against the intellectually/morally corrupt nature of the Church deserve a good deal of the credit, too.
The Catholic Moment is indeed ending in America.
Thank you, Hermant, we’re watching the Catholic Moment end in Canada as well.
