It does seem at times that while faithful Catholics can be very sober and vigilant, there is often a strange "disconnect" when it comes to figures in sports and/or entertainment. Why is that? Is it because they want the emotions caused by these "stars" so much that they'll allow the "stars" a "pass" when it comes to their immoral lives and proclivities? What is it? I don't get how good people can be so inconsistent as to turn a blind eye towards entertainment idols when they would never do so for other "ordinary" people.
Even the Vatican got swept up in the worldly group-think. Cardinal Ravasi, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture, put out a tweet lauding Bowie and quoting from one of his songs. I would say that I'm surprised but I'm not. Given that this is the same office that spewed forth the "bimbo video" and its "bsdm display", we can say that Ravasi is simply being typical. Still, it's a disgrace to see a Prince of the Church lolly-gagging with silliness while so many truly pressing issues need to be addressed by the Church. One could have hoped that the Cardinal might have offered prayers for the repose of Bowie's soul; alas, that did not happen.
I asked questions in the preceding paragraphs, for which I cannot fathom answers. Does anyone know? The com-box is open (subject to moderation, of course).
