Comments on #26

An excerpt from an email from Jordan:

Father Bagodonuts says (paraphrasing) "make all the mistakes you want
and let Jesus take care of it".  That’s a dangerous message.  It might
be literally true, because if you were concentrating on Jesus you
wouldn’t want to make any mistakes (sins), but it could be
misinterpreted as license to sin because of the availability of grace

A portion of our response:

As for the Father Bags comment, I agree with you. After the statement
was made, I had a similar train of thought run through my mind. I think
on our next show we’ll address that.

Regarding episode 26

I agree with
what you guys said about the youth groups…For me, I went through
confirmation and then just…nothing. Mass was that boring place mom
took me on Sundays and, as soon as I was 16 and she told me I could
choose for myself, I chose to stay home and sleep in. I wish I had
something that drew me in and helped me grow in my faith as a teen.
