I’ve been disheartened to see a lot of flak coming at him from the right, whether it’s tradcaths mad at him for some obscure point of doctrine I can’t grasp, or too Reformed guys reminding us all that even tho he’s based on social issues he’s still going to Hell for being a Catholic.

Like, can we take a win guys?

Some of us could not, in fact, take a win.

Yes, some confuse grumpiness for holiness.

Excellent post!

BTW, the Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica sound more like the Whores of Satan to me.

I’m in a state of wonder and awe that you, as a Protestant (that’s not a diss, by the way), have a better grasp of actual Catholic theology as well as what Harrison Butker actually said, than some of the current well-known, frequently self-aggrandizing Catholic writers and speakers seem to have. Thank you for the balanced and reasoned perspective in your essay. You seem to be closer to the mark, imo, than those who align themselves with the “fem catholic” side of the equation, or even some of those “tradcaths” who, for some reason, don’t like what he said either. I’m very happy that since he gave that speech, he has spoken out and said he has absolutely no regrets about anything he said. Now I just need to see if I can find a Harrison Butker #7 Kansas City Chiefs jersey to buy, and to wear with enthusiasm!
