Popular Portrayal of Catholics

Click here to listen

It’s not news to anyone that the Catholic Church has been the butt of a few jokes in popular society. If all you ever knew of the Church was from popular movies and television shows, your opinion of the Church would not be favorable: we’re up to no good but mostly irrelevant to society.

Naturally, this is a problem. This week on Everyday Liminality, Br. Tito and I discuss how the Church has been portrayed of late, where we might see some bright spots, and what we hope to change about this.

  2. It seems that in every British murder mystery show I watch, there’s at least one episode where the murderer is a nun who has been having an affair with a priest. Or maybe the priest lover was the accomplice too. Or maybe the priest committed the murder and the nun was the accomplice. Some variation thereof. We always joke about it; “oh boy, this must be the required evil priest episode.” “Oh, there’s a nun in this eposode; guess we know who the murderer is.”
