Catholic revert Francis Beckwith walked out on Mass last Sunday after encountering something “worse than you can imagine.” The offending event was nothing short of an “abomination,” which left him duly “scandalized.”
And what was the unimaginable abomination, you ask? Was it the prospect of receiving communion from the hands of a child molester. Was it a syncretistic homily, a la Vatican II?
No. It was some bubblegum music performed by teen celebrants.
As a leading ethicist, that was simply too much to bear. And it’s gratifying to know that his return to Rome hasn’t dulled his keen sense of moral priorities.
