An avid reader since I was 5, thanks to my mom. Recently reading the novel “Broken Road” by Richard Paul Evans (2017), I came across the paragraph regarding the main character’s views on reporters while being interviewed by one before starting his presentation on a wealth seminar, and I quote: “There’s a dozen of you at every daily in America. Pseudo-journalists like you aren’t made, they’re pressed from molds, they’re not educated, they’re indoctrinated. You’re not taught to think you’re taught to regurgitate the party line then pat yourself on the back for your moral supremacy.”
With presidential elections fast approaching, don’t be fooled by lies, insults, misinformation, the usual rhetoric. Listen, learn and think for yourself.
Catechism: Blind faith or indoctrination? Flashback to the 1930s in Montreal to Holy Family Catholic School taught by the Sisters of St. Anne. From preparatory class to eighth grade I was taught to believe, not question. I didn’t till I was older with guilt always hovering – too many dos and don’ts. Views change.
With all that’s going on today with the Catholic Church, who can be trusted or believed, certainly not politicians.
