Okay, so here’s the deal with this blog… first, this has nothing to do with my professional life. I am a devout Catholic and I wanted a place to talk about popular culture from a Catholic perspective. Why punk? Well, to be punk (and yes, I am old enough to remember the whole punk ideology) is to be anti-establishment. It was against conforming to societal norms. Well, since the 70′s, society has now drifted into one where tolerance is considered the most important of virtues, where human secularism reigns supreme and Catholics are ridiculed and belittled for their beliefs. Thus, a Catholic punk is one who rebels against the society by holding fast to 2000 years of Catholic tradition, who believes in a God, and who understands that there is a “right and wrong” that is not merely defined by what society holds to be fashionable at the moment!

I saw the last post was July….don’t stop blogging brother. I’ve been looking for something like this for some time. I write for various publications and do outreach as well. I’m a convert, an ex (never really ex..maybe more so than ever!) punk and totally dig your material here. I followed and if you start posting again I’ll link this site to my email list and a future article hopefully when i can fit it in. Keep the fight. Feel free to email!
You have the exact same philosophy that we have at Catholicmetal.com and I have expressed similar concepts when interviewed by the media (e.g. being a practising catholic is the best form of being punk that there is!)….I also play guitar/keys and compose music for Critical Mass…one of Canada’s touring Catholic rock bands….we should definitely link up! Keep up the great work and God bless!!!
