Of podcasts and religion @ 09:29 pm

I'm not usually a big fan of Catholic outreach stuff, they're just not usually my thing. At the last church picnic someone gave Angie a CD of Catholic Podcasts. I sort of chuckled and didn't give it much thought. Checking it out though, they actually have some pretty cool content. They have a whole (large) section on Harry Potter and how it relates to religion. That would be great if my kids were older.

They have a whole section on Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Those are great to get non-hardcore Catholics interested. Then they have some more main stream Catholic stuff as well. I must admit I was surprised it was pretty decent.

graceadieu I'm talking to you!

I am glad you like it! Baptist friends of mine have told me that Star Wars and Harry Potter are counter to Christianity, but I do not agree. I see a strong religious undertone in Star Wars and in the subtext of Harry Potter. It is wonderful to see the Church helping young people to see the relevance popular literature and movies have to their religious beliefs.
