In a recent article, John Paul II biographer and Catholic author George Weigel suggested that among the New Year’s resolutions the faithful should adopt this year, they should, “Resolve to limit … exposure to the Catholic blogosphere. In 2019, many Catholic websites went bonkers. There is no need to click on sites that specialize in all-hysteria or all-propaganda all-the-time.”
It appears he was talking about alternative/independent media like 1P5. So, have we really outlived our usefulness? Steve Skojec seeks to answer that question in this episode of the podcast.
