While some may disagree with the assessment, I fear that it is pretty much on target. If this is true in school, could the same criticisms be leveled at the way the Church treats our boys and young men? Sermons that address faith almost exclusively in terms of emotion, hymns and songs that sound like love ballads to Jesus, and an emphasis upon participation which targets feelings all say something to boys and men. Just a few thoughts. . . on a touchy subject. . .
