SPORT AND THORT: how it’s done in Australia
If you go to Sunday morning Mass you’ll find the streets fairly deserted.
Yet if you go past a sporting complex, the car park is already full.
And hundreds of children are running about hitting, kicking — and squabbling for possession of — some kind of ball.
They aren’t in Sunday School. Nor at Mass.
Why not give them a ball each?
Then they could stay at home and spend the day looking at their ball — no need to squabble over it. (But of course their addiction is not to balls. They’re addicted to squabbling.)
They’re being groomed for a life of addictions — if they aren’t addicted, they might start to think.
Worse, they might question the premises on which conventional secular thinking-substitute is based.
Sleep on it.
More on this topic tomorrow.
