Fulton Sheen Again!

"Of Sheen Never Enough"?  We won't go that far, but it's nice to see a Christian clergyman of any denomination in the 20th or 21st centuries who comes out so strong against the "new things" of modernism, socialism, and the New Age . . . without attacking the modernists, socialists, and the New Agers (although that hasn't stopped them from going after anyone who disagrees with them, or who they think disagrees with them, or who will disagree with them, or who might disagree with them, or whose tie they don't like, or. . . .)

Today's Just Third Way podcast is a "rebroadcast" of Fulton Sheen on "The Catholic Hour" from January 1943 and his series on "Crisis in Christendom" (which obviously doesn't restrict the problem to Christians, but pinpoints problems afflicting all of us and the whole of society).  This one is called "Some Barnacles on the Ship of Democracy."  Try not to assume that Sheen was seeing into the future.  It's just that the same problems in different form keep surfacing.
