There is an epidemic of immaturity, rootlessness and lack of commitment among young men today in America. One obvious Catholic manifestation of this condition is the remarkable absence of young males at Mass or at any Church functions.
Unfortunately these men are often attracted to the military to get some sense of purpose in their lives. They make good cannon fodder.
What is the antidote to American militarism which is so dangerous and seductive and attracts so many young men, particularly Catholic men? They should reject service in the armed forces of the neo-pagan American empire. Instead they should be Soldiers of Christ.
