Well, if you’ve paid any attention to the Catholic blogosphere over the past week, then you’ve probably run across any number of posts responding to Elizabeth Scalia’s call out to her fellow papists to explain why they remain Catholic despite the dwindling numbers in our ranks here in the States and other places.

By now, of course, most of the good answers have been taken. We stay because it’s true, because it’s where we find grace, because we wouldn’t leave the Eucharist behind for anything. And all of those reasons (and more) are mine as well. But rather than reiterate what has been written better elsewhere, I thought I’d add one more reason which I don’t believe has been mentioned anywhere else. It’s at the bottom of the list, sure, but it’s kind of the icing on the cake. You see, one more reason to remain Catholic is the simple fact that… our guys just look cooler in movies than anyone else.

Okay, that last ones a bit silly, but it still points out the obvious. If you’ve got dwarven demons running around, who else are you going to call but a priest. Our guys just look cooler. Period.

This made me laugh before, and I'm laughing again.

My pleasure. Hey, would you believe the priest in that last photo is Ben Cross? Although I personally love The Unholy, I doubt it shows up on his resume.
