Why It’s Good that Priests are Like Pokemon

Bad Catholic recently published a delightful post entitled “Priests and Pokemon“. The post draws a nexus linking happiness with hierarchy and structure, and argues that the structure that comes with children’s games like Pokemon follows an intuition that should come naturally in other parts of our culture as adults, but are often shunned by as obstacles to happiness. Bad Catholic also comes tantalisingly close to drawing parallels between play and connecting with God, a theme that shall be developed in later posts here. In the meantime, “Priests and Pokemon” comes highly recommended.
