Irony is dead. John Morris is a Roman Catholic Priest. Watch the above video to hear what he says. I have noted a couple of relevant comments below, the first for the irony factor and the second for the honesty factor:
"I don’t think it’s very healthy to have an imaginary friend.
If you have an imaginary friend there is something wrong with you.”
I think my irony-meter just broke. I know what I’ll be asking Santa to bring me for Christmas.
When queried about prayer being helpful in general, Morris also says, “All the studies say that it’s helpful.” This is a direct quote. He is lying. Here is a piece about prayer from a Christian blog for those who can’t access the actual studies. For those who can, there are studies mentioned in the piece and PubMed is your friend.
