"Did you hear about the recent YouTube sensation where a man named Jefferson Bethke says: “Why I hate religion, but love Jesus”?
In the video Bethke asks, “What if I told you Jesus came to abolish religion?” and “Why does [religion] build huge churches, but fails to feed the poor.” He also wonders why religion can be considered good if it’s started so many wars.
Of course, these are the same tired arguments we’ve all heard leveled against the Catholic Church for generations. But tragically, Bethke uses his great skills as a poet and video artist to make these stale arguments fresh and persuasive to a new generation of Americans.
…and his video already has 15 million views on YouTube and continues to spread like wildfire. These clever, but illogical and false critiques of the Church cannot go unanswered.
Our friends at Spirit Juice Studios put together a response that is sensational. And we just had to share it with you.
