"I didn't see the value of I didn't for me. It could be a source of holiness of life for some people. But it wasn't for me it wasn't bringing me closer to God are making a faithful Christian. I'm sure many people these subconsciously connected to things Some not so subconsciously. Is there any evidence supporting a link between Celibacy and what we've seen With the sexual abuse crisis in the Church they research does not indicate that there's any cause effect between sex abuse and celibacy on the other hand in the public realm. I think there is serious. Consideration and suspicion at times about Is about the sexuality of priests and even good priests. I know that that that try and do indeed live this. This commitment very faithfully will tell you very rarely That th they're under suspicion that they they too can come under You know disapproval. What have you been all priests friend in Dublin? Who says that You when he was first deigned to be walked down the street people would salute him. Good morning father. Good morning father. Now you walk down the street he gets spat on so there's been a dreadful demise In the image of priesthood. That's so tragic. Space Steve for good priests have suffered As a consequence of the dreadful scandals and the the Federal Behavior and crimes committed against children. When it comes to these decisions or the tabling of these decisions By the pope. What does this mean for the sustainability and the relevance of the of the Catholic Church? Moving forward you know as a religious educator. I've spent my life trying to teach people that the wonders of this great faith. Even though it's church can sometimes disappointed and even fail us as a human institution yet. It's tremendously life-giving faith. A faith that embraces life with greats relishing and enthusiasm and called us to limit well both personally and socially. My hope is that we can regroup. We will come into a better time. I think modernity was particularly unkind to Christian values. I think post modernity is more open to the to the spiritual epitomized and my young people at Boston College or go around saying I'm spiritual but not religious but I see that as a positive that they're taking their soul there's whole unspiritual center seriously and I think hopefully Catholicism can step in And be present to them with a very rich spirituality.

"And so they're just taking these dances and making them famous. I wouldn't say it's the necessarily the dances that made these white influencers famous. But it's kind of their. They've become synonymous with these dances. Some of the people that come to mind for you and how big are their followings. Yeah I mean I don't WanNa like call out any specific names because you know there's many of them but these are people with tens of millions of followers just tens of millions of dollars and the renegades rampant. I mean it's not even like one or two influencers taking dance. It's the entire platform in addition to people like the Kardashians and David Dobric or Zane and heath some of these really popular huge youtubers white youtubers. Celebrities Liz. Oh herself did the dance as well. And then you know a cake. Pop Band performed. This dance has been all over. The Internet renegades like the dance at the moment right now so you recently wrote an article by J Harmon the creator of the renegade dance in. How until recently she didn't get any credit for the dance when it went viral overtake talk and other social media platforms. So what opportunities do delay and other black creators such as yourself. Lose out on when they don't get any credit when they don't get credit for these dances especially something like the renegade that is completely taken over. I mean to extend the mock arena like every kid can do it. They perform at pep rallies. It's this massive thing It's which he loses out is not only obviously like direct monetization like brand -dorsements and things like that but she also lose out on the opportunity to generate a following and having a following online is hugely powerful these days people when they do know the creators of the dance will follow them onto talker instagram. And keep up with their content. It's sort of like they're losing out on the ability to become an influence or themselves even though they are influencing culture so Let's let's get a sense for those of us who don't don't know what the renegades like how would you describe the renegade? Yeah it's it's better. Twenty second piece of choreography that incorporates popular moves. But it's very much your jalazone sequence of Dad's it's it's kind of a tick tock dance where there's not a lot of lower body movement it's mostly upper body movement and it's just kind of you're doing the WHOA. You're doing the worm I believe part of it. It's kind of this. Like amalgamation or dance moves but also unique choreography so Shamir were talking about this latest social media platform but essentially this is a much longer and much more fraught. History about the theft of ideas from black creators create. Yeah I mean this is a long history going back you know for generations in dance and it just general culture So you know this is going back to jazz music this is going back to in dance the cakewalk so really what we're seeing in the space of technology is that we're just seeing this ad accelerate celera an accelerated pace rate because we're moving beyond platforms from Florida platform from by to talk and the dubs fast pace and seeing that. It's making it harder to really reconcile it in different platforms and reconcile it with the legislative space. Shamir Ibrahim is a freelance culture writer. And Taylor Lorraine's is a technology reporter at the New York Times covering Internet culture. Thank you both for joining us. Thank you thank you only last year. The number of Catholic priests worldwide declined for the first time in a decade according to the Vatican. Nowhere is this declined. Being felt more than the Amazon and some of its most remote areas. Catholics will sometimes have to wait months between masses sometimes years so in an effort to boost the number of clergy there a group of Catholic bishops gathered at the Vatican in October to recommend that Pope Francis allow married men in the Amazon to become priests they also suggested he let women serve as deacons. But that won't be happening anytime soon. Last Wednesday Francis finally responded to the bishops request in a papal letter. He sidestepped the issue entirely. He didn't say no to either issue. He didn't say no clearly to the idea of banning married men nerdy say no to the idea of ordaining women to the Holy Order of on the other hand. I think he missed a golden opportunity to say yes. That's Thomas Groom Professor of Theology at Boston College and author of the Book Faith for the heart. The pope's litter was ultimately a tribute to the Amazon rainforest and its people as the first Latin American pope. He's been concerned about the environmental destruction of the region for a long time and his recent document hits that message home according to Michelle Dillon. A professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire and the author of Post Secular Catholicism. So it's full of beautiful affirmations of the dignity of indigenous peoples as well as the importance of recognizing they bring to the church and how the church can learn from them still. The Pope's decision on the issue celibacy or rather the absence of one came as a disappointment for many progressive Catholics. For more on this I turned to Thomas and Michelle the professors you just heard. I started by asking Michelle if she was surprised by Pope Francis Decision to not address. The question of priestly celibacy especially since he's been portrayed as much more progressive than his predecessors not really. I think it was obviously a lot of anticipation. But as we've seen in the past and any of these are theologically hot button but also politically and culturally hot button. The POPE TENDS TO BE SOMEWHAT CAUTIOUS. There is a common misconception. Though that Celibacy is doctrine in the Catholic church correct never has been never will be that we regularly ordain married people to the priesthood. People who have been Anglican or a PISCOPO Kalian Lutherans. We've many that over one hundred. Mary Priestley United States and the Roman communion and then the eastern Orthodox eastern Catholic traditions. They've never agreed to the obligatory celibacy. And of course the church existed for over a thousand years for almost seven hundred years without a celebrate a priest. There's only about in the middle of the twelfth century that It became universal law of the Western Church. So and of course the tradition is that all of the apostles were married and for the possible exception of. Saint John. This is a particular discipline that may have served the church well at one point in time but it would look as if it no longer serves the church well and especially in light. Vatican twos reached aiming of the spirituality of marriage. I mean that it can to talk about marriage as a call to holiness of life as a consecration before God that's language was use only of the vowed religious life before now the church uses of married life so if people say well you know. Marriage is a valid location for spiritual for holiness of life et CETERA. So why do we then say? It has to necessarily be excluded now if some people want to be Salad. I always wanted to support that. But there's no need whatsoever. In fact there's very ill advised at this point to make that a requirement of Diaz and priests Michelle. What are the arguments for maintaining this tradition of Celibacy? Well I think the argument is that you know pre spy taking vowed celibacy dedicating themselves completely to the church into serving the church. The people of the of the church rather than having no split loyalties if you will toward toward the wife and family but in part also there's an irony here because one could argue that perhaps. The church maintain the vow of celibacy and the expectation of that as a discipline. But why not move toward looking at ordaining women? I mean this is. What's interesting many women in this country and other countries feel a call to ordination? They're not asking to be ordained as Mary. Priest to be ordained as priests and to take vows celibacy so when we get into these debates if these sort of illuminates all kinds of tensions within church teaching about sexuality and sexual behavior but also then about gender and what gender entails and this whole debate has many issues. Shine the light on really what I say is what does it mean to be Catholic. And how just a church want to be as it goes forward to be photography to prioritize Michelle. The Catholic Church was considering this for the Amazon. Because they're suffering from huge shortage of priests is a real link between the valve celibacy and the shortage that we're seeing. Well I think in the particular context of the Amazon it is. It's just a bigger problem as such largely because the Amazon covers you know so many different countries such a large swath of difficult terrain so therefore it really does seem that there truly is a shortage of priests in the context of the American society. There is a shortage but in part at shortages because Americans are so used to happen so many priests serving a parish I think celibacy has to be one factor because as I said I think being oppressive a lonely life there's a lot of spiritual and material and social affirmation to some extent at but ultimately you really can't be in an intimate relationship and I think in today's world with such an emphasis on relation. -ality not just sexuality but relation -ality that certainly puts a dampening effect on young men who might be considering entering the priesthood. Some of the coverage suggests this is a victory if you will by conservatives in the church WHO OPPOSE POPE FRANCIS. Is that a fair reading. Well I don't think we should see. These debates are issues. In terms of a victory. You know. Winners and losers. Even though I know that's how the headlines in part that's what media tend to emphasize I are the conflicts that emerged in house. This feeds into one camp but it really goes to the question of what is the identity of the Catholic Church going forward. You know ultimately what is more important? Is it more important to invest more critical to Catholic? Identity is having access to participate fully in the sacraments of the Church and in particular to the Eucharist. Is Doc more important or less important than who it is actually consecrates the eucharistic mass left married man or a woman priest we've seen certain dioceses in the US for For instance Shrinking at least from lack of attendance and light does a church lose of priests because of these traditions. Well I think so because you know we see salone. Li Life being a priest but that's part of the sacrifice in a sense. On of course for many decades being appraised was a very nice occupational pass but in the post war and post Vatican two era with so many operable by channels available to Catholic men. I think the priesthood obviously has lost out but it's not just because of the occupational demands of being a priest. I think it's also because of the challenges that the church itself as an institution has faced in an increasingly secular world. Now Thomas Your priest in the Catholic Church but ultimately decided to leave the priesthood. Did the vow celibacy factor into your decision. It was a part of it but but only a part I see it as needed as a needed lifestyle and I also had the unique opportunity of continuing to do a great deal of ninety percent. Ninety five percent of the work I was doing as a priest in fact was as a professor of theology where they just education so in some ways. I simply had to stop celebrating the Eucharist public and are in private. Either that was about they biggest adjustment. I did miss that. I loved to preach and to preside prayerfully and it. It was a part of that. Era is a part of that time thirty five years ago. That over twenty five thousand priests in the United States alone Between Nineteen Seventy and nineteen ninety over twenty five thousand priests resigned priests and I would say ninety. Five Ninety eight percent of them was to to get married and have a family. Because they didn't they didn't see the requirement is necessary didn't are saw themselves as called with a vocation to priesthood. But not with a vocation to the Sabbath avowed life. The CELIBACY ISSUE. Obviously was was a was a challenge. N One the one that.

We have these dance performers performers. They're amazing they dance they perform on Saturday night and they're all the performers are on the stage and the first time they did this. They scared me okay because they're all there dancing a lot of sun performance or coming off the stage and grabbing kids and taking them up on the stage the next thing I know the stage has been taken taken over by the audience and all the performers are the dancers for in the audience and this. I've you know as we were done. I was getting ready to walk. Walk up to the stage to make announcements and this young little autistic grow came up and hugged me and just said this was the best day ever and I went okay. That's it. That's why Oy I do this. That's why put myself through this is so that we can have young children perform on a stage. That would never have a chance to do it and it's just it's such an crate event and now we've got Michelle Dillon. You know something that's so leading edge just going to blow people's minds Tom. So when win on away tells the story well well. I you know I think I'm going to shift a little bit. I I really WANNA. Tell people people because you know I'm a connector. That's something that I enjoy. I feel like I do good with that and you know I do. I don't know yeah <hes> but that part. You gotta be really feel like I should talk about the think tank <hes>. It's something that we just started <hes> about five months on S- ago or something like that so we have once a month and we just meet up and we it's. It's a more engaging environment. We right you you know different ideas on the board and things like that and then we just go into just really fun brainstorming. It's Possum I love it. I love it. I love it so much and and you know we've had a couple people that have have come and they actually have projects that they're working on and things like that and we actually have solved problems for them. You know so much like and we go all over the place like you're you should come sometime. I think you really really enjoy as a matter of fact. Give a really cool even to do a podcast like. I figured it'd be fascinating. We're there because we like. We have so many different every month the same time it's the third Tuesday of the month and then you know <hes> we we usually capita about we usually have about fifteen people there Max and so I make sure <hes> evening around yeah we we start at six thirty and it's just it's fascinating fascinating and the only thing that I ask is that it has something to do with disruptive technology or some tile like so we got you know we talk about aliens or a the I this and that and it's just so much fun that that to me is you know von sits really cool next mind expanding yeah but we know I mean you don't have to whisper land. Lynn Lynn Lynn Co Burn Ladies and gentlemen is the think think-tank is a higher perspective. The first time I went I walked out of there and just oh these are really brilliant thoughts you know and some of the solutions that they were coming up with it was like Oh wow I one of my favorites actually was <hes> so it's <hes> <hes> so in the blockchain we have what's called a seven twenty. One else sits a non fungible token basically what it means is. It's <hes> a way to write contracts wchs and and put it on the blockchain. Okay so it with me. I guess you can't go there. I'm kind of their contracts. Drink not quite the same as the contract with the lawyer but it's similar it could be it could be could be so very good <hes> so we came up with an idea to do like like a donation base where where <hes> like for example one of the things that I thought of after we had the think tank was because I ran into this lady that does <hes> <hes> coral reef restoration or you know she helps with the coral reefs and so I thought Oh that would be brilliant to have you know an adoption a AH blockchain adoption <hes> system or protocol where somebody can adopt a coral reef and then we just <hes> keep people updated through the <HES> <hes> through the contract and then that way we can see the growth of the of the <hes> coral reef anyway anyway. I know it's really it's really really really fun so that's that was. I think that is the that is the essence of this. Show is taking the technology that we have in making it for a better. Eh that is used for a better world beautiful yen betterman signing up for the world yeah you guys definitely social weaponary and when when we have the next one sure absolutely it's August Twentieth Twentieth August twentieth. Were there were there Ryan. We got market down the calendar impact hub no <hes> sumner. I don't think so sumner sumner don't know is that that's like a name linked prince right okay. Let's get this is so fun. We're kind of running out of time. <hes> let's just jump straight to what's a what's something you could give our listeners to that. They can take take away and do or an action items in something that our listeners can our listener listener the peop-. The person that is listening out there that needs to hear what you're fixing to tell them weeks for that really work on we started out with the topic you know gaining perspective and making the impossible possible and and so I think a lot of people are really asking how do you make the impossible possible right and so I was in this yoga class and that's exactly what it was. Yes <hes> do those. Yoga instructor sat me down and said listen. You'RE NOT GONNA do it all at once. You'RE GONNA take small small steps and you're going to practice and you're going to have a discipline and each day. You're going to get closer and closer to making. And what was impossible today possible in several months and so when we take a look at you know it was impossible at one time time for this balloon festival comeback. Nobody thought we would ever have this event back in the valley and we made it possible and you know it was just really getting kidding really clear about what division was and what my hurdles were and to go through each hurdle and you say okay. Here's the hurdle and you don't do it alone. You do it with the team and that team is so strong that you have no choice but to succeed so you build a team around you and can you make the impossible possible. I love it. I love it love it that is so cool and going with the thing with balloons I I lived in Albuquerque for a little bit albuquerque small little bitty by farm right and <hes> one morning I woke up and I heard there was like ten balloons fried chest like it. Oh Yeah you're pretty good do that next to see what it does so anyways my window what does that and there's this blue Bam acid rain on my window and it was just amazing so and I I had a chance to go on a balloon was little tied or tethered and I was grateful for that because of ways though okay anyways so the experience is it you're you're providing is amazing is really all inspired by the balloon so frazier L.

It's cool. I thank you I love it. Can can you tell them excited thinking so cool here thinking for years. How do we get this out? There haven't had people to see that. It's not really that hard hard to do it. It's not that hard now. You're the have your bitcoin on a piece of paper. People don't realize it it can be a little piece of paper is the anyway we don't want him but it's about education and awareness you know. Where do they get the education? Where did they get the awareness? Where do they get the the knowledge of how so so why not make it real life? Yes exactly coolest part of what your mission is to make it more. You know I just want people to be more comfortable with it. Being around you know and it's you know it's not going anywhere so I think to answer the all answer the question <hes> real quick to <hes> so that not in the way. I'll sorry we're having some lighting leading issues yeah all right so I think that might my challenge for the listener would be <hes> you know have an open mind <hes> like I said you know things are changing quickly. This isn't going anywhere. BITCOIN already been around for ten years <hes> it's been through thick and thin and <hes> it's also worldwide and we're actually a little okay especially here in Utah. Were really really far behind. <hes> Zoli Yeah I saw behind well. Technology was well. I mean yeah well yeah and that's the thing that I'm always like why are we you know <hes> so again. That's I believe that we can kind of work nation. Yeah Yeah Knowledge Yeah exactly <hes> you know people in other parts of the world I mean when you talk about <hes> banking the bank I mean there's so many different different subjects that are just profound in this world in the space of so have an open mind you know if if I come up to you if your food truck who were your retail owner and I say hey do you accept bitcoin because I do ask that very often <hes> cow and Tuesday yes most of the time people say no or are they what surprised when they say you have.
