Why We Secretly Love Cancel Culture

The Roman empire was quite sophisticated, and not so different from our modern western culture. They found entertainment in watching gladiators fight to the death in the coliseum. We don’t do that! …Or do we?

What’s our Coliseum? Cancel Culture.

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary examines the root of the desire to see people “cancelled”, as well as why its antithetical to the mercy of Christ.
