God or the Girl

This is one of Matt C. Abbott’s older columns, but I completely missed both the column and the series it discusses.

Considering the combined advocacy of Matt C. Abbott, Bryan Johnson and Brian Preston (and, if I recall correctly, Fr. Kish and Andrew Pavlis) I might actually seek out a reality series in order to sit down and watch it.



  1. Would you like me to tell you what happened at the end? 🙂

  2. I have the series recorded on DVD-R. I can pass it on to you, either directly or through Genna W.

    I have so far kept my opinions about it to myself, but must admit I was not so sure about some of the candidates from the beginning.

    Also, there seemed to be the attitude that once a guy went to the seminary, that was it. And yet, a lot of guys wash out. Maybe they should have a followup program on formation? But alas, I doubt it would be spicy enough to keep up the ratings!

  3. Matt Abbott’s website is now blocked by my Norton Internet Security software as a “sex/education” site. I have to disable it to view his articles. I guess he became too controversial?

  4. Hmm. Perhaps it’s a conspiracy… 🙂

  5. I agree with Fr. Joe that finality of the decision making was too forced. The guys can change their minds – wether they chose seminary or the girl.

    For an article about one of the guys who was on tv you can go to http://www.catholicreport.org/?id=179

    While the show had minor difficulties, I still was suprised to find it well done and an honor to Catholics and Catholicism in general.

  6. It is actually very interesting and enlightning. I have seen two episodes and will attempt to see more. It is much better than the usual contrived tripe of “reality” TV.
