The real St. Francis of Assisi

Talking things out, acceptance, tolerance, speaking always of love and gentle things. These things aren't bad in and of themselves, but with no masculine message counterbalancing these ideas, we have been being tolerant and accepting of things we shouldn't be tolerant of. Always 'love one another' and no 'preach unto all nations' leaves an anemic and weak Church.

I understand and agree. I also liked his analogy of the dollar bill and the four quarters, being equal but different. Believe it or not, I don't disagree with everything he says LOL I want to find that "masculinity series" so I can watch it again, if I can do so without blowing my top. I think this one here about St. Francis is rather ridiculous. He points out the "feminized" St. Francis. He could have said hippie or tree-hugger.. but he dismisses it as "feminine." There are many men who are hippies.  And there are many women who are not.
