Tom Merton remix

I suppose the most shocking thing about American culture is
the corruption of spirituality into flippancy and cynicism;
of intelligence into sophistry;
of dignity into petty vanity and theatrical self-display;
of charity into disgusting concupiscence,
and of faith into sentimentality or puerile atheism.
