About Jim Gaffigan

The comedian, Jim Gaffigan has shocked and dismayed some Catholic fans but they shouldn't be surprised at all.  Haven't we seen this before with Stephen Colbert?  In order to make it big in the entertainment industry people usually have to do  something to signal their bosses and peers that they are in agreement with the ways of Hollywood. This is not new.  Mr. Gaffigan is probably about to make a move up in his career and his Tweet is his way of  letting everyone know that the whole clean comedy Catholic family man shtick is just that, his act to fool the rubes.

So sad. It's part of the Nice Guy Syndrome Deacon James Toner described - One more Catholic coward who would rather identify as a nice guy than stand up for the truth. But what a tragedy to scandalize his innocent children. Millstone time!
