The youth disappoints me….

with 2 comments

In more ways than one. These aren’t scenes from some pop-concert, as might be expected, but the most misleadingly named World Youth Day being held at Sydney.

Update: To elaborate briefly, what dispppoints me is that young people are embracing a religous hogwash with fervor one expects them to associate with a say, Christina Aguilera (or whoever the latest fad is), concert. One worries about the future if people are falling prey to piety so early.

  1. What disappoints you most? The fact that they’ve paralyzed Sydney (but you’re not in Sydney), that they’re making a tamasha of Catholicism, or that they’re draining the Aussie exchequer? Or, is it your old age showing?

  2. @partho: the old age is showing, obviously 🙂
    …but its mainly because the tamasha involves religion, that I am most disappointed.

    It does not worry me when the elderly find piety, but when the youth slave themselves to religion, it bothers me.
