Arrogance abounds in this statement from the Bishop of Lancaster.

The Right Reverend Patrick O'Donoghue claims that graduates are spreading scepticism and sowing dissent. Instead of following the Church's teaching they are allegedly "hedonistic", "selfish" and "egocentric".

These intellectual trends have resulted in a fragmented society that marginalizes God, with many people mistakenly thinking they can live happy and productive lives without him.

I won't even bother arguing against this point; you know how to use a computer, so can probably think for yourselves.

The Bishop did make one worthwhile point:

However, every human endeavor[sic] has a dark side, due to original sin and concupiscence. In the case of education, we can see its distortion through the widespread dissemination of radical scepticism, positivism, utilitarianism and relativism.

Education can sometimes be but education in a single opinion. Sometimes it is no different than a religious "education". If I were to claim in this post that a proper education is automatically, certainly 100% better than an uneducated religious upbringing, it would be undefensible.

He does go on to spoil his brief moment of clarity, though, with more unbalanced hyperbole. A report, "Fit for Mission? Church" that he produced examines the current problems facing the Church and is designed to "enable Catholic men, women and children to resist the pressures to compromise, even abandon, the truths of the Catholic faith", emphasis mine.

Truths, eh? I can name hundreds of people who have led happy and productive lives without "him", which blows that unequivocal claim right out of the water at the outset. Fail.
