"He is Risen," the supertitle to the trailer for the Milo Yiannopoulos "comeback video," promoted on Easter Sunday, wasn't referring to Christ.
It was referring to Milo Yiannopoulos.
In the thirty-seven second trailer, we also see Yiannopoulos dressed twice as a Catholic priest, including in the final shot.
Of course, one of the recent controversies swirling around the ex-Breitbart journalist was the question of whether he had or had not been abused by a Catholic priest.
"The Bitch is Back." Funny.
"He is Risen" (on Easter Sunday). Sick.
It's true that Yiannopoulos has done a huge amount of good. Among other things, he's given articulate and powerful defenses of the Catholic faith - much better than most contemporary bishops, for example. And, of course, he has claimed to be a believing Catholic.
I have no reason to doubt that he is.
But he obviously has huge problems. And, no, I'm not, here, specifically referring to his sex life.
As everyone knows, I've strongly defended Yiannopoulos in public.
In general, his enemies are my enemies. They're your enemies.
But Yiannopoulos needs to get his personal issues resolved. If he doesn't, his ongoing implosion will greatly hurt the causes that he claims to represent.
