What is Foolish Wisdom »
Foolish Wisdom is a fortnightly column written by Bernard Toutounji and published in The Record Catholic Newspaper, in the Archdiocese of Perth, Australia and in Ignitum Today, an American Catholic opinion website.
Foolish Wisdom takes a contemporary issue within news, culture or faith and examines it through the lens of reason and Judeo-Christian principles.
The subline, “A Foolishness Wiser Than Human Wisdom” is taken from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians where he states that the cross of Christ is foolishness to many, but that even the foolishness of God has a power and strength beyond the common wisdom of mankind. Paul asks “Where are any of our thinkers today?” and we could ask the same question. We live in an age of great advantage, but we also live in an age that has seemingly lost the ability to think with reason and logic. Ours is an era of feelings divorced from objectivity. Foolish Wisdom seeks to ask questions about anything in the culture that may be contrary to reason.
