The Daily Poll: How Real Are the Real O’Neals?

The Daily Catch - published on 04/20/16

In pondering the ABC sitcom “The Real O’Neals”, Philip Kosloski writes:

One could say that the O’Neals are all-too “real” as they show us what happens when a pastor does not practice what he preaches, and a family does not fully and deeply live its faith. The producers, whether they wish to or not, might actually be doing Catholics a favor by showing us what our lives are like — and what the world sees — when faith is hollow and without substance. It shows us how silly the idea of faith is, if it is not incorporated into every aspect of our lives.

What do you think?
