I can see there was a thread about him a couple of years ago. It has since been locked now, otherwise I would have written this there.
I wanted to start up a discussion on Milo. I wondered what other Catholics, those who know of him, think of him?
Personally I have warmed to him more recently. I feel he has shifted to talking a lot more about the Catholic faith. At the beginning, when he rose to fame, he was very much a right-wing provocator. Sure he identified as Catholic, but I felt like that was just to annoy the left, particularly the gay community on the left, and his main focus was campaigning for Trump and making fun of liberals.
I believe ever since he was practically destroyed by the media and kicked off the main social media platforms (except for Youtube) for what he once said during a late night podcast/chat about older men’s relations with younger buy, he has cooled off a bit. I think he’s had a bit more time to think, and he talks about Catholicism a lot more than he used to. I think the long interview he did with Michael Voris almost a year ago, where he was pressed on his gay lifestyle and basically said he knows it’s wrong, he knows there’s a better way, but he isn’t there yet, was interesting. Despite living a gay lifestyle and even being married, he never advocates it or promotes it as being okay. These are his personal demons he hasn’t been able to beat for now.
Yes, he still has an ego and loves to get attention, and yes, the language he uses is often still rude and he likes to keep making stupid sexual jokes, all things I don’t approve of, but as I say, I’ve warmed to him. I sympathise with him more and think his general message, particularly about the Catholic faith, tries to be positive. He’s certainly a very intelligent person and when he channels it in the right way, things he says or writes can be very informative.
He certainly isn’t my go to guy when it comes to watching or listening to someone talking about Catholicism, but listening to him now doesn’t bother me as much as perhaps it used to. I might even recommend some clips of his for other Catholics to watch, or at least, fragments from them.
