A Favorite Richard Rohr Quote

“All societies are addicted to themselves and create deep codependency on them.  They are shared agreed-upon addictions in every culture and every institution.  They are often the hardest to heal because they do not look like addictions because we have all agreed to be compulsive about the same things and blind to the same problems.  The Gospel exposes those lies in every culture:  the American addiction to oil, war, and empire; the church’s addiction to its own exceptionalism; the poor person’s addiction to powerlessness and victimhood; the white person’s addiction to superiority; the wealthy person’s addiction to entitlement.”
