Mike Crumbie has a program that runs early on Saturday mornings. He has a heavy southern accent and big time ‘Amens’ :-)!

We prefer to call our accents “charming,” rather than “heavy”!
I didn’t read the whole interview yet, but I did get that evangelization starts with being joyous in your faith. Smart man.

And many parishes, I'm afraid, have become just like that "in the spirit of Vatican II" of making the church a "gathering space" -- even though it is still sacred space we don't act like it is
Who taught this guy that the church is a sacred building??? The Holy Spirit??? Or Something else???
Act 14:27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
The church is not a building...It is not an organization...It is not a pope or a magisterium...
The 'church' is people...Just regular people gathering together...Anywhere...Any other teaching is heresy...
This guy would have been far better off sticking with what God tryed to teach him in the scripture...
Anything but the scripture...

(†With God all things are possible.†)
So first the baptized must be taught their own faith, and then taught how to answer criticisms of that faith from non-Catholic Christians who are very misinformed about the faith just like I was. And a kind answer turns away wrath -- you've got to be filled with love and with charity, but you have to know the faith. When it comes to those who have no faith at all, you need to ask yourself, 'Do I know how to share the love of Christ with them? Can I convince them of their need for God and salvation?' Can you love them into the Kingdom? God does the converting, we don't convert anybody. Our job is to be the best Catholics we can be. My job is not to tell you what to believe but to explain the faith. Then you must decide what you believe."
