Connecting Chesterton, CSI and Waugh


  1. I haven't seen the episode being discussed yet, but from what I've seen of the show Grissom was raised Catholic, but has been an atheist for years. However, there have been a number of hints that he is a "fish on the line." A lot of mystery shows have a raised-Catholic-turned-atheist main character, then around the second season there's a storyline involving a priest accused of a crime, and the character starts drifting back towards God and the Church again, although not enough to stop having sex outside of marriage (Jordan Cavanaugh on Crossing Jordan, Jack Malone on Without a Trace, and now Gil Grissom on CSI).

  2. Of course. Hollywood has long ago pledged allegiance to the Sexual Revolution. It would - literally - rather die a bloody death than betray the Revolution in any way. Hence the script writers would make sure Grissom never returned to the Church, even if their lives were on the line.

    And that's no exageration. not one bit.

    Hail Gilbert! Hail Belloc!
