Religious Trauma Healing

It was pity to see a bar row spoil a couple's little tête-à-tête in Rome yesterday (the couple presumably belonged to one of these modern Catholic social movements, Comunione e Liberazione). A thirty-something man unleashed a succession of uppercut punches after arguing with a younger man over a “boorish” (coatto!) and offensive behavior against a woman. The poor little couple left quickly. It was a mix of her being embarrassed because of what her boyfriend had been saying about the necessity for people to present themselves perfect before God (I'm pretty sure it came from one of the epistles of the New Testament) and her trauma for having come face to face with the sheer brutality of life.
