I just read this article about the Catholicity of Mark Wahlberg. In it, the article states, "The Catholic actor takes his religion seriously." Then it goes on to say, "....which stands in an antechamber of the master bedroom he shares with girlfriend Rhea Durham and their two kids..."

It doesn't sound like he takes his religion seriously to me. If he did, then he would not be living with his girlfriend and he would not have two children out of wedlock. Last I checked co-habitation and fornication were against the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Now, I don't intend to put down Mark Wahlberg. He may be a great guy. But just because you own religious items and hang them up in your bedroom doesn't make you serious about your faith!

If he really took his faith seriously, he would be striving to live out his faith fully and in contrast to his surrounding environment of secular-run Hollywood.

"The Catholic actor takes his religion seriously"

Sorry, but I don't buy it!

If you want to see a Hollywood actor who takes his faith seriously check out Eduardo Verástegui, the star of the movie Bella, who left his former life of stardom to form his own company, Metanoia Films. "A company committed to projects that entertain, engage and inspire."
