Sugar-Coating God

Got an email from one of the youth ministers I work with. She said:
Hey everyone, check out this article from time magazine. it's talking about the problems with "sugar-coating" religion and how it really doesn't work in the long run. it's pretty interesting: Sugar-Coating God Keep pressing on and teaching the youth the Truth. They need it!
The article doesn't mention Catholic programs specifically, but we've all seen such religion-lite programs. I consider Life Teen to have latched on to this Scripture based method years ago. Every Life Night program I've seen for years is Scripture and Catechism of the Catholic Church based, with enough music and activities around the edges to make it interesting, but with a core talk which is all no holds barred Truth.
