What is this world coming to?
By the very definition, a monastery is one of spiritual calm and contemplation. Inhabited by monks who eschew the outside world in its entirety, monasteries are places of quiet servitude. It’s not without certain irony that a proposed monastery in Wyoming – near Yellowstone National Park – is being met with opposition by ranchers who view the monks as a threat to their way of life.
Ranchers are afraid the monks will threaten their way of life? What is their way of life? Heathenism?
