We avoid the Cabin in the Woods, know that anyone wearing a hockey mask in June is probably not our friend, and aren’t quite sure if vampires should sparkle in the sun and attend high school classes. The things that scare us help to define our culture, but the word “monster” has many meanings. How are we called to understand our First Principle, and recognize the inherent worth and dignity of each individual when that individual scares us? Do monsters really exist?
