Skip to comments.what non-believers believe [Catholic Caucus]

"I have yet to let Jesus enter my life, but I admire Warren," writes Alan Wolfe in a New Republic essay.
Well you didn't expect a New Republic writer to be a born-again Christian, did you?
Just one thing: Wolfe is the director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Jesuit-run Boston College.
Now why would an allegedly Catholic school choose an agnostic to direct a center on religion and public life?
But wait, you say. Is it fair to conclude, from that one sentence, that Wolfe is a non-believer? Maybe he was making some subtle point. Let's fast-forward to the end of the article, and find:
If a better balance between religion and politics is to come about, it will because of what religious leaders do, and not because of what non-believers such as myself want to happen.
OK, let's ask the question again: Why would an allegedly Catholic school choose an agnostic to direct a center on religion and public life?
Surprised .... not!
Because the premise is what non-caucus members believe, this thread does not qualify as a “caucus.”
Boston College is not a Catholic college.
It hasn’t been for decades.
And this should be enough evidence for any who have doubted that fact.
What non-believers believe - well nothing - otherwise they would be believers.
So much for diversity.
UNbelievers in God believe there will be a day of judgement when their good will outweigh their bad. Funny, I don’t get off for the speeding ticket because I didn’t speed the whole week before.
Often wonder what sustains non-believers through tough times. My faith in God has gotten me through some difficult trials.
The opposite, fear of ________. And it’s really a horrible place to be, because as much as faith gives peace, it rips it away.
The sad part is that I realize this and I live in it too much myself.
