The guy is an idiot.
Ping for later
And Catholics here on FR keep wanting to dispute how liberal the Church is.
Third in the pecking order, peddling liberation theology.
But the Church isn’t socialist. Noooooo.
CLASSICAL LIBERAL...as in our founding fathers...YES I AGREE!
Yep - I’m sure God would throw himself out of our schools and government. :)
I served as an altar boy back when the Mass was celebrated in Latin...can still recite “the sucipiot”. Three years later the church abandoned 2000 years of history and adopted English for the Mass. That, and because I couldn’t afford the indulgences at the going rate, I left the church and am now a card-carrying agnostic.
In a way he is right, but his application is completely wrong.
Heaven is a socialist utopia, no private property, no rich and poor, not upper class and lower class, etc.
The problem is that the only person who’s just enough and good enough to be worthy of running such a place is God.
Earthly socialism is trying to establish this utopia on earth with man running such a place. Hence it places man in a position where only God deserves to be, and is idolatry.
Let’s look at the issue without blinders on.
God gives man what he needs. (a conservative action)
Lucifer(Satan,The Devil, whatever) gives man what he wants. (a liberal action).
The conclusion is obvious.
God wants to steal our money against our will and spend it on government programs designed to keep people dependent on government?
God wants abortions on demand?
God wants the ACLU to remove God from all public sector institutes?
These are what liberals want, so if God was a liberal...
I think not.....or Sodom and Gomorrah would still be around.
Congratulations on a religious thread that approaches 100 responses. I am happy to help.
I don’t think you are talking about the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
