About Me

A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

"We need to keep trying the same thing until we get different results."

In my youth people looked up to the Jesuits, not so much the case these days and this guy is a good example why.

Madrid, Nov 20, 2008 / 06:08 pm (CNA).- The Superior General of the Jesuits, Father Adolfo Nicolas, said this week he was disappointed that Liberation Theology has not received a “vote of confidence,” and he said the controversial approach should be given more time to mature. (Because it's worked out so well, NOT!!)

In an interview with El Periodico, Father Nicolas said Liberation Theology “is a courageous and creative response to an unbearable situation of injustice in Latin America. As with any theology, it needs years to mature. It’s a shame that it has not been given a vote of confidence and that soon its wings will be cut before it learns to fly. It needs more time.” ("If we just keep trying the same things we'll get different results." Noted.)

During the interview, Father Nicolas admitted that the Jesuits have diminished in number (Good news!!) but he said the Society of Jesus is still “the most theologically and doctrinally visible group” (Bad news!!) in the Church, and therefore, “It’s only natural that we get more attention,” he said alluding to the supposed vigilance of the Society by the Pope. (Yeah, my more rebellious child gets more of my attention too.

Asked about the feeling many have that the Jesuits “look down upon other orders,” Father Nicolas said, “This is a weakness we have and it is quite common. This comes from the fact that in the Society we have always insisted on the concern for quality and in-depth formation. (Translation: "We have a lot to be modest about.") The problem is that we are human beings, and we don’t realize that that capability has been given to us, it’s not because of our pretty face.”

Regarding the hostility of the Spanish government towards the Church in some matters related to social policy, Father Nicolas said, “Because I am used to the climate of moderate secularism that is present in Japan, where I lived for many years, I find the Socialist government to be, with all due respect, immature, in the sense that unemployment, educational and immigration problems are so great that I think time is being wasted in worrying about relations with the Church.” (He might want to check on how priests of the Church has fubared things in the past. There's a REASON an old Spanish saying states, "...half the time priests are leading a mob, the other half they're running from it.")

He said it was “possible” that the Church in Spain has “a tendency to be reprimanding.” “I’ve always found it bothersome and incomprehensible that a priest lectures his people. What right does he have to do that? It’s a mistake,” Father Nicolas said. (Yeah, your attitude works so well here in the States. Check out Pelosi, Biden, Schwarzenegger, Kennedy, etc. on their blatant abortion support. Leave it to an idiot like this to feel he's okay telling a government how to spend it's money, but telling the pew sitters they need to straighten up & fly right is wrong.)
