How about by posting what Luther said over every Church door in the country, protestant or Catholic: "Reason is a whore and can be made to lie in any bed."

Gene,

The best way to "commerate" the Protestant Revolt is to ignore it and call out fake catholics who honor it

Gene said...

TJM, I disagree...although I think the Reformation is the worst thing to happen to the Church (with the possible exception of Vat II),
we need to acknowledge it and try not to make the same errors again. What we are seeing now is, in many ways, reminiscent of what went on in the sixteenth century...a Papacy run amuk, Bishops abusing their privilege (million dollar houses, Porsche 911's, mistresses and boy friends), theological error in many factions within the Church, and a contempt for the everyday, average Catholic. Ignoring it won't make it any better. Luther was right, human reason...human initiative, concupiscence are the root of it all.

"Luther was right, human reason...human initiative, concupiscence are the root of it all."

...said the man who, born with the taint of Original Sin and who uses his REASON and INITIATIVE to condemn popes and bishops and not a few priests.

I am nearly blinded by the irony!

You two make an exceptional pair.

Carlton, I was not using "Reason" in the strictest sense of the word. I was using empirical data and common sense.

Carlton said...

The milieu in which one uses empirical data and commons sense" is REASON.

One REASONS using data to arrive at a conclusion.

The irony glows brighter.
