A short post today, a little anecdote,………….Ahhh,…So it happened again, calm, cool, and collected Marco turned into Optimusmastro and needed to cut a WWE style promo on the Jack T Chick fanclub. I recently bought Catholicism and Fundamentalism by Karl Keating, (Again) and low and behold inside the book was inserted a little comic book by these Chick devotees.
My friends, Christian formation begins when one encounters the Risen Christ, and then seeks to understand Reason in the light of Faith and vice versa. What that means is that your brain isn’t handicapped by refusing to search through the natural order of reason why things are the way they are! I know that there are many a good Fundamentalist with a sincere Faith in Christ and God bless them! We have some differences, but ultimately we pray that they search for Truth. Some as well meaning Christians do more with less!
As a Catholic, our formation begins with philosophy, and proper understanding of what we can know about things in nature. Revelation builds upon philosophy. My dear protestant friends, kindly keep an open mind, remember any authentic dialogue, we need FUNdamentalists who are cool, not fundaMENTALists who are completely insane and devoid of any coherence!
St Thomas Aquinas,……………………………..ora pro nobis!
