Now and then it happens that a student gets "stuck" in a class in which the professor is more interested in ideology than he is in facts. If he gets to paste a bad grade on you for dissenting, he wins. Feeding him back his own nonsense is the thing to do. Don't let him exult over you. After you're safely out of his reach, you can say what you want. But people like this guy sounds are impervious to competing opinions anyway.
Hey Ridgerunner, I don't know what happened to my post but thank you for your help. I am still going to be taking the guy's class, apparently there was no way for me to change courses. But then again I could recognize some of dissenting views(but not sure how far dissenting he could be). Hope people would come to me (after coming to them) to help them understand dogmatic theology and not heretical or even semi-heretical theology.
I appreciate that. The joke is on me, though. I was finally getting down to actually giving a fuller explanation of what the Social Encyclicals are about regarding income and wealth, but when I tried to post it, the thread was closed. Oh well. Another time, perhaps.
I am so unskilled technically, that I didn't see these.
jcaquon. Things are fine. I did not realize there were no ridges (hills) on Guam. But, my friend, you have palm trees, tropical breezes and the ocean! Not bad at all.
I do care about those with cancer. It's a terrible disease, dreaded by all.
Cancer affects everyone since it is a slow destruction of the body's defenses in deteriorating way. My father died of cancer. He had served on the USS Bennington before he retired in 1956 and acquired the taste for tobacci or cigarettes. It killed him at age 68. We share and shows that we care. Bless you in all you write.
I might not be your best candidate. I did have a relative who died of cancer, but that was a long time ago and nobody has been touched by cancer since. I don't have a problem with joining the group,but I'm not sure I would have anything helpful to say. But it's okay.
