But as catholics, we should not judge guilt by association. After all the same logic tosses Jesus to the curb, no? What, HIM? He dined with tax collectors and protitutes! He spoke to Samaritans (on purpose even). He came to the aid of a woman CAUGHT in adultery....
We don't reject the ideas of a person because of who he associates with. Evaluate the ideas themselves and accept or reject them based on the ideas themselves.
Again, I haven't come across "Just Faith" so I can't comment. But if it is, as alleged, a liberation theology contamination of the faith, I gave you a secret decoder ring above to be able to tell.
This is not a good analogy and I don't believe it can be applied here. In Jezreel's case, he has a consistent and continuing alliance with dissenting ex-priests and nuns, and dissident groups, which wish to first and foremost bring a humanistic approach to social justice, relegating the need for salvation (which the true social justice teaching of the Church considers primary) to a lesser role.

Bishops and priests have also spoken at or been associated with CTA.
So, again, you're reducing this to ad hominem attacks rather than responding the the original question about the JustFaith program itself.
Have you experienced JustFaith? Do you have any personal knowledge of it from your parish or diocese?
Oh yes, and that’s a sad commentary for the USCCB who initially sponsored CTA, but later realized that the political motivation behind it was not in alignment with church teaching. They eventually distanced themselves from it after complaints were investigated and some bishops removed the program from their diocese. BTW, Hans Kung, the theologian who was censured by the Vatican for his flawed theology was the one whose ideology CTA embraced.
I have talked to people who have registered in JustFaith (a very expensive program, I've been told) as one local liberal parish in town is pushing it. One woman I spoke with dropped the course after the 4th week, so concerned was she in the reading material they recommended.
You have been provided with many links written by those who have investigated it. Feel free to ignore the facts presented to you by those who have seen with their own eyes what this progressive political group, JustFaith is all about. It may be your option to ignore the warnings of those who have examined the material and determined this program is unworthy and heterodox.
