Matthew Fox is bitter because he is a former Dominican priest who was expelled from the Church by Cardinal Ratzinger in the '80s.
Here is an excerpt from one website:
Matthew will be lecturing on Pentecost Sunday May 15 and on Monday May 16 in Bad Herrenalb, Germany. He will proclaim the need for a new reformation and expound the choices before the church, while inviting the Pope to meet with him and others who like him were silenced or expelled. He will then travel to Wittenberg, where Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses at the Cathedral in 1517, and nail his “95 Theses for a Christianity for a New Millennium” at the same church.
I guess we should call this the Re-Reformation! :rolleyes:
By the way, his thesis that reads “God loves all of creation and science can help us more deeply penetrate and appreciate the mysteries and wisdom of God in creation. Science is no enemy of
true religion” is a rip-off from Pope John Paul II.
Edited to add one quote from JPII on science from a letter to To the **Reverend George V. Coyne, S.J. **Director of the Vatican Observatory: The unity we perceive in creation on the basis of our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord of the universe, and the correlative unity for which we strive in our human communities, seems to be reflected and even reinforced in what contemporary science is revealing to us. As we behold the incredible development of scientific research, we detect an underlying movement toward the discovery of levels of law and process which unify created reality and which at the same time have given rise to the vast diversity of structures and organisms which constitute the physical and biological, and even the psychological and sociological worlds.
