This is what my Spanish lit (more like Let’s Constantly Attack the Church and Be Reaffirmed in Our Disdain for Catholicism through Spanish lit) prof is so very fond of saying, especially in regards to the history of the Church up to and including Franco’s dictatorship in Spain (which, incidentally, I have to PM Franze about… sigh). He claims the Church has always been on the side of the “haves”, among other things… :banghead:
Anyway, how can I address this? *Should *I address it? The class is full of (I suppose) either non-Cath Christians, agnostics, or athiests with at least one other Catholic that I know of, plus a self-proclaimed “anti-Catholic”, and the prof, who is (from what I can gather) a former Catholic turned sour. I’m not too versed in history, so should I start there? Or is there some way that you guys have found works best?
The guy’s also a biiiig fan of liberation theology, subscribes to the “Paul constructed the Church without regards for Christ’s plans” school, just today ridiculed the BVM, and has forgotten about the distinction between the Church and the sinners in the Church… just so you know how hopeless the cause is… :nope:
