But they seem convinced that traditional Catholicism does not evoke an intimacy with the Divine.  So, they are trying to prepackage in some of the most absurd ways an  experience of God.  It's like they are going to steal  the fire and bring it to Man.  The problem is Prometheus is a myth about a guy who succeeded in stealing from the gods and got severely punished.  These guys are trying to co-opt the real God's revelation of Himself to each of us and horn in on our own relatiionship with Him.  

It all stinks of Karl Rahner if I had to place it on one person's influence.   Pride of intellect with a very weak sense of faith, if anyone has ever read some of his "Prayers for a Lifetime"  you'll see what I mean.    

Gerard, that is the most simple, succinct and accurate way of putting it that I've ever come across. Thanks for that!
