Dershowitz's Warning Against Honduran Cardinal
#11
Yeah, we don't need another postmodernist like that rat bastard Leo XIII. Don't you morons know that liberalism is an essential element of traditional Catholic doctrine? Trivial concerns about 'justice' and 'the common good' have no place in Catholic thought. What we need in the Catholic Church today, as Ayn Rand has so well shown, is a reassertion of the primacy of selfishness and a renewed defense of that most persecuted minority, big business. This defense is, after all, what is demanded of us by the virtue of charity. The poor and the weak, on the other hand, deserve whatever they get. The looters can complain all they like about 'injustice' and 'exploitation,' but they should remember how lucky they are that we don't just through human trash like them in the garbage where they belong. No Christian should give a second thought to wastes of space like them, not until they start pulling their weight at least.

LOL Best parody post that I've read in a while Crusading Philologist.

Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga looks young but he is 70, being born on Dec. 29, 1942.

Obviously someone is looking at him cause there are Wikipedia pages on him in Spanish, French and English.

Rodríguez was the Vatican's spokesperson with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank on the issue of Third World debt, and has encouraged countries to give development aid.

He has said that a politician who publicly supports abortion excommunicates himself, and that it's not question of receiving Communion or not, since he has already done serious harm to the communion of faith of the Church.

In 2009, Cardinal Rodríguez agreed with the Pope that condoms cannot be of any real benefit in the fight against AIDS.

Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga, in a May 2002 interview with the Italian-Catholic publication 30 Giorni, claimed that in order to divert attention from the Israeli-Palestinian crisis; Jews influenced the media to exploit the current controversy regarding sexual abuse by Catholic priests. This provoked outrage from the anti-Defamation League.

Plus he pissed off Dershowitz.  Another feather in his cap for that.  Grin

There is a difference between marxists "social justice" types and Church Social Doctrine. Not everyone that speaks about economic justice is marxist.

It'd be nice to have a Pope who was both a traditionalist and concerned about social justice (in the Catholic, non-Marxist, non-liberation theology) sense.

I don't care much to use the term social justice considering the usual meaning attached to it.  Besides, I've always thought that social justice thrived wherever justice was lacking.  In other words, when people are no longer just, social injustice runs rampant and soon, many social justice programs are implemented in a vain attempt to diminish the ill effects of personal vices.

It seems to me that the most effective way for the government to promote social justice is simply to pass laws that tend towards making vice unprofitable and virtue profitable.
