By Jon|August 29, 2012|Catholicism, Compromise/Dissent/Heresy, Education, Enlightenment, Faith and Reason, Religion|

Where do we end up after years and years of downplaying and making theology deliberately more vague and humanist?

The head of the supreme tribunal in Rome, Cardinal Raymond Burke, has stated that students of Catholic universities have the right to know which of their teachers have signed the oath of fidelity to the Church's teaching.

By Jon|June 8, 2012|Catholicism, Compromise/Dissent/Heresy, Enlightenment, Modern Philosophy, News Commentary, Religion|
