Pope offers Anglicans place in Catholicism

The Protestant Reformation, in retrospect, was a movement to place God in the hands of wo/man, whilst the mind of wo/man was being interned within the diocese of capitalism and nationalism. In this, the choice between God and Mammon was resolved by allowing the former to subsist within the latter.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
