Lucia No one expects the Spanish Inquisition

When I posted a while back on Cardinal Pell's insistence that all Catholic educators in Australia make a Profession of Faith, I commented that the same sort of thing wouldn't go astray here in NZ (on another thread). That seems to be putting it lightly if the following report is anything to go by.

A Report on the Crisis in the Catholic Church in New Zealand

I had eleven years of Catholic education, in schools run by the Sisters of Mercy, before I apostatised in my mid-teens. Reading the report, it shows quite clearly that people like me barely had a chance to stay as practising Catholics. I remember quite clearly RE in fifth form consisting of drawing pictures of various Bible scenes. No one took the subject seriously.

No wonder there are people like confused socialist Catholic here, and no wonder Moonbats like Joan Chittister are being invited to speak here. Forget about an inquiry, I think NZ needs a full-scale Inquisition.

Saint Vincent of Lerins is your man Lucyna.

When people come up with novelties

(1)check it against scripture

(2) then see how the fathers of the church interpreted it

(3) and ask has is it been held throughout the church through the ages?
