    Luther to be portrayed on RCC postage stamps?

    This comes from a legitimate news source so it can't be immediately dismissed as "fake", but it still seems pretty incredulous. Is it a true story, and what does it say about changes in RCC dogma in the near future?

    Catholics have told me that simply telling a Catholic they are wrong is uncharitable. Of course, these same Catholics insist that if they tell others they are wrong, that is good, noble, and just.

    It is important in the Catholic worldview in this era to take on the role of victim. That way they can excuse themselves from ever paying any attention to what any of their critics have to say. It is a defense mechanism.

    I find the interactions with Father Don over on CA... fascinating. He's basically saying that Roman Catholics who slander Luther and don't join in ecumenism are not being obedient to Rome: He states, " a dicastery can issue directives that are, absolutely, binding; they are dispositive." Favorite comment from Father Don so far on this (in response to a fellow Roman Catholic): "Well, then all you are left with is your opinion. As a priest and a theologian, such uninformed opinions have neither value nor interest."

    Fascinating.

    I haven't logged in at CA for quite some time but you are right about Father Don, fascinating, I used to follow his posts, really admire and respect the man. Maybe it's time to log in at CA and start following his posts again.

    Sounds like the Magisterium is pursuing a policy of ecumenism, if the Luther stamp is already in the works, can a Calvin stamp and a Knox stamp be that far down the road for the RCC Post Office?

    I am concerned by the news, but will wait to see.

    That's sort of witty I guess, but Frank has shown a much more conciliatory tone toward Lutherans anyhow. The RCC has changed its dogmas quite a bit since the Luther-Eck debates,

    most are confused or outraged: but not here.

    Everything in fine
    Putting on the act amongst outsiders is a vital part of being a Catholic or cultist. Appearance is waaaaaaaay more important than substance in Roman Catholicism, which is quite ironic when you think about it.
