  • 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?

      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.

        Did a little research on Italian blogs, and YES, they are, but it is not flattering:

        It commemorates 500 years of the "pseudo-reformation" of Martin Luther.

        This crucifix is for us a book with hieroglyphics of might and power, to enable us to read in a second, at one glance, what it otherwise would take us five minutes to read in the Bible. We have often instructed poor slaves who cannot read. We have told them what Jesus has done for them, arid shown them the crucifix, and thus appealed to their eyes and ears in far less time than by any other method." ~ Rt. Rev. John Timon, Prefect to the Republic of Texas

            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,

                so it is, I thought someone at the Vatican had really gotten brave.

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

                  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.

                    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 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.

                          Who needs reconciliation, mutual dialogue, understanding, forgiveness. Gouging each other's eyes out is more fun. Carry on, CARM!

                            Mutual dialogue, understanding, forgiveness is a worthy pursuit no matter what area of life: be it theology or going to the grocery store. This though is not in contradiction to holding fast to what one believes. I can disagree with you without slandering you. In fact, I asked a few questions of something you posted on another thread. There was nothing in my questions intended to gouge out your eyes.
