  •  If the church had been truly concerned (0+ / 0-)

    about the plight of the native populations in terms of poverty, they wouldn't have crushed their native beliefs and forced them (literally) to accept catholicism. It's like "believe what we believe or we'll kill you" followed by "now that you have converted to our faith, we have compassion for you and we want to liberate you!"

      If you read from above, you would have seen that the Catholic Church was against liberation theology. because it condemned the church as part of the systemic problem. Now going into my diatribe on liberalism, it all connects. Surprisingly, the Catholic Church has a strong foundation in rationalism, going back to Augustine. As the morale center of the faith, the church has now recognized a proponent of liberation theology as the voice of God.

      •  The church has no such foundation (0+ / 0-)

        in "rationalism".  It's foundation is in promoting superstition and the selling of mythologies as realities.. all for the purposes of power.
