Along with an extended discussion and focus on the Real Presence, it's importance and promulgating a greater acceptance of its Truth, I am also going to continue on this theme of the value we place in ideas, objects, practices, and people. For this post, I am going to focus on a few words from Pope Francis that he said on the plane ride back from his African trip (all taken from the National Catholic Reporter - link below)
No God in Absolute Truth
Fundamentalism is a sickness that exists in all religions. We Catholics have some, not just some, so many, who believe they have the absolute truth and they move forward with calumnies, with defamation and they hurt (people), they hurt. And, I say this because it’s my Church, also us, all of us. It must be combatted. Religious fundamentalism isn’t religious. Why? Because God is lacking. It’s idolatrous
Based upon this direct quote (as all quotes here are), and then looking at the highlighted parts, my critical thinking skills suggest the following about Pope Francis's values: he doesn't value the knowledge of Absolute Truth as a good thing because, to him, it lacks God rather than being the link to God. This is fundamentally anathema to the Catholic worldview, but explains why he is so perplexing to so many Catholics - He doesn't view the world through a Catholic POV. It is also why he hates Catholics that have a Catholic POV.
