Thought for the Day

“In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.”

George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

 

The papal confidant and Jesuit, Fr. Antonio Spadaro has now turned to claiming that Pope Francis has the power to make 2+2=5.  I am not kidding:

Theology is not #Mathematics. 2 + 2 in #Theology can make 5. Because it has to do with #God and real #life of #people

  1. Fr. – Thank you for trying to give this a context. However, I didn’t understand the Spadaro quote the first time and I still don’t. What is he referring to in terms of Theology being able to say 2 + 2 = 5? Sigh…
