“Inclusion” philosophy = apostasy


Q. When is a church no longer a church?
A. When it’s the scene of a Hindu procession.


Ceuta, Spain ~ A video of the procession shows people clapping and taking photos as the statue of Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu god, processed through the church past statues of Catholic saints toward the altar. It was even in front of the tabernacle at one point, which houses consecrated hosts that the Catholic Church teaches are the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.

Seriously? If you have so little reverence for the traditions of your own church why even bother? The Spanish bishop for the diocese did apologize for the event, and the priest who allowed it resigned from his position as Vicar General. But of course, who are we to judge?

(T)he bishop said Hindu beliefs don’t need to be “rebuked” and that wasn’t the point of his statement. It’s unclear whether the priest, Father Juan José Mateos Castro, will remain in his position at that parish, Our Lady of Africa.

I guess the bishop forgot that God spent most the Old Testament rebuking those who worshiped false gods. This nonsense reminds me of the German church that hosted “A Mass for Peace” a few years back – an interfaith event to bring Christianity and Islam together – in the Memorial Church of the Reformation. I have news for these wishy-washy Christians who apparently aren’t too familiar with scripture, our faith makes a rather unequivocal claim to exclusivity ~

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life:
no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
~ John 14:6


The Dominican sisters at San Domenico School in San Anselmo, CA clearly skipped right over that rather central-to-Christianity verse. They’re even more open-minded than that Spanish padre ~ San Anselmo’s San Domenico School creates stir by removing Catholic statues. All in the name of “inclusion” of course ~


Amy Skewes-Cox, who heads San Domenico School’s board of trustees, said the relocation and removal of some of the school’s 180 religious icons was “completely in compliance” with San Domenico’s new strategic plan, approved unanimously by the board of trustees and the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael last year. She said at least 18 icons remain, including a statue of St. Dominic at the center of the campus.


(How liberal of them to leave the school’s namesake in place!)

I’m not Catholic so don’t have quite the same reverence for saints and their statues, but I can certainly understand the sentiments of those who do – as Michael Voris explains them in the following video. These statues are visible symbols of the Catholic faith. By removing them the school is tacitly rejecting that faith ~

This apostasy appears to be a conscious decision ~

Mirza Khan, the school’s director of philosophy, ethics and world religions, said, “The Dominican teaching philosophy is not to teach there is only one truth. It is to foster conversation, to intentionally invite in participants that have different perspectives in a very open-ended process of philosophical and spiritual inquiry. That has been a long-standing part of the Dominican tradition.”


It’s a pretty safe bet that Saint Dominic, the original “Dominican” would take issue with Kahn (or is it “Con”?) over her “teaching philosophy. His entire life was dedicated to only One transcendent Truth.


All worldviews are not equal. There’s only one that’s TRUE. Which makes all the others FALSE. As Voris states, these “churches” can’t have it both ways. They either need to embrace Christianity – or be honest about the fact that they’re deliberately rejecting it.
