Keeping the Laity Stupid

Amy Welborn yesterday wrote about those in the Church who seek to "protect" the laity from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Today she posted a letter written to her from a priest, affirming her own experiences. One section of the letter in particular is great:

For these sorts of people, "The only way the laity can break free of the old church (and the CCC represents the old church), is to somehow communicate to them the mysterious (and indeterminate) nature of the faith so that they can truly be Christian adults, thus superceding allegiance to rote doctrine and truth. In other words, "keep them stupid and we can do what we want!""

Talk about cutting through the foggy-speak :-)

Go read the whole thing.
