The heart of man is in the heart of the Church

David L. Schindler has a sound and consistent criticism of liberal societies that can hardly be ignored by any discerning reader of his. Does the Church know the heart of man, or does Liberalism? This is a crucial question, and one that stems from an understanding of man and the world that can only be received as a gift -- a gift that is at the heart of the Church.

Why Are Catholics Obsessed With A Nietzsche That Did Not Exist??

This book looks like utter Catholic boilerplate. But I am interested in how grave matters of intellectual history like Nietzsheanism are handled. It is not because I am a fan of the mad philosopher. Exactly the opposite. Well if the treatment in the chapter on the "Death of God" in the Academy is illustrative, it is with vast creativity not related to fact. You see Catholic intellectuals love the mad philosopher because he is someone that they assume at least sizeable portion of people will not know much about, but will be suspicious of reflexively. Perfect! . Thus if they say, as this lame- brain Schindler does, that he was critical of ideas of the "liberal Enlightenment" a lot of poorly educated people like Michael Sean Winters will believe it. Who care that he dedicate Human, All Too Human to Voltaire! Indeed, the guy who used to serve a great chicken sandwich on Focaccia at Kramerbooks thinks this guy is the cat's meow or doggy's howl for theologians, and "changed his life" . That Nietzsche was not critical of the liberal Enlightenment but of a whole raft of very revanchist conservative academic Kantians and Hegelians escapes the purview of flakes like this author. No wonder he is a theologian- scholar for the Pope. John Paul Center. What is it with these right-wing Catholics and Friedrich Nietzsche?? To hear them tell it there are vast numbers of fans of the old crazy guy. Me, I never encounter anyone who likes him. It is just a foil, or a sop for the tendentious theories they spin. It is poor intellectual history. It is not really "theology". It is more like a Kukla Fran and Ollie show with a few famous intellectuals names thrown in. The point is just to support a conservative Catholic vision. So, why don't they just skip the books and watch EWTN? It is hard to take their conceptual deliberations serioulsy. at any rate, with giant mistakes.
