Fr. Baron on “Why I Hate Religion” video

January 24th, 2012, Promulgated by Mike

Dovetailing a bit on Ben’s post, I saw this morning that Fr. Robert Baron has responded to Jefferson Bethke’s “Why I Hate Religion” video.

There is also a second video from Fr. Baron but, before clicking on the play button, you should be aware – if you aren’t already – that ‘deracinate’ means ‘to pull up by the roots’ or ‘to isolate or alienate something from its native or customary culture or environment.’ Why you should know this will soon become obvious.

    I think Fr. Baron does a fairly good job of defending the Catholic Church against this video on “Why I Hate Religion”…He defends the principles of Catholicism, and rejects its being torn away from it’s historical roots in Judaism. Jesus chose to be born Jewish, and He respected the “upright” traditions of His time.

    Jim makes a very good observation regarding Fr. Baron’s video. If you’re interested, I have written along similar lines in regards to early Christian liturgical art here: http://www.historyofchristianart.com/ (“Part 1: Origins” -most obviously the last few pages).

    The ‘evangelical’ attitude toward religious ritual and traditions evidenced in the ‘hate religion’ video still infects many Catholic liturgists. What is infuriating is the liturgists’ citations of early Christian liturgical practices that are fictituous and historically inaccurate. They revel in fantasy, not facts, in order to promote banal liturgy symbolized by the ‘ceramic cup vs. gold chalice’ preference of some liturgists and priests.

    I’m sorry. Its “Part 6: Synagogue to Church” at http://www.historyofchristianart.com/
