New 7th grade Catholic catechism text: Three major modernist heresies in the first chapter, alone!

by Doug Lawrence

As many of you know, my buddy, AndyP/Doria2 passed away recently. Andy was a great Catholic catechist, totally dedicated to that great work. So, out of respect for Andy, and in an effort to keep everything in balance, I signed up to teach 7th grade CCD this year.

I got the text book and teacher’s guide last Wednesday, and finally had a chance to sit down and look at it. The book is very attractive, colorful, nicely organized, easy to read, and it’s supported by a full complement of CD’s, black line masters, a catechist guide, and a website.

That’s the good part. Now, for the bad …

The text includes many of the modernist heresies that have crept into the New American Bible, AmChurch, and virtually all Catholic schools, colleges and seminaries, since the close of the 2nd Vatican Council.

The text’s writers maintain … with no proof at all to back them … and contrary to the constant, official teachings of the Catholic Church:

That the inspired writers to whom the various books of the gospels are attributed, probably didn’t really write them. Hence …  contrary to the plain, written testimony of the evangelists, and of the Catholic Church itself … we have no real  “eyewitness accounts” of Jesus Christ. So everything we read in the Bible is either hearsay … or myth.

That all of the NT writings were produced very “late” … further bolstering their erroneous and unproven assertion that St. Matthew the Apostle most likely didn’t write the Gospel of Matthew, and St. John the Apostle probably didn’t write the Gospel of John, his Epistles (letters) or the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation), etc., etc.

That much of what we read in the Bible is actually in error … and that only stuff put in there specifically “for the purpose of our salvation” is totally reliable.

They also allude to the infamous and so far undiscovered “Q” source and to the nonexistent collection of “The Sayings of Jesus” … all of which is based solely on the very recent, liberal, modernist “theories” of various faithless skeptics … many of them not even Catholic.

The textbook writers claim that the documents of the 2nd Vatican Council provide their authority for all of this “BS” (100% Pure Bovine Excrement) but they don’t. Not by a long shot!

These guys actually learned this stuff in school … from other heretical modernists … quite probably their own teachers … who think they’re smarter than everyone who came before .. so they know better what to believe … better even than the authentic Tradition of the Holy Catholic Church … and of course … better than the God-inspired writers of the Holy Bible.

No wonder the world is suffering from a crisis of faith! This totally heretical stuff has been allowed to “fester” inside the Catholic Church  … unabated and essentially unchallenged … for over fifty years. And it’s been corroding the faith of various Protestant sects … from whence it originally came … for much, much longer!

All of which just goes to prove: Heretics are pretty much the same, from age to age. Only now, the misguided liberals who run the post-Vatican II Catholic Church have seen fit to include this nasty stuff in children’s catechism texts … instead of  going through the trouble of correcting their errors … or bringing the “faith-corroding bastards” up on charges … or better yet … burning them at the stake!

This was only chapter ONE! More to come…
