The Shadow Revealed in Scandal: Roman Catholicism at a Crossroads
Friday, April 23, 2010
Laura and Christopher speak to Matthew Fox, best known as the catholic priest excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church in the 1990s. Due to controversy surrounding his denial of original sin, he was forbidden to teach theology by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), then Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Fox discusses the spiritual crisis that Roman Catholicism now faces and how it may come through this as a more authentic force of love and spiritual awareness. The panel addresses the shadow side of religion in general, including scandal, sexuality and denial.
