LIBERATION THEOLOGY. A movement in the Roman Catholic Church that makes criticism of oppression essential to the task of theology. The forms of oppression to be criticized are mainly social and economic evils. Originating in Latin America, liberation theology has held as its main concern the exploitation of the poor, but it also seeks to defend the rights of minority and ethnic groups and to support women's liberation. It is, therefore, a theory of deliverance from the injustices caused to people by the power structures of modern society.

It is a new approach to theology, and its leaders urge a reinterpretation of the Christian faith to concentrate on the main task of the Church today, TO DELIVER PEOPLE EVERYWHERE FROM THE INHUMANITY TO WHICH THEY ARE BEING SUBJECTED, ESPECIALLY BY THOSE IN POLITICAL POWER. ACCORDINGLY ALL THE MAIN DOCTRINES OF HISTORIC CHRISTIANITY ARE TO BE REASSESSED AND, IF NEED BE, REVISED. ***CHRIST BECOMES AN INSPRIRED DELIVERER OF THE WEAK AND OPPRESSED; GOD'S KINGDOM CENTERS ON THIS WORLD, AND NOT ON THE NEXT; SIN IS ESSENTIALLY SOCIAL EVIL AND NOT AN OFFENSE AGAINST GOD; THE CHURCH'S MISSION IS MAINLY SOCIOPOLITICAL AND NOT ESCHATOLOGICAL; AND OBJECTIVE DIVINE REVELATION IS SUBORDINATED TO PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.***

Aware of both the potential and risks of liberation theology, Pope John Paul II addressed himself mainly to this subject on his visit to Mexico in early 1979. He told the bishops of Latin America, met at Puebla for their General Conference: "The Church feels the duty to proclaim the liberation of millions of human beings, the duty to help this liberation become firmly established." At the same time, ". . . she also feels the corresponding duty to proclaim LIBERATION IN ITS INTEGRAL AND PROFOUND MEANING, AS JESUS PROCLAIMED AND REALIZED IT." Then, drawing on Pope Paul VI's teaching, he declared thatIT IS "ABOVE ALL, LIBERATION FROM SIN AND THE EVIL ONE, in the joy of knowing God and being known by him."

The Pope finally set down the norms "that help to distinguish when the liberation in question is Christian and when on the other hand it is based rather on IDEOLOGIES that rob it of consistency with an evangelical point of view." Basically these norms refer to the content "of what the evangelizers proclaim" and to "the concrete attitudes that they adopt." On the level of content, "one must see what is their fidelity to the word of God, to the Church's living Tradition and to her Magisterium." On the level of attitudes, "one must consider what sense of communion they have with the bishops, in the first place, and with the other sectors of the People of God; what contribution they make to the real building up of the community; in what form they lovingly show care for the poor, the sick, the dispossessed, the neglected and the oppressed, and in what way they find in them the image of the poor and suffering Jesus, and strive to relieve their need and serve Christ in them" (address to the Third General Conference of the Latin American Episcopate, January 28, 1979).

Maria has misread the article and posted something on liberation theology.

Nope.

“… Liberation theologians were the ones who finally succeeded in giving all those airy concepts of Teilhard de Chardin a practical meaning. But that would have been little use among the ordinary masses of believers, had the new “theologians” not succeeded also in transposing the meaning of all the key terms used to convey the basic truths and teachings of traditional Roman Catholicism. In their writings, you can see the quick, skillful way in which it was done.


The Church became the “people of God”, not the hierarchic Church of Rome. Sin is not primarily personal; it is social and almost exclusively the injustice and oppression due to capitalism. Mary the Virgin is the mother of a revolutionary Jesus—indeed of all revolutionaries seeking to overthrow capitalism. The Kingdom of God is the socialist state from which capitalist oppression has been eliminated. Priesthood is either the service given by an individual (the priest) who builds up socialism, or it is “the people of God” as it worships according to its like. The list of such adopted Catholic expressions is as long as you like. For each and every Catholic term about piety, belief, asceticism, and theology is taken over by Liberation Theologians.



The refinement of such co-opted terms permits grinning twists and ugly distortions of Roman Catholicism…ultimately, however, such use of Roman Catholic vocabulary, laden as it is with deep attraction for the faithful, provided an otherwise unattainable legitimacy for a this-worldly blueprint for the future. Cleverly used, the new “theological lexicon” not only justifies but mandates the use of any means—including armed violence, torture, and violation of human rights, deception and deep alliances with professedly atheistic and anti-religious forces…”

"Liberation theology" is the work of satan. A very ingenious way of corrupting what is good by appealing to anger, resentment, envy, vanity etc.

This blog isn't about liberation theology.

But you are wrong about LT.

Anonymous said...

The reason the jesuits are on the side of leftist agitators in the Scott Walker recall is because their minds have been corrupted by evil in the form of "L.T".

Anonymous said...

ReallY?! That's crazy--a huge number of people want to recall Scott W. How on earth does that make them supporters of LT?



BTW, I wish they were LT supporters..

If only so many Jesuits were politically unified in eliminating abortion as they are eliminating this Governor.

Priests who support liberation theology need to undergo exorcism. They have the same demons as Joseph Stalin, Mao & Marx

Scott Walker's views are in direct conflict with church teachings.

Charles: You are a very wise man ;)

Exactly how are Walker's views in direct conflict with chuch teaching?

There's another reason liberation theology is popular with rengade leftist priests. Many of them just so happen to be homosexuals who feel marginalized, so it's all about them personally (not the church - which they damage for selfish reasons).

Labor teachings; teachings on the poor and the state.

I said "exactly how" is Walker in direct conflict with church teachings. You had to give a vague answer because (like the Jesuits) you don't know what you're talking about.


Government union workers have forced this recall because now they have to make a tiny contribution to their pensions/heath insurane premiums. For decades it was all free via taxpayers. Private sector workers pay much more and don't have pensions (401Ks).

Now possible to fire bad teachers and reward the good ones with higher pay (just like the rest of the world). Before the reforms, the teachers frequently caught sleeping on the job or looking at porn on school computers before the reforms always got to keep their jobs.

What the unions are really steamed about is members will now get to voluntarily pay union dues instead of having the state take it out of their paychecks. Their own members don't want to be in the unions unless they are forced to be.

The Church has been a steadfast supporter of the labor movement. Walker has declared war on the labor movement. Walker is at odds with the Church.

Anonymous said...

So the church gives a blank check to "the labor movement" and supports whatever it does regardless of the specifics, huh? When teamster truckers shot non-union truckers trying to make a living, the church supported that? What about when corrupt unions bully and threaten whisleblowers or people who prefer not to join?

TM 627.01 Spirituality of Liberation II
Summer (1 credit) July 16 – 20, 2012
GUSTAVO GUTIERREZ, O.P. and James Nickoloff

The term 'spirituality' is often understood in an individualistic way and seen as an escape from a world of conflict. This course will aim to clarify the meaning of the term, as understood by Latin American theologians, paying special attention to the link between spirituality and (1) evangelization, (2) the transformation of human history, and (3) the struggle for justice. Week 1 (with James Nickoloff) will explore the socio-historical context in which the contemporary spirituality of liberation has arisen.

Is this Gustavo the same nut they were talking about when I was in grad school in the late 80's? If Hasn't he heard? The revolution is OVER, lol. Guess not. Marxists unite!

I bet the poster who thinks "L.T." is good and that the church gives the labor movement a middle ages-style special indulgence to do as it pleases is a jesuit priest. Sad. Pathetic. He and his ilk would be more at home in scientology where they can make it up as they go.

EVANGELII NUNTIANDI

APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION
OF HIS HOLINESS
POPE PAUL VI

DECEMBER 8, 1975


"We must not ignore the fact that many, even generous Christians who are sensitive to the dramatic questions involved in the problem of liberation, in their wish to commit the Church to the liberation effort are frequently tempted to reduce her mission to the dimensions of a simply TEMPORAL PROJECT
. They would reduce her aims to a man-centered goal; the salvation of which she is the messenger would be reduced to material well-being. Her activity, forgetful of all spiritual and religious preoccupation, would become initiatives of the political or social order. But if this were so, the Church would lose her fundamental meaning. Her message of liberation would no longer have any originality and would easily be open to monopolization and manipulation by ideological systems and political parties. She would have no more authority to proclaim freedom as in the name of God. This is why we have wished to emphasize, in the same address at the opening of the Synod, "the need to restate clearly the specifically religious finality of evangelization. This latter would lose its reason for existence if it were to diverge from the religious axis that guides it: the kingdom of God, before anything else, in its fully theological meaning...."[62]

And what is more, the Church has the firm conviction that all temporal liberation, all political liberation- even if it endeavors to find its justification in such or such a page of the Old or New Testament, even if it claims for its ideological postulates and its norms of action theological data and conclusions, even if it pretends to be today's theology- carries within itself the germ of its own negation and fails to reach the ideal that it proposes for itself whenever its profound motives are not those of justice in charity, whenever its zeal lacks a truly spiritual dimension and whenever its final goal is not salvation and happiness in God."

Yes, do have a read...

I did have a "read" and I don't find that this negates LT.

But please read the thread re. labor rights which is not the same as LT. That is what we are discussing.
