Those of you who read my material (especially the biblical stuff) know I don’t bash Catholicism, though I have serious disagreements with it. (I’m here to irritate everyone, not just Catholics). 🙂
I have no doubt that this pope has a good heart, and I love his distaste for celebrity status. But this is loopy. Then again, it makes sense given the deeply flawed (in terms of biblical exegesis) Roman Catholic teaching about baptismal regeneration. But wait . . . people need that in Catholic teaching because of Romans 5:12, which pertains to the descendants of Adam, who are . . . people . . . not extraterrestrials . . . . So how does this make sense again?
This is a common Roman Catholic position in the ET life discussion. It just doesn’t get more any coherent with repetition.
