(en) Anarkismo.net, Ratzinger and the paradox of conservatism by Bruno Lima Rocha (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 04 Mar 2013 15:11:19 +0200

Wotjyla and Karol Joseph Ratzinger, the pope and his pop ideologue, a miner and an intellectual, creator and creature of modern conservatism at the Vatican. The Polish supreme in their realm outside surface, as the German failed to be protagonists in their own reign. ---- Paradoxical as it may seem, we discussed the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI last euphoria Carnival, the biggest party in the country, and by the way, profane. As always, I analyze what happened from the perspective of the base of the pyramid. In the case from two decades of living with pastoral agents laity, priests and friars linked to almost moribund liberation theology, popular version of Christianity that the former secretary of the Polish Karol Wotjyla both fought.

Joseph Ratzinger possibly leaves office by physical exhaustion and mental strain, realizing the incompatibility between intellectual production and management of high-level executive of a supranational state with autonomous bureaucracy and funding little or nothing justifiable. If we analyze the relations of power within the Roman Curia and the hegemonic congregations today, we find that conservative wings like Opus Dei, Communion and Liberation and Legionaries, fight among themselves as rival factions irrespective of theological project. At the top of the pyramid of Roman apostolate, the relationship between faith and money are at least promiscuous. This statement is proven with real estate empire reported by The Guardian and before the fraudulent bankruptcy of Banco Ambrosiano. At its base, the conservative Catholic moves away from the everyday life of ordinary people, reinforcing the predilection for the rite and the flock vying with other religious institutions of mass conversion.

In Brazil, we can make a comparison anything odd. What would be the substantive difference between a Pentecostal pastor preaching conservative in making an appointment paid TV and a priest or bishop, performing the same preaching in an own channel? Perhaps, the only distinction is the responsibility because to be ordained priest need at least eight years of study, equivalent to two upper-level courses. We live in the fullness of hypocrisy. Condemns was a pastor for preaching his grotesque homophobia, but remain silent in the face of intellectual cassock, most philosophers and theologians, saying exactly the same thing. After serving faithfully to advance the conservative papacy of John Paul II, Ratzinger exhausted his strength by also reap what they sowed.

The paradox of sadness is seeing in Latin America, the works of people like Camilo Torres, Oscar Romero, Samuel Ruiz, Pedro Casaldaliga, Ignacio Ellacuria, Helder Camara, Paul Cerioli, among thousands of other religious undergoing this type of ecclesial hierarchy .
