Strong language, you say? Well, consider the evidence, amply given to us by Just Faith itself.
First, here's some background. On Fox News, we read of a New Hampshire couple who pulled their son out of school because he was forced to read a book that described Jesus as a "wine-guzzling vagrant and precocious socialist" and was full of foul language. The book is called "Nickel and Dimed" by Barbara Ehrenreich. An aside: I commend the young man for raising his parents' concerns, and for his refusal to read the book.
This same book was recommended by Just Faith in their Fall 2009 newsletter. It is online here (by the way, should it "mysteriously" disappear, please advise as I have saved it. You may wish to do the same). Look on page 3. Just Faith recommends it so you can "be informed".
Our tour of this newsletter is not yet complete. Scrolling down just a tad from the book recommendation, we are invited to "join others working on women's issues". One of these "others" whom we're urged to join is the Institute for Women's Policy Research. Go to that page. In the first white box to the left, you see "health and safety". Click on that, and scroll all the way to the bottom. Yes, you knew that had to be coming! We get to read about "making birth control more accessible to women" and "safe and legal abortion". Now notice that the "other resources" includes Planned Parenthood and National Women's Law Center - both huge proponents of abortion who profit off the same. And we're not finished yet.
Going to page 8, we see an advertisement about an 8-session module in "engaging our conflicts", produced by Pace E Bene Nonviolence Service. This outfit claims as its partner Soulforce, a "gay-rights" advocacy bunch. The essay to which I just linked tells of a Protesant minister who renounced Christian truth to take up the mortal sin of sodomy.
I know there are good people involved in Just Faith, who insist that the "bad can be filtered out". I must ask, but why are there so many of these squalid associations? There's just too many of them not to be deliberate. I can only conclude that one of the purposes of Just Faith is to numb the good sense of decent Catholics to these perilous elements, those that would insinuate their progressive, anti-life and anti-God philosophies into the Church. That is why I renew my call to expel this Just Faith monster from the Archdiocese of Washington and the entire Church.
