Nice smear on the Pope today in The L.A. Times. Apparently, the practicioners of "liberation theology" weren't happy with the Pope.

Too bad. You may not get it from reading the romanticized account in today's Times, but "liberation theology" was, and is, nothing more than a systematic effort to cover radical Marxism with a religious gloss. Given the unyielding hostility of any collectivist regime toward religion (after all, an omnipotent state can't stand competition from a church), it's no surprise that the Pope, who lived under both Nazis and Communists, was no fan of the kind of totalitarian regimes that "liberation theologists" were trying to establish in South America.

Too bad The Times couldn't be bothered with telling the whole story.

I'd like to believe The Los Angeles Times is the exception to the rule in this matter, but it isn't. I have been watching and reading as the mainstream news media has set to smearing and slandering organized religion.

Religion and teachers are always among the first to be savaged by those wanting revolutionary change. Removing moral judgement and anyone not touting the party line from the mainstream fosters revolutionary goals.
