You know the old expression “kids say the darnedest things?” Well sometimes old Jesuits say the damnedest things.
Perhaps we are at the point where writing about an old Jesuit spouting heretical stuff is like writing “dog bites man,” but let’s have a go shall we?
Roger P. Lenaers SJ,(85) of the parish Vorderhornbach in the diocese is in Innsbruck spoke at a lecture in Vienna. You know how old men tell you what they really think without the filters younger men put in place? Well Fr. Lenaers told us what he really thinks.
He started by saying** “”modern science” have brought to light that the universe follow its own laws, is autonomous and is not directed from the outside.”
It then follows, he says, that all religion should be an “atheistic faith.”
