Father Frank Pavone is the national director of Priests for Life, the largest Catholic, pro-life organization in the country. Here he reacts to the upcoming Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert rally in Washington.
Now when our religion tells us that we can know God’s revealed truth, that is not an invitation to shut down the mind or stop the thinking process. Precisely the opposite is the case. When God speaks, the mind goes to work. Revealed truth opens vistas to the mind that it could not reach before, and when we take revealed truth and think about it, compare it to what we know by reason, and compare one revealed truth to another, we are engaging in the discipline of theology.
