    Cardinal Dolan’s attitude is that WYD works. What the Catholic faith comes down to is the belief that, if it works, it is a good thing, and, if it is a good thing, it is true. It is definitely a case of the end justifying the means. The end is the building of faith in Jesus Christ being the Son of God, and, in essence, God himself. The means is WYD.

      “What the Catholic faith comes down to is the belief that, if it works, it is a good thing, and, if it is a good thing, it is true. ”

      Have you ever noticed that the scientific method is exactly the same? If a hypothesis works, it becomes a theory, and if there are no conflicting experiments, it becomes a law.

        “Have you ever noticed that the scientific method is exactly the same?”

        Comparing how the Church indoctrinates youth to the scientific method is an insult to the scientific method.

        • TheodoreSeeber

          Comparing how the Church indoctrinates youth to how the scientific method indoctrinates youth is just being honest.

          If it works, it is a good thing, if it is a good thing, it is true is exactly the same as the scientific method, which we know to be true because *it works*.

          Or to put it in simpler terms, truth lives, lies die.

          That’s why I’m not terribly frightened of your new world order based on mythological consent rather than physical gender- it’s a clear lie.

            “Comparing how the Church indoctrinates youth to how the scientific method indoctrinates youth is just being honest.”

            One indoctrinates youth that they should believe without evidence. That can’t be good.

            • TheodoreSeeber

              The Church doesn’t ask us to believe without evidence, that’s what the whole doctrine of “informed conscience” is about. The Church asks us to believe until we have examined evidence from a legitimate authority to the contrary. That’s entirely different.

              Every time I’ve disagreed with a Church doctrine, upon studying the doctrine, I have found the Church to be more correct than I am. To the point that I consider anybody who fails to believe Church doctrine to likely merely be ignorant of some point.
