Scratch a Reactionary, Find a Jew-Hater

Scratch a Reactionary, Find a Jew-Hater December 17, 2013

Fresh from the spectacle of screaming their way through a Kristallnacht commemoration in Buenos Aires, the Reactionaries again hold a teapot tempestfest by freaking out over this passage from Evangelii Gaudium:

“We hold the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked”. Evangelii Gaudium n. 247

With that, a latter day Marcionite named Fr. Paul Kramer, who is associated with another reactionary named Fr. Nicholas Gruner, has declared Francis a heretic and kicked him out of the papacy while (as all dissenters do) installing himself in his place. Most hilarious part: for the kooks at Novus Ordo Watch, that’s still not enough because he doesn’t hate and reject enough people yet.

Meanwhile, in the land of the sane:

“The Old Testament is an indispensable part of Sacred Scripture. Its books are divinely inspired and retain a permanent value,92 for the Old Covenant has never been revoked.” CCC 121

For those of you interested in a non-crazy approach to the relationship between the Old and New Covenants, may I offer my series on A Tale of Two Covenants, found here, here, here, and here.
