THE UNIVERSITY IN A DEVELOPING WORLD SOCIETY by four professors of Notredame University

by JF

This book was published in 1968 by the University of Notredame Press. Its title alone makes it fascinating, as it seems to anticipate the “New World Order” which is even more imminent for us today. The nucleus of the book consists of four essays by four different professors of Notredame University at that time. As us regular folk would expect, all four of these pontificating professors use a barrage of multi-syllabic words to discuss ideas and concepts that could have been discussed in fewer words and simpler language. Okay, so that’s a ubiquitous fault among just about all professors, regardless of religious stripe, whether it’s Romanism, Protestantism, Hinduism, “Scientific” Naturalism, etc.

However, as these high-falutin guys all received their paychecks from Romanism, Inc., they all have another commonality that might be expected: they all blindly, incredibly, and hypocritically tout their Romanist system as being the preserver of freedom, most especially the freedom of the intellect. It’s ridiculous to read how many times and in how many ways these guys all claim this. I could cite quote after quote of how these blind guides all claim this repeatedly in their respective essays. They naturally and conveniently forget the whole Galileo-must-recant thing, as well as a lot of other unmentionables down through history that explode their belief structure and expose their bias. They also conveniently forget the whole Dark Ages thing, and who authored that little affair of a few wasted centuries–no big deal, right? The selective histories of these professors, and their willful blindspots, is appalling: They condemn the Reformation, while touting the Counter-Reformation, as though the latter would have ever happened in the absence of the former. These essays are so full of hypocrisy and lies it would be laughable if these people weren’t so serious and that so many young people had to sit in a classroom and be indoctrinated by them.

Finally, as you might expect, the book finishes up with a sermon wherein a lot of prayers to Mary are recited. No doubt, if pressed, the writer of the sermon would insist that these were  not actually prayers, but only “venerations.” And the beat goes on. And so do the lies and hypocrisy and balderdash.
