Ivy League Professor's Remarks about Race and God Exemplify Disgraceful Leadership in America Comments

Anthea Butler's comments about race and God in response to the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial are not a reflection of Catholicism. The Catholic Church is about truth, unity, beauty, and goodness not division and hatred. Continue Reading

    What chucklehead says this "Professor" of lefty quack BS is Catholic???? Any priest who ministers to this "Professor" will quickly recognize the problem.

    The question of whether this liberal doink is one of 2 billion Catholics should be an easy question.

    First of all, Anthea Butler is not a Catholic, her theological education is protestant based, thus, this woman is a protestant. There are many Catholics out there who do not understand the Catechism which educate the teaching of our Catholic faith. This woman does not have the fullness or understanding of the Catholic faith. Thus, we should stop here and pray for those, including majority of Catholics who has not been catechized, referring to those who do not understand or experience the fullness of Jesus Christ who created our Catholic church. We live in the world, but we do not belong to the world. God bless to all of you.

    Malheureusement, this is not a new story. Madame is not a professor of anything. Madame is beneath contempt, not even worthy of a shotgun blast (now that would be salt, not lead, I do not mean to do physiological harm) in the arse to wake her up.

    Would you pay $65,000/year in tuition to put your child into the flow of sewage that this "professor" directs at 19-year old people who are her intellectual and moral betters?

    I didn't think so.

    To say this article leaves me sick is an understatement. In my 65 yrs I have seen the world change in many ways - in good ways. Race relations and Women's equality have come a long way. None of us are saints nor right 100% of the time. I think we all need to sit back and take a long hard look are what we are doing.

    “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike." Matthew 11:25

    Anthea Butler is a self proclaimed "wiser, older professor" who embraces and promotes intrinsic evils such as abortion and "gay marriage".

    If Anthea Butler is on trial on the accusation of being a "Catholic", I would not find enough evidence to convict her.

    HUH? It's educated idiots like this woman that feed the perception that higher education is an oxymoron... sorta like the scandalous and blasphemous bloviafications and musings of certain Catholic theologians.

    Why are the civil rights advocates not calling out for justice for Tonya Reaves? A 24 yo black woman who bled to death at the hands of a white abortionist? took Tonya five and a half hours to bleed out in that clinic. Five and a half hours while clinic staff did nothing to save her! Hey, Barry, that could've been YOUR daughter, right? Would it be ok if instead of Tonya that had been one of your daughters? Because you support this "medical care " for other black women! Must be good enough for your own daughters then, right?

    "The Lord has swallowed up without mercy all the habitations of Jacob; in his wrath he has broken down the strongholds of the daughter of Judah; he has brought down to the ground in dishonor the kingdom and its rulers." Lam 2:2

    Oh how righteous we are! If only we could enter the experience of another's suffering, how humble we would become.

    I suggest we all read and reflect on the Book of Lamentations. In Lamentations God is absent, God does not speak; the people suffer and wonder why? God allows one to be angry, to shout in pain to say what is on one's heart. Are we, white men, more powerful then God? Sometimes it seems that we are. As we prepare to throw stones at the woman, Jesus might write in the sand and we might walk away.

    This woman is just a bitter angry racist, who found a reason to spew forth her venom and hatred of white people.
