The noxious weed of logic

Quite recently, Europe stood transfixed with awe and admiration when one of pious Polish leaders proposed to introduce a complete ban of abortion on the whole continent. But in the ensuing enthusiasm, in the midst of delight and fanfare, one important detail was overlooked – that noble statesman fiercely defends life from conception to natural death and, at the same time, calls for restoration of the death penalty.

And many of my followers share a similar view. This means that the noxious weed of logic – which in fact has never aggressively spread among those who love me – seems to be withering into the ground.

The consequences of such a state of affairs are profound, significant, and far-reaching. A mind not poisoned by the venom of logical reasoning more easily embraces the concept of Trinitarian unity; painlessly accepts my idea of eternal hellish tortures for the disobedient (Mt 13:41,42; 25:46), despite my repeated confessions of love for all of you (Jn 15:9); smoothly comprehends that I can disown those who reject me (Lk 12:9), although my summons to love of enemies sounds unequivocal (Mt 5:44); justifies the lesson of violence I gave to the merchants in the temple (Mt 21:12), having forgotten, for a moment, my own principle of turning the other cheek (Lk 6:29).

Thus, you should continuously develop your blessed ability of holding internally contradictory views, because every faith can magnificently grow on them – including faith in me.
