VOTF: fair and balanced

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 10, 2009

 Those energetic souls at Voice of the Faithful, who eschew all ideological ties, seeking only what it good for the Church, have some new events on their calendar. True to form, the VOTF events will feature speakers whose views cover a broad range of Catholic belief, stretching from the far left to the very far left. 

For example, the New Jersey chapter will hear the Jesuit theologian, Father Roger Haight, speak on "The Uniqueness of Jesus." The Vatican, you may recall, recently issued a warning about the conflict between settled Catholic doctrine and Father Haight's views on the subject of-- you guessed it, the uniqueness of Jesus.

The Long Island chapter of VOTF will be hosting Father Tom Reese, who was removed from his post as editor of the Jesuit weekly America at the request of the Vatican because of his persistent criticism of Church teaching, and has subsequently become a reliable source of quotes for secular reporters looking for a liberal Catholic opinion

But Father Reese won't be alone. The lucky VOTF members at the Long Island conference will also hear from Sister Joan Chittister, the grande dame of the American Catholic left, regular columnist for the National Catholic Reporter, winner of the Hans Kung award, and reliable advocate for every leftist cause

Now just remember

Voice of the Faithful does not have a hidden "liberal" or "conservative" agenda for Church reform. This would be impossible, since our members hold a diverse representation of views.

Diverse indeed.
