: : I totally disagree with this, but I have to say that is a much more respectable position than combining an atheist's political philosophy with the traditions of Catholicism to acheive thier ends.

: SDF: One question. Does Thomas More count as a Catholic? His book Utopia pictured a society with plenty of redistributive festivals to level the differentials in wealth...

Yes, an excellent reply. I might have expected such from you. But tell me, what would Saint Thomas More have thought about humanism as practiced by twentieth century man? Would the redistribution of wealth as practiced in the Soviet Union or Red China have garnered St. Thomas More's approval?
Was St. Thomas More, while writing his 'Utopia', thinking of a society based on atheism, or one aligned with St. Augustine's 'City on a Hill'?
How would 'God's own servant' view the avant garde Catholicism of Liberation Theology of today?
You must of read my post very quickly becase I posed other questions that you haven't answered.
