Catholic Church no longer swears by truth of the Bible

From this article.

If they keep t his up, they will modernize themselves out of existence. Let's look at some snips:

THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true.

The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible.

“We should not expect to find in Scripture full scientific accuracy or complete historical precision,” they say in
The Gift of Scripture.


The Bible is true in passages relating to human salvation, they say, but continue: “We should not expect total accuracy from the Bible in other, secular matters.”

They go on to condemn fundamentalism for its “intransigent intolerance” and to warn of “significant dangers” involved in a fundamentalist approach.

“Such an approach is dangerous, for example, when people of one nation or group see in the Bible a mandate for their own superiority, and even consider themselves permitted by the Bible to use violence against others.”

Well, they're a day late and a dollar short, but at least some Catholics aren't impervious to reason. Just watch as the Christian castle of lies crumbles brick by brick, stone by stone, as reality slowly takes it's toll on superstition worldwide.

This makes sense; they've been operating in this same mindset for a while. You've got to admire a denomination that can come out with a Bible translation like the New Jerusalem.
