But Isn't Christianity Anti-Learning?

    Father Tim Finigan has a great little post over at The Hermeneutic of Continuity in which he points out, among other things, that the traditional vestments worn at Western graduation ceremonies come directly from universities’ religious pasts. It is quite striking: When I first looked at the picture of the graduation procession in his post, I assumed it was a shot from some kind of church service.


    Any modern person immersed in secular wisdom knows that Christianity is an antiquated, superstitious belief system that is antithetical to reason and learning. The religious nuts can sit around and talk about fairies and angels and all the other silly stuff that interests them, but people who really value truth and the pursuit of knowledge set all that aside in order to get a real education.

    Certainly little learning can take place without literacy and free time.

    When academics and theologians are censored and suppressed by the Church, it gives the world the impression that Catholicism is anti-learning.

    I will leave it up to the rest of you to comment on whether the impression is true or false.

    No, they don't KNOW that at all because it simply isn't true. God commands us to seek knowledge and wisdom (simply reading the book of Proverbs makes this abundantly clear). What secular man often does is look at the practices of certain churches that have fallen into apostasy and heresy, who abide in the corrupt teachings of men rather than fully abiding in the pure word of God and think what they do must be what God teaches. If secular man bothered to look at God's book they would discover that a great many of their beliefs about God have no basis in reality so there is no little irony in such men displaying the very attributes they wrongly condemn Christianity for.

    Institutions of higher learning still are religious institutions though.

    They are then seminaries of the Left.
