The Holly Inquisition Today

Well, here you have hard evidence that The Vatican is a backwards institution that belongs in the Middle Ages. This note comes to us via EITb:

Vatican to suspend Basque theologian Jon Sobrino

He is charged with distorting the image of the historical Jesus. The well-known Jesuit, one of greatest exponents of the Liberation Theology, will not be allowed to teach or to publish books.

Jon Sobrino, renowned theologian and one of the leaders of the Liberation Theology, will be punished by Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Spain's El Mundo newspaper reports Friday.

According to El Mundo, the Vatican charges Sobrino with "not stating openly the divine conscience of the historical Jesus, this is, putting too much stress on the humanity of Christ hiding its divinity.

The Congregation will ban Sobrino from teaching in Church centres and from publishing books. The punishment will be announced within the next days, although the Spanish newspaper says it might be next March 15. It adds Sobrino and the Jesuit Order already know about the sanction.

The same sources say the Vatican asked Sobrino to correct its attitude. The Basque theologian asked his superiors for advice and he was told he would be backed no matter which his decision was. He decided not to rectify and the Vatican continued the proceedings.
