...Benedict also warned against a secular view of history in his homily based on biblical texts.
“History is not in the hands of dark powers, of chance or mere human choices,” Benedict said.
Rather, he said: “The Lord is the supreme arbitrator of history.”
In an off-the-cuff remark, Benedict recommended “fear of God” as a way to deal with the difficulties of the world.
“It is through the fear of God that we are not afraid of the world and its problems. We are not afraid of men because God is stronger,” Benedict said.
It's not God I'm afraid of...it's the Pinheaded Psychos following "God's Will" that give the Screaming Heebie Jeebies. And what the hell does he mean History is not in the hand of blah, blah, blah... It's an empty phrase at best. History is the collected memory of Humanity...it is infinitely mallable and written by the "winners" making the rest of us Losers.
The Empire never Ended...and the Black Iron Prison wears a new coat of paint.
