connected to the Catholic Church. Thomas Aquinas was the intellectual
representative of church theology, which was based upon Biblical texts
interpreted through "The Philosopher", Aristotle. So in the individuality
who lived in Aristotle, Aquinas, and Steiner, we have the very architect of
Christian intellectual thinking.
With the above in mind, we can see the revolutionary aspect of Steiner's
message in a proper perspective. He valued the richness of history and art
and rituals that the church testifies to, but he also expressed the
necessity for the Christ Impulse to free itself from the clutches of its
dogmatic theology and passion for authority. What rituals are concerned,
these have been replaced by those of the CC. We also have new impulses of
architecture and art; the RC is a museum, a mirror of the past.
Keep also in mind that the RC killed many of rhe true Christian prophets,
burned them on the stake, tortured them to death and so on. The history of
the church is a blood-stained path indeed, just like Islam. Of course there
are connections between spiritual science and traditional religions; the
former prepresents the future development of the latter. Old monotheistic
religions are becoming increasingly decadent, primarily because
unquestioned authority and blind obedience belong to the past.

You've compared him to a guy by the name of McCoy...hummmmm...and I
can't tell you how offended I am by your politically insensitive
remark about the Irish which everyone is simply not true...Dottie,
at this point the Pinnochio remark is pertinent.
