Putting On the Tiara

Vree, Dale
March 1979
National Review;3/30/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 13, p424
The article focuses on a series of articles concerning Marxist-Christian relations published in the Spring 1978 issue of the liberal Catholic quarterly "Cross Currents." The appointment of Pope John Paul II of Marxist-ruled Poland and the Pope's trip to Puebla, Mexico to address the Third General Conference of Latin American Bishops triggered the revival of the Marxist-Christian debate. It became apparent that Pope John Paul II has detected a Marxist-inspired corruption of the Gospel in liberation theology. Clericalists from "Cross Currents" want a neo-medieval type of church, in other words a power church.
