Limits to irrationality Limits to what is bearable?

President of Italy expects Catholic theology teachers to lie and teach irrationality to get a Licence in Theology

A Decree of the President of the Italian Republic (Feb.2,1995) recognises a License to teach Theology (licenza in teologia) in Catholic secondary schools and it is given only to those Catholics who will teach the Catholic Religion, with an irrational premise and conclusion ; a falsehood.This new theology is approved by the Italian secular government and the Vatican.

The Italian Government only allows the License to be given in theology to students who interpret Church documents, with the theology of Cushingism instead of traditional Feeneyism.This is also approved by Masons and the Left in general.

Catholic school teachers who have a License in Theology, can teach the Catholic Religion, but they will have to interpret Vatican Council II, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus ( Council of Florence,1441) with Cushingism, instead of the centuries old Feeneyism.

The website of the Anthonianum University, Rome, the pontifical university which uses official Cushingism, explains the academic title of Licentiate.It is given only to those students who will not interpret the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus , as it was understood by St. Francis of Assisi and St. Anthony of Padua, who used Feeneyism as a theology.

So if a Catholic chooses to open a theological institute in Italy, whose faculty will interpret centuries-old magisterial documents with traditional Feeneyism ( there are no known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, there is no known salvation outside the Church) it will not be recognised by the Italian government or the Vatican's universities in Rome.

A new private Catholic theological institute,Scholasticum, presents itself as a traditional Scholastic institution but it's theology is liberal, since it is based on Cushingism.Cushingism is not the theology associated with the Traditional Latin Mass...
To assume that people who are dead, and now in Heaven, saved with the baptism of desire are objective in the present times, is an irrationality. This is fantasy. Yet this is the basis of the new theology recognised by the Italian government.
A Catholic professor of theology has to lie and say there are known cases of persons saved outside the Church who are objective exceptions to the traditional teaching on extra ecclesiam nulla salus ( all needing to be formal members of the Church to avoid the fires of Hell). He then has to teach this falsehood as part of the Catholic Religion, to Catholic school children here.
The Italian government does not allow the freedom to teach the Catholic theology as it was known to St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis Xavier and St. Robert Bellarmine. If a teacher did teach traditional theology, he or she would not be recognised by Catholic schools and the government.
Since with Feeneyism ( there are no objective exceptions to the dogma EENS) Vatican Council II (AG 7, LG 14) would be saying all non Christians need 'faith and baptism' for salvation ( to avoid Hell).This is not politically acceptable. So Catholic religious teaching and Church doctrines are changed with a theology which uses a fantasy premise and conclusion.
No one has objected to the official lie being imposed on Catholics by the President of the Italian Republic.For political reasons Catholic doctrine is also being changed.Catholic salvation theology has to be interpreted with philosophical subjectivism( baptism of desire cases are visible) and Protestant situation ethics, to make it politically acceptable to the Left.-Lionel Andrades
