Roman Catholics Throwing a Roman Catholic Apologist Under the Bus

Here's one to watch from Catholic Answers about the work of Roman apologist, Robert Sungenis. Let's see what these folks will come up with as the hours go by. I predict they'll throw him under the bus, so to speak.

So far:

"I do not agree with his views on evolution or the geocentric model, and I do not see why they are part of Catholic apologetics. I do agree with his criticism of the State of Israel, Rabbinic Judaism, and Zionism, but, again, I do not to see what this has to do with Catholic apologetics. I do not deny his talents as an apologist and as a debater, but for the above mentioned reasons, I do not recommend his work to others."

 "His first few works -- "Not By Faith Alone" and "Not By Scripture Alone" -- were (and still are) great Catholic apologetics books. That's why they have forewords from heavy hitters like Peter Kreeft and Scott Hahn. As the years went on, though, he sort of went off the rails from mainstream Catholic apologetics with his views on geocentrism and Judaism. That's why you are hearing mixed things about him."

Ah. I'll assume it wasn't because of anything I posted, but rather the in-house squabbles that show how Rome's defenders aren't united is too embarrassing.

I got to meet Nick Sungenis (Robert’s son) about a month ago. He seemed like a kind soul with a pastor’s heart. Currently in seminary discerning his call to the priesthood. Praise God! May God bless the Sungenis family.

With love in Christ,
