During his weekly radio program, Archbishop Domingo Salvador Castagna of Corrientes said the Catholic Church is the preferred target of militant atheism.
The Argentinean prelate denounced what he called “the tactics of disparagement,” by which “modern man seems to reject whatever is religious, when in reality he is rejecting a God who guides his steps toward the achieving of his destiny. He doesn’t know what to do with his life, and nevertheless, he rebels against the One who shows him what to do with it. The way to successfully achieve this ‘rejection’ is to disparage those who bring him the guiding word and grace.”
Because of the Church’s firm commitment to truth and morality, the archbishop explained, she has become “the preferred target of ‘militant atheism’.
Evil has had a profound impact on society, he continued, and spiritual malaise will continue to be a problem as long as all of the blame is placed on one group while the other group portrays itself as mere victims.
