How the Catholic Church Seduces the Youth

Book Summary: A critical contrast to Youcat. Without a foreword by the pope. In 2011, the German edition of the Catholic catechism for young people, Youcat, was published in question and answer form. Printed as an easily manageable volume with bright pictures and a foreword by Benedict XVI, Youcat has probably been the biggest publishing campaign of the Catholic Church in years. By now, the book has been translated into 72 languages, and more than 5 million copies have been sold. The comprehensive attempt to obtain a firm foothold in the thinking and personality of children and adolescents, to attract them to a dubious set of dogmas with absurd teachings made Heinz-Werner Kubitza write his book. Its title alone may seem provocative. Must we really speak of seduction? To each of the 165 questions of Youcat the author gives a reasonably rational answer, not in a humorless way, but in a quite ironic manner. From question to question he shows that many statements in Youcat are nothing but dubious, and that the Church that provides them shows many characteristics of a religious ideology unacceptable in a pluralistic and open society. Linked with the powerful propaganda machinery set in motion by the Catholic Church to spread its catechism for youth, this justifies the speaking not of promotion but of mental or spiritual seduction printed in large numbers.

Book Summary: An Australian mother's love, the power of the Catholic Church and the fight for justice over child sexual abuse. Chrissie and Anthony Foster were like any other young family, raising their three daughters in suburban Melbourne with what they hoped were the right values. Chrissie could not have known that the stranger-danger she feared actually lurked in the presbytery attached to the girls' Catholic primary school. Father Kevin O'Donnell, a long-term paedophile, lived and worked there. Two of their young daughters became victims of O'Donnell. And once the truth was revealed, the Fosters began a battle to find out how this could have happened. The Church offered silence, lies, denials and threats. Meanwhile, their daughters tried to piece together their fractured lives. This is the chilling true story that made national and international headlines. Chrissie Foster's heartbreaking account of her family's suffering, and their determination to stand up for themselves against the might of the Catholic Church, is testament to the strength of a mother's love, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Book Summary: Anyone deeply interested in converts seeks an exposition of the Catholic Faith which not only defines each article of the Creed and each doctrine of the Church, but which also gives an explanation and a reason for the doctrine,” writes Fulton J. Sheen in the Foreword to this classic of religious instruction. “Such an ideal is beautifully satisfied in a Catechism written by one of our zealous missionary Bishops, Most Reverend Louis L. R. Morrow, S.T.D., Bishop of Krishnagar. The presentation is such as to satisfy the mentality of both children and adults, and is even not beyond an excellent review for those who have studied both Dogmatic and Moral Theology.” This work is organized as follows: 1. Religion and the End of Man 2. The Apostles’ Creed 3. God the Supreme Being 4. The Perfections of God 5. Divine Providence 6. Existence of God 7. Divine Revelation 8. Holy Scripture, or The Bible 9.

Book Summary: Der Jugendkatechismus Youcat soll den Nachwuchs der katholischen Kirche weltweit auf Linie bringen. Und in 25 Sprachen übersetzt soll er für die katholische Kirche besonders unter Kindern und Jugendlichen Menschen fischen. Allein zum Weltjugendtag in Madrid wurde er 700.000-mal verteilt. Was Jugendliche oder Gläubige aber nicht so einfach merken können: Der Youcat ist unseriös. Er ist unseriös, weil er so tut, als wäre man bei seiner Erstellung ernsthaft an einem Gespräch mit Jugendlichen interessiert gewesen. Die katholische Kirche definiert Dogmen, sie diskutiert sie nicht. Er ist unseriös, weil er den Jugendlichen ein Bild von Jesus und den ersten Christen vermittelt, das in der neutestamentlichen Wissenschaft und bei Historikern längst als widerlegtes katholisches Wunschdenken gilt. Und er ist unseriös, weil er offenbar in voller Absicht diese Erkenntnisse der Forschung verschweigt Diese katholischen Nebel versucht das Buch von Kubitza zu vertreiben. Zu den 165 katholischen Fragen des Youcat, die die Grundlagen der katholischen Lehre betreffen, gibt er 165 kritische Antworten. Jugendliche und Erwachsene erfahren, wie fragwürdig und absurd viele zentrale Aussagen der katholischen Kirche sind. Und sie erkennen, was ihnen mit dem Youcat wirklich verkauft werden soll: keine Religion, sondern eine religiöse Ideologie. Dieses Buch wendet sich an alle, die sich für die katholische Kirche engagieren wollen oder dies bereits tun. Niemand sollte dort mittun, der nicht auch die kritischen Einwände kennt. Es zeigt aber auch nichtreligiösen Menschen, mit welchen unlauteren Mitteln und Tricks die katholische Kirche arbeitet, um Menschen zu fischen. - Ohne ein Geleitwort des Papstes.

Book Summary: Are you sometimes stressed, anxious, or emotional? Do you ever feel something is missing, even when you think you should be happy? Are there people with whom you dont get on well but wish you did? Have you ever wondered why you behave a certain way, do or dont do certain things, or have done something you now regret? This is not a typical self-help book, because self-help books are usually read by people who think they have a problem to solve. This book is for everyone. Using straightforward jargon-free language it discusses many of the difficult issues of life, most of which are likely to affect us or someone we know at one time or another. It includes short discussions of stress, relationships, love affairs, work, parenting, sibling rivalry, motherhood, divorce, weddings, Christmas, teenagers, arguments, criticism, depression, communication, childhood, bullying, chronic pain, self-harm, addiction, suicide, bereavement, kindness, abuse, the battle of the sexes and more. People who can stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them all have similar thoughts and attributes which can be learnt by anyone. The central theme of this book is self-esteem and how it is affected every day by our circumstances and the people we come across. We are usually unaware that it is our self-esteem that drives our emotions, thoughts, and actions. The authors clients suggested this book be written so anyone could learn how to stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them. Personal stories highlight how you can control or change how you feel about yourself, and how you can positively influence your life and the lives of everyone around you.

Book Summary: Le rapport au temps est révélateur d'un art de vivre, d'une époque, d'une civilisation. On a ainsi pu caractériser le mode de vie occidental par la modalité du « présentisme » (F. Hartog) ou de « l'accélération » (H. Rosa) pour décrire la dictature d'un présent qui accapare, en un monde de flux continus. Et si, à contretemps, l'on conviait l'idée d'éternité ? Tel est le défi relevé par des spécialistes de sciences des religions, de théologie, de philosophie, de littérature et de cinéma.
