Atheism for Catholics?

Many orthodox Catholics wonder where the National Catholic Reporter is “coming from.” Well, consider the following revelation. The Editor of that paper said in its May 14 issue: “Ever since people first raised eyes to heaven, whether in fear or adulation, in culture after culture, a priesthood has emerged, women sometimes but usually men…. The world put the divine in their hands. The Catholic priesthood is perhaps the most organized expression…of this…” (italics added).

So the Catholic priesthood is manmade, not ordained by Heaven. And if the priesthood — the pivot of the sacramental system — is manmade, then Catholicism is a human invention, which is what the village atheist has been contending all along.
