Kevin Smith uses 283 words to get to the penultimate sentence in his answer to today’s Ottawa Citizen Ask the Religion Experts question: “Is one ever really capable of knowing God?”
The simple answer is it’s impossible to know God as there is no God.
Kevin Smith’s answer is a smackdown to all the other experts on the panel and most especially to the Rev. Geoffrey Kerslake, a priest of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Ottawa. Of course, consistent with the style of Roman Catholic hierarchy everywhere, Kerslake supports his argument with appeals to authority: 20th century theologian, Karl Rahner, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Blessed Pope John Paul II. Kerslake is another Catholic pseudo-intellelectual trying to fool all the people all the time.
Thank you Kevin for your blunt and unequivocal answer!
