Catholic university engages atheism head-on

There are 5 comments on the story from Jan 25, 2013, titled Catholic university engages atheism head-on. In it, reports that:

Talk about an unlikely course in an unlikely place.

The main chapel at Jesuit-run Regis College at the University of Toronto is adorned with stained glass windows, icons of Mary and Joseph, and the Stations of the Cross. The eight-week course, which meets every Wednesday afternoon, is on atheism. Or more precisely, “Responding to 21st-Century Atheism.”

It’s an attempt, says the Rev. Scott Lewis, for people of faith to understand and come to terms with the increasingly muscular secularism and atheism that has arisen in Western societies over the past generation.

Hitler worked CLOSELY with Pope Pius in converting Germanic society and supporting the church. The Church absorbed Nazi ideals and preached them as part of their sermons in turn Hitler placed Catholic teachings in public education.

"Atheism “has become militant, aggressive and proselytizing,” said Lewis"
Atheism isn't becoming anything except more common as religion declines. That's all.

The Catholic Church isn't 'confronting atheism head-on', it is simply that Catholicism is essentially sectarian nonsense based on superstitions like the three-for-one god offer.
