Who’s behind Spadaro, et al?

Over the last few days it feels like the news is coming in at firehose volume and force. And, from the onset, I’ll just say now that the moderation queue is ON. A lot of the firehose sensation has to do … Continue reading

The curious omission in @AntonioSpadaro attack piece: Reagan’s “Evil Empire”… MISSING

Jesuit Fr. Antonio “2+2=5” Spadaro, in his attack on Americans, especially American conservatives, in Inciviltà cattolica, along with his coauthor from Argentina, left a curious omission. Spadaro tars two American presidents with the brush of “Manichaenism”. At times this mingling of politics, morals and … Continue reading

Archbp. Chaput responds to Jesuit Fr. Antonio “2+2=5” Spadaro and La Civiltà Cattolica

UPDATE: One of you readers caught this and posted in the combox. Comment: To submit a reply to Archbishop Chaput’s column, the anti-spam quiz currently is “What is 2 plus 2?” Very shrewd. This will prevent Fr. Antonio “2+2=5” Spadaro … Continue reading

Robert Royal on the anti-American Spadaro/Figueroa smear

The well-deserved fallout continues for the vicious anti-American attack piece penned at Inciviltà cattolica by Jesuit Fr Antonio “2+2=5” Spadaro, who is also so interested in the life and works of Pier Vittorio Tondelli that he created his own website about him (HERE). Today I read at The … Continue reading

Jesuit Fr. Spadaro’s ‘Apologia pro nugis suis’

Jesuit Fr Antonio Spadaro must be feeling the heat resulting from his poorly conceived anti-American hit piece in Civiltà Cattolica (now aka Inciviltà cattolica) HERE. He gave an interview to Jesuit-run Amerika Magazine (no, this isn’t at all incestuous) in which he tries … Continue reading

If “2+2” can equal “5” in theology, then it can also equal “9” and “catfish”

The other day, Jesuit Fr. Antonio Spadaro, who associates himself very closely with the Holy Father, tweeted this: Antics like Cameli’s [HERE] can only be topped by Jesuit Fr. Antonio Spadaro’s tweet yesterday. Theology is not #Mathematics. 2 + 2 in … Continue reading

CRUX: An exercise in contrasts concerning ‘Amoris laetitia’

At Crux there were a pair of pieces which were in sharp contrast. First, take note of Austen Ivereigh’s lengthy (and rather whiny) interview with Jesuit Fr. Antonio Spadaro.  HERE   He’s sooooo misunderstood!  And he tells us about that at jesuitical length. … Continue reading
