Hey, Sullivan, I Don't Think The Word "Catholic" Means What You Think It Means

Ace of Spades and Lifelike Pundits examine the latest asininity from Saint Andrew.

Among his foolish utterances:

And there are those who simply believe that, by definition, God is unknowable to our limited, fallible human minds and souls. If God is ultimately unknowable, then how can we be so certain of what God's real position is on, say, the fate of Terri Schiavo? Or the morality of contraception? Or the role of women? Or the love of a gay couple? Also, faith for many of us is interwoven with doubt, a doubt that can strengthen faith and give it perspective and shadow. That doubt means having great humility in the face of God and an enormous reluctance to impose one's beliefs, through civil law, on anyone else.

Yes Andrew. God is totally unknowable. It says so right there in the Nicene Creed. In fact, having no idea about what God might possibly want from us is the very quintessence of what it means to be a Catholic!

Update: Hewitt gives Sullivan what for.
