Bring ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Tactics to Church, Theologian Suggests

Catholic Culture reports:

Tom Beaudoin, a Fordham theology professor and contributor to the Americamagazine site, suggests that dissident Catholics should mirror the tactics of the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators.

“This could be the Catholic version of the Arab Spring, to combat the long Catholic winter,” writes Beaudoin–who seems to view the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon in an entirely positive light. He believes that the New York demonstration may “embody visions of a possible future that influence the larger social imagination,” and opines that protests can “become like religious ritual.”

‘The Catholic version of the Arab Spring’?! What a wicked thing to say.

His comments in full are here.
