Charity means toppling the powerful from their thrones and The cry of the poor (tags)
There is no distinction between structural violence, which is the basis of the capitalist social order, and counter-violence. "First of all, I would like to state that there is a violence from which all other violence derives: the violence of oppression." (Dom Helder Camara).
Question sanctions and The cry of the poor (tags)
In Germany, we tend to moralize and romanticize in politics. This prevents us from taking a sober view of world events. We fail to recognize that the U.S. is ruthlessly asserting its own interests, against enemy and friend. The interests of the EU and the U.S. have long since ceased to coincide.
"Pope Francis thinks politically" (tags)
"We are a society that has forgotten to cry and to sympathize. The globalization of indifference robs us of the ability to cry." Full of wisdom, the new pope says: "The greatness of a society is measured by how it treats the neediest." Modern society is barbaric, bloodless and cruel.

Fernando Lugo no tiene poncho que lo cubra (tags)
Ya no hay poncho que pueda encubrir la verdadera identidad pol?tica del cura Fernando Lugo
"Only the one who cries for the Jews may sing Gregorian" (tags)
Crying and singing, ethical engagement and praising God belong together. The great events of world history should be seen from below, from the perspective of the dismissed, suspicious, mistreated, powerless, oppressed and mocked. God's honor is the person who lives.
The Prophet and the Professor (tags)
Liberation theology insists the poor are our teachers and the church is not an end-in-itself. The church that serves itself is different than the church that serves the world. The church that wants to return to the 19th century with little interest in social issues is a caricature.
Liberation Theology (tags)
Theology of liberation understands itself as an historical and contextual theology, an alternative to European theology which is an imperialist theology for Latin American peoples. Liberation theology emphasizes structurally anchored sins like oppression and impunity.
Chávez: Netherlands and U.S. Planning Military Aggression Against Venezuela from Dutch Ant (tags)
"Today each year about 9.2 million children die before reaching their fifth year and 99.9 percent of these deaths occur in poorer countries. Infant mortality is 47 deaths per thousand live births, but is only 5 per thousand in rich countries. Life expectancy on the planet is 67 years, in rich countries it is 79, while in some poor nations is only 40 years. Additionally, there are 1.1 billion people without access to drinking water, 2.6 billion without sanitation services, over 800 million illiterate and 1.02 billion hungry people, that’s the global scenario. Now the cause, what is the cause? Let’s talk about the cause, let’s not evade responsibilities, and let’s not evade the depth of this problem. The cause, undoubtedly, I return to the theme of this whole disastrous panorama, is the destructive metabolic system of capital and its embodied model: Capitalism."

A very important letter I received. A very important list I send. (tags)
So, dear President Lula, I ask you to breathe in the example of President Barack Obama and to give us vigorous measures against the crisis that unemployes thousands of people also here.
Bilingual message to the people of the world and of France. (tags)
I saw also, in my "around-the-world" trip that there are other strange things happening in some areas of free publication of other countries. I propose that the responsible collectives do communicate more among themselves and that they get better organized with their communities, so we can better defend freedom and real democracy.
The Landless Workers Movement and the American "bubble"... (tags)
We all know that tiny and small business those that employ more, we all know that the smart guys of the market should cover the leak that they have produced and they are all free and happy while people like the federal policeman Protógenes suffers mysterious accidents.

Working for a Community of Life (tags)
Today Boff doesn't speak of liberation but of life protection for the excluded. Sixty years ago Gandhi explained the earth has enough for all people. That is still true today. But the earth will never produce enough for the squanderers.
Lujos que permite el Poder Teocrático (tags)
Los lujos del poder son capaces de seducir al más pintado, y el teólogo de la liberación Tercermundista Fernando Lugo es un buen ejemplo.
Christianity without Christ (tags)
Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) sought to introduce Christianity into Christendom when the state religion had become confortable and indistinguishable from the world. Kierkegaard like Boff calls us to authenticity in a world of reversible cups and self-righteousness.
A Missionary of Ignorance (tags)
The king of arrogance and the missionary of ignorance are part of a frozen elite consciousness of fear and indifferent reason where there are no alter-natives and bankruptcies are just normal business practice. Another world is possible of open arms, not clenched fists!
Freedom: A Christological Contribution (tags)
Christmas is a revolution, a new beginning and a change of loyalties where weakness becomes strength and power is seen as blindness. Poverty of spirit keeps us from the idolatry of riches and power as ends-in-themselves.
Spirituality and Liberation: Segundo Galilea (tags)
Advent is a time of beginning as crisis can be a time to pause and gain new perspectives and priorities. We are called to be internation-alistas, to create a new language and a new mathematics. The world will be changed when people speak as Jesus spoke, in a way that scandalizes and attracts by its power
Leonardo Boff: Eternal Rebel and Liberation Theologian (tags)
Francis called all beings and living organisms brothers and sisters.. Francis lived hundreds of years ago but may be more current than many people nowadays. He is a new person and we are old in the sense of this ecological attitude.
Rebellion of the Spirit against Disorder (tags)
Liberation theology as a protest against suffering is not limited to one region.. Solidarity is really a basic quality of a person but is gradually lost in a culture of material values. We must hear the cry of our earth and the cry of the poor.
"The US is a Terrorist State": Leonardo Boff (tags)
Everyone feels we are on a wrong track because we do not have a social contract any more..The US is a terrorist state. The US acts with violence, crushes human rights and tortures Americans and foreigners.. As humanity, we stand at a crossroads.
Liberation Theology and Globalization (tags)
Economic globalization leads to the exclusion of the masses..When world hunger increases, we must change the nature of the world economy to survive..We are all enslaved by a paradigm that makes us enemies of nature.
The Future of Theology (tags)
"The social state is dismantled in favor of the globalization of industry..The democratic idea of equality is incompatible with ever-greater inequalities..If globalization produces third world conditions, theology of liberation logically becomes universal.."
Political and Spiritual Corruption (tags)
Hope is what sets us apart from the rest of creation. We can go beyond everything past and present in the power of the coming, the power of the promise. This was Jurgen Molt-mann's discovery in a British prisoner of war camp in World War II.
Rebellion of the Spirit (tags)
"For me, this triad (justice, peace and preser-vation of creation) is a little summary of the good news of the gospel. Even if the nature of utopia is never to be completely fulfilled, it shows us the way like a compass."
Bolton, Posada, Cuba Action Day and MORE! (tags)
The struggle over John Bolton's confirmation, the presence of Cuban Terrorist Luis Posada Carriles in the United States, and a successful effort to lobby the US congress to end travel and trade restrictions against US citizens and businesses who wish to engage in normal commerce with Cuba
A World Civil Society is Arising: Leonardo Boff (tags)
In porto Alegre spiritual, human and ethical values were central..Everyone senses that we are on a wrong way since we don't have a social contract any more. This wrong way only leads to ears as in Iraq.. Relying on force for world order is very dangerous.
Nature as Healer and Teacher (tags)
Nature is a healer and teacher, a wounded healer and scorned teacher, a majestic fountain of awe, wonder and inspiration.. Nature cries in pain because she is reduced to a free good, external or sink by a one-dimensional economism.
