Why I am not a good ethicist

Author: Fr. Jonathan Tobias

It would say, too, that the Islamization of Europe calls not for a Crusade, but for repentance … and this for the simple reason that any prophet, like Amos, would have no trouble recognizing the new Islamic Jihad for what it really is: another incarnation of the Assyrians, a harbinger and agent of Dies Irae.

This is what prophecy would probably say. And it goes without saying that this is not what Raboteau and all the respective denominational social and moral issues committees would ever say.

They wouldn’t say it because they are ethicists.

And that is the problem of the age, my friends: ethics and prophecy do not mix. And I’m afraid they can’t.
