The Taylor Report: June 15th, 2015
Featured Guest: Ted Schmidt, teacher, author of several books, including Never Neutral: A Teaching Life (2012), journalist, political activist, liberation theology activist.
Ted Schmidt discusses Claude Lacaille’s recently released book, Rebel Priest in the Time of Tyrants, Mission to Haiti, Ecuador and Chile and asserts that Lacaille brings back into focus the importance of seeing life from the role of the oppressed people and that deserting Vatican II was a betrayal of a moral mission to serve the masses, especially the oppressed.
Schmidt praises Pope Francis, who declared El Salvadoran Archbishop Romero a martyr and who is turning back to the Vactican II mandates based on discussion, inclusion, justice for humanity.
