Doubting Thomas (Aquinas) on Private and Public Killing (111417) by Christopher O. Tollefsen is College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of South Carolina.
Scholars and Catholic theologians know that Augustine and Aquinas favored public killing of “heretics,” unlike the average Catholic and “Christian.” Quote from the above article: “But Aquinas, for various reasons, including of course Scriptural reasons, carved out a clear exception to the default position against intentional killing when it came to those with public authority for the common good. I have argued before at Public Discourse that his arguments for that exception are exceptionally poor: his claim that in sinning a sinner reduces himself to the status of a beast and loses his dignity is false, for the sinner’s dignity is consequent upon his nature, which does not change when he sins. And his claim that citizens are related to the polity like parts of an organism to the whole, and thus may be excised for the good of the whole, is also false: the state exists for persons, and not persons for the state. Moreover, Brugger has shown that the Scriptural warrant for thinking public authorities should be granted the exception is not as strong as St. Thomas thought.”
When religion (Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.) and its adherents persecute true believers, they actually persecute Christ. Paul the apostle persecuted “Christians” but Jesus said to him at his conversion, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?” (Acts 9.4, 22.7, 26.14). These religions and their adherents actually believe that that they are serving God when they kill those true believes whom they label as heretics. (John 16.2).
Excerpts from Texas Declaration of Independence: “… When the Federal Republican Constitution of their country, which they have sworn to support, no longer has a substantial existence, and the whole nature of their government has been forcibly changed, without their consent, from a restricted federative republic, composed of sovereign states, to a consolidated central military despotism, in which every interest is disregarded but that of the army and the priesthood, both the eternal enemies of civil liberty, the everready minions of power, and the usual instruments of tyrants…. In this expectation they have been cruelly disappointed, inasmuch as the Mexican nation has acquiesced in the late changes made in the government by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, who having overturned the constitution of his country, now offers us the cruel alternative, either to abandon our homes, acquired by so many privations, or submit to the most intolerable of all tyranny, the combined despotism of the sword and the priesthood…. It denies us the right of worshipping the Almighty according to the dictates of our own conscience, by the support of a national religion, calculated to promote the temporal interest of its human functionaries, rather than the glory of the true and living God….”
Catholicism and Protestantism have never stood for separation of church and State, religious liberty, or freedom of conscience. As The Trail of Blood of the Martyrs of Jesus proves, Catholic theology teaches that “heretics” who refuse to convert are to be killed. Yet, the tireless efforts of Catholics and Protestants to deceive continue, as witnessed by the following conference sponsored by the Witherspoon Institute and the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion : “Here I Stand: Conscience, Reformation, and Religious Freedom Across the Centuries”. The following is a copy of the webpage advertising that conference (Click the image to go to the webpage):
Article: The Dark Side of the Reformation, by Joseph Farah (October 11, 2017). This article tells the truth about Jewish persecution by Luther and Calvin, but fails to point out that the true New Testament Churches and Christians (who believed in separation of church and state, believer’s baptism, etc.) were also persecuted by Protestants who, like their harlot mother, believed in union of church and state. The article still indicates that these persecutors were carrying out the mission of God – Lies! No follower of Christ persecutes others because of their religious beliefs. The theologies of Luther and Calvin were still highly heretical at best. Joseph Farah still teaches that thre First Amendment does not separate church and state, another Catholic and Protestant lie. The First Amendment does not separate God and state, nor does it require the state to operate under God, but it does separate church and state. To understand this, see the writings of Jerald Finney. See, for a good starting point, the short article “Is Separation of Church and State Found in the Constitution?“ The Trail of Blood of the Martyrs of Jesus fully explains this matter.
