Few people  have done as much scholarly research into the underlying theology of the Neocatechumenal Way as has done Guam resident, Chuck White. While his website, The Thoughtful Catholic, is devoted to a variety of topics, he has devoted a great amount of his "thoughtfulness" to the underlying issues that are at the root of the problem with the Neocatechumenal Way. After the Pacific News Center interview with him yesterday, I asked him to move his research, at least temporarily, to his home page so it would be easier to find, and he has. 

Mr. White's research is critical to our endeavor on JungleWatch because without it, the current spat would just seem like a fight between the old and the new. It isn't. It is actually a fight between the old and the even older - the even older being the age old inclination to mold a god of our own image. I get accused of this all the time though no one actually substantiates those allegations. On the contrary, Mr. White DOES substantiate his allegations, and those being that there are many things very different about the theology of the Neocatechumenal Way. 

Visit his website and bookmark it.
