Kreeft on 7 Ways to Turn Catholics into PHONEYS

Here is a “reblog” from A Catholic Notebook. The post is Kreeft on 7 Ways to Turn Catholics into PHONEYS.  It begins thus.

A wonderful video!

7 Tendencies the Devil Might Use to Destroy the Culture

Dr. Peter Kreeft stood before an audience so large it threatened to cause Franciscan University’s Christ the King Chapel to burst at the seams.

Kreeft’s lecture, “How to Win the Culture War: A Christian Battle Plan for a Society in Crisis,” drew hundreds of Franciscan students, faculty, and guests to hear the Boston College philosophy professor—who has published over 63 books—speak on the fate of the Church. November 17, 2011

Kreeft used a seven-letter acronym, PHONEYS, to highlight society’s biggest problems
Politicization
Happy talk
Organizationalism
Neoworship
Egalitarianism
Yuppiedom
Spirituality

(continued here)

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Boston College and at the King’s College (Empire State Building), in New York City. As an enticement to get us to listen to Kreeft’s 45-minute presentation, Soutenus, the blogger at A Catholic Notebook, summarized Kreeft’s presentation.

Note that Kreeft begins the presentation by adopting the persona of Screwtape, the senior demon of C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters. Then, having “exposed” our enemy’s strategy, Kreeft resumes his own persona to propose a counter-strategy.

Well worth your time.
