McLuhan und die Kirche I

Marshall McLuhan in einem Interview 1977:

"I never came into the church as a person who was being taught Catholic doctrines. I came in on my knees. That is the only way in. When people start praying they need truths; that's all. You don't come into the Church through ideas and concepts, and you cannot leave by mere disagreement. It has to be a loss of faith, a loss of participation. You can tell: when people leave the Church, they have quit praying. The active relating to the Church's prayer and sacraments is not through ideas. Any Catholic who today has an intellectual disagreement with the Church has an illusion. You cannot have an intellectual disagreement with the Church. That's meaningless. The Church is not an intellectual institution. It is a superhuman institution." (Zitiert unter anderem bei Derrick de Kerckhove: Passion and Precision: The Faith of Marshall McLuhan)
