Matthew Fox

March 6, 1993 | From Religious News Service
A Roman Catholic theologian who has engaged in celebrated feuds with church authorities since 1985 has been expelled by the Vatican from the religious order he joined 34 years ago. The Rev. Matthew Fox, 52, a popular teacher of a brand of theology he calls "creation spirituality," received notice of his dismissal Wednesday.
I'm not the confrontational type. But I can be a real noodge if my heart is in it. And, I figure, what good is a job like this if you can't bug the people in power? So I pressed my advantage recently when I saw Fox Entertainment Group President John Matoian at a press party. I wanted to talk about family. I wanted to talk about quality. Both of which, ironically, I had found on a Fox television show.

The latest U.S. Catholic priest to be disciplined by the Vatican said Thursday that he will take a six-month leave from lecturing to give the church "an honorable way out" of its directive silencing him for a year but said that he eventually may be forced to leave the priesthood.
Worshipers danced to a pulsating rock beat in the darkened basement of Grace Cathedral. Around the room, screens and monitors filled with shifting images: planets in motion, planes dropping bombs, plants sprouting from the ground. A large globe hung over the circular altar, projecting the face of the minister as he declared, "Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again." Welcome to the Planetary Mass: part rave, part New Age mysticism, part Anglican church service.

Matthew Fox, the avant-garde priest defrocked by the Vatican for his free-spirited theology, will mark his new identity as an Episcopalian with a high-tech, high-decibel "Rave Mass" later this year in the basement of Grace Cathedral. Fox got the idea for the head-banger liturgy after visiting a band of unorthodox young Anglicans in England--where the "Rave in the Nave" features loud music, women dancing in bikinis and video monitors flashing messages such as "Eat God."

Looks like some drama from that mystical island in "Lost" still lingers, as two of the show's former stars -- Dominic Monaghan and Matthew Fox -- are caught up in a cringe-worthy conflict stemming from Twitter. A fan tweeting at Monaghan on Sunday suggested he recruit former co-worker Fox to open an account on the social network, and Dominic wasn't shy in expressing his lack of enthusiasm over the request. "He beats women. No thanks," Monaghan responded . When the fan pressed about their "good times," the actor elaborated on the charge.

Matthew Fox got a bit lost early Friday morning in Oregon, where the actor was reportedly headed for some fast food but wound up in jail. Fox was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence around 3:30 a.m. near Bend, the town where he lives with his family, according to TMZ.  The outlet says Fox was traveling with an unidentified passenger seeking a late-night snack, but wound up in police custody. He was apparently released later on Friday, TMZ reported. While a rep for Fox did not immediately return a Ministry request for comment, this isn't the "Party of Five" star's first run-in with the law. In August 2011, on location in Ohio, Fox reportedly was detained by police.

MATTHEW FOX is doing double duty these days. He's one of the stars of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning ABC series, "Lost," which returns to the network's lineup on Feb. 7, and he's branching out in the feature film world. Fox's first major movie, "We Are Marshall," opens Friday. But that success comes with a price: The boyish-looking 40-year-old actor says he wrestles constantly with the need to balance his work life and his family life.
