Enlightened Catholicism: Reservations About This Notion of "Mental Reservations". The Murphy Report And The Irish Abuse Crisis
Happy belated Thanksgiving to all my readers. I had intended to take the weekend off and keep it light, but this one really needs to be put out there. The Catholic Church is the most famous intersections of Church and State. It is interesting how it will conveniently choose whether it is a National Government and subject to diplomatic protocols or the ruling body of the Catholic Church and therefore subject to the protocols described in Canon law, and neither approach is the correct one for certain issues. I wonder how the Vatican would react if Vatican City were sanctioned by the UN for various human rights offences--the persecution of homosexuals, the abuse of children, the suppression of women . . .
