... or they could just ignore it

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 02, 2005

In a covering letter sent to bishops along with the Doomsday Document, the Vatican said that homosexuals should not teach in seminaries. The usual suspects are scrambling for a way to tiptoe around that little bombshell, and the Washington Post reports:

Some experts on church law said yesterday that the letter is nonbinding and can simply be ignored by bishops.

Well, maybe. But experience shows that even if a Vatican directive is binding, it can still be ignored by bishops.

Binding or not, we know what the Vatican wants. Now we'll see which bishops want the same thing.
