text & commentary

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 14, 2003

An sardonic Jesuit theologian (retired) had this to say about Cardinal Keith O'Brien's Profession of Faith:

"I further state that I accept and intend to defend the law on ecclesiastical celibacy as it is proposed by the Magisterium of the Catholic Church; I accept and promise to defend the ecclesiastical teaching about the immorality of the homosexual act; I accept and promise to promulgate always and everywhere what the Church's Magisterium teaches on contraception. So help me God and these Holy Scriptures which I touch with my hand."

This wouldn't have been necessary once: now that it is necessary, it's probably also useless.
