CWN Editor's Note: Stating that “to not address it is to stick my head in the sand,” Bishop Edward Rice said he agreed with the analysis of Ralph Martin of Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. Martin wrote, “How many still believe that there is really a hell and that, unless we repent from such serious sins before we die, we will go there? Have we ever heard from leading churchmen, even in Rome, in recent years, that adultery, fornication and homosexual relations are not only ‘irregular,’ but gravely sinful?”
