Terry's problem...

Many (eg Fr Finigan, James Preece, Damian Thompson et al) have posted about the odd fact of an employee of the Catholic Church charged with supporting marriage... attacking the Church's teaching on marriage.

I think the heart of Terry's problem is to be found in this revealing sentence: "We all have something to add and, ultimately, we all have to make our own minds up about the paradigm that works for us."

Here he reveals his philosophy: subjective and relativist. That is simply not compatible with Catholicism or any serious Christianity, for it denies the teaching authority of the Church, the authority of Scripture, the authority of Christ, the authority of God...

Damian Thompson asks: "What is Archbishop Nichols going to do about Terry Prendergast?"

So far, there's been a worrying silence. I hope it doesn't go on for ever. Abp. Nichols' approval of "All That I Am" as a text for sex-ed in Birmingham Archdiocese suggests he's less than reliably orthodox in this area of the Church's teaching. I hope I'm wrong.
