1 Glenn Beck's Grand Unifying Theory of Obdicut  Mon, Apr 15, 2013 4:56:35pm

Honeymoon over.

I must confess that I don’t know all of the LCWR’s positions, but I do know that the church’s positions on birth control and homosexuality are more than just the sort of thing that can evolve. They are defined by core doctrines of faith that would require a complete overhaul if they are going to change, and that isn’t going to happen lightly. For example, I am all in favor of marriage equality, but I can understand why the Catholic Church has the position it does. The way it was taught to me was that marriage was not necessarily for procreation (as knuckleheads would have you believe) but the participants had to be open to it. IOW, an impotent man could marry (miracles happen), but not a sterile man (I guess that was pushing the envelope too far). Anyway, with gay people this is completely incompatible, and no pope is going to just sign a paper and overturn a thousand or more years of teachings lightly.

No, they’re not. The homosexuality thing is extremely recent. So is birth control. Why do you think they’re really old? They evolved into their current form.

re: #3 Glenn Beck’s Grand Unifying Theory of Obdicut

Okay the birth control thing is actually very old, but for a long time it was of very low importance in Catholic teaching. It was an accepted ‘we teach this, we know no one follows it, that’s fine’ stance.

Last year, a Vatican report said the LCWR had “serious doctrinal problems” and promoted “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith,” criticizing it for taking a soft line on issues such as birth control and homosexuality.

Dislike

This isn’t too surprising, although it is disappointing.

Still, these sorts of things won’t change overnight. I am somewhat relieved and optimistic about some of the more symbolic things this new Pope has done. I am hopeful the RCC’s approach can change. (But I wouldn’t have the patience to endure it, hence I am Episcopalian).
