They Get One Right

Pentecost Sunday


From the article: "In late March, the doctrinal committee of the US bishops’ conference warned the faithful about a book by Fordham University theologian Sister Elizabeth Johnson, Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God. The committee said that the book 'contains misrepresentations, ambiguities, and errors that bear upon the faith of the Catholic Church as found in Sacred Scripture, and as it is authentically taught by the Church’s universal magisterium.' The committee noted that it had a pastoral duty to issue the warning, given Sister Johnson’s prominence and popularity and the book’s use as a 'textbook for the study of God' at Catholic universities. The warning generated angry complaints from members of the Catholic left who always find it shocking and 'controversial' when bishops exert themselves to defend Church teaching."

Well done, U.S. bishops: you have warned people about an angry feminist agitator who is abusing her role to remake reality after her own image.
