A philosophy professor at the University of Notre Dame has declared in the New York Times that the bishops no longer decide morality in the Church and that “the immorality of birth control is no longer a teaching of the Catholic Church.
Gary Gutting, Endowed Chair in Philosophy, makes the typical muddles of how the teaching magisterium is actually the “faithful” and not the bishops in union with the Pope. Of course “faithful” is defined as those who agree with my position. That a majority opinion constitutes truth and you have to wonder why we aren’t all Arians if this is so. If the Israelites got to vote up and down the Ten Commandments would any have survived? As G.K. Chesterton stated “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”
Oh and will anybody be surprised that they professor teaches from the works of Peter Singer?
