A Thank-you to the CDF

Sr. Margaret Farley wrote Just Love in 2010, a work purporting to give Christian justifications for immoral practices. The Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has been in correspondance with Sr. Farley since 2010, attempting to correct the errors of the book. Finally, on June 4th, the Vatican’s patience with this wayward sister and dissident theologian ran out, and the CDF published a condemnation of the errors within the book, and stated that it could not be used “as a valid expression of Catholic teaching.”

Sr Farley is a theologian and member of the Sisters of Mercy, and though she does not possess a teaching office in the Roman Catholic Church, is nonetheless associated by laymen with that Church. By dissenting from Catholic teaching and setting up a false, alternate ‘magisterium,’ Sr. Farley is a source of public scandal and a danger to the faithful. The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is doing exactly what they should be doing. Bravo.
