Just Love. A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics
The title of this post suggests an authoritative view of the Church, a well researched and argued position of some respectable theologian, but it is not.......Unfortunately, sr. Margaret A. Farley R. S. M. (see the image above) exposed herself as a completely deluded and lost soul. In her book she advocates acceptance of homosexual acts and unions, divorce, masturbation and re-marriage. No sane person would call these views Catholic. What shocks me is not the fact, that some deeply confused sister wrote an utterly confusing book. The Church has a rich experience of disobedient priests, monks and nuns (some became even famous, e.g Luther, Hus). What is shocking in this case is the fact she wasn't corrected by her superiors. The basic search on Google reveals sr. Margaret departed from the teaching of the Church as early as 1984 expressing support for the killing of unborn innocents (Margaret Farley). The CDF action (CDF notifies) against sr. Margaret is a good step forward, but it should have been done long time ago. How can the Church effectively proclaim the Gospel of the Lord, if the house is divided? How can we expect to attract young women to religious life in union with Christ, if what they see and hear is the spirit of falsehood and lies?! Thank God not all is gloom and doom; the young generation seems to have very little interest in self-deluding social constructs only loosely associated with Christianity. May God give sr. Margaret the grace of repentance before her death. John Paul II., pray for us!
