The bishops also voted to issue a document on contraception. The standard liberal theologian interviewed for the article says that it was probably done to please the Vatican.
In any case, it seems fairly pointless. We don’t need more pamphlets. What we need are bishops and priests willing to be courageous and preach the truth from pulpits on Sunday.
Just another reason to show that these bishops’ meetings are essentially pointless. At best, they do no harm. At worst, they muddy the waters and make bishops afraid to do the right thing.
