Misguided UST sexuality course distorts Catholic teaching

[As Archbishop Paglia (President of the “new and improved” Pontifical Academy for Life) has said that FrankenPope’s Amoris Laetitia “completes” the teaching of JP2’s Familiaris Consortio, doesn’t this course “complete” the teaching of JP2’s TOB?]

From the Cardinal Newman Society’s Report Card/News Roundup for January 12, 2018:

The “Catholic” University of St. Thomas in Minnesota is offering a course on “Theology of Sex/Gender/Body,” which “prompts students to reflect on their vocation as a sexual, gendered, and embodied being, and to do so interreligiously.”

It’s clearly not a Catholic theology course, as one should expect from a Catholic university that holds to the truth of Catholic teaching. According to the university’s website, the course is “an introduction to theological reflection on sex, gender, and the body in the Christian tradition and the Islamic religious traditions.” The class takes “into consideration how theology has collaborated with patriarchal, imperial, ethnic, heteronormative, and socio‐economic powers.”

Worse, the course description also states that its “central focus will be on contemporary feminist, queer, and post‐colonial theologies that attempt to undermine oppressive systems in Asian, Latin American, North American, Middle Eastern, and/or other contexts.”

  1. Another mention of the “new and improved” Pontifical Academy for Life: I think “Life” has to do with the tenure of its members and nothing to do with its mission.
