Commonweal’s courageous willingness to stand with the 95% majority

Commonweal’s courageous willingness to stand with the 95% majority

By Phil Lawler | Jun 08, 2018

In a Commonweal editorial, urging Pope Francis to “revisit” (that is, scrap) Humanae Vitae, Paul Baumann quotes the same magazine’s words from 1967:

“What matters is choosing that course which best serves the Christian and human good, not that course which promises to enhance or diminish the church’s image, position in the world, or psychological attraction.”

Let’s see if I’ve got this right: A “vocal minority of conservative Catholics” upholds Humanae Vitae because that encyclical is so popular, while the brave members of the Commonweal crowd defy public opinion by endorsing contraception? Riiight.

Ah, for the righteous joy known only to those who are bold enough to hold the most fashionable opinions, and clever enough to make water flow downhill!
