Frank Weathers points us to the website RealClearScience in which a science-geek is shocked to discover that the Church’s retrograde, woman-hating, dogmatic, and theocratic attitudes on contraception are actually…(wait for it) SCIENTIFIC! And what’s more, NFP actually….WORKS WELL!?!
(Pause to allow for recovery from fainting spell)
I’m picking on the guy a little because he still can’t manage to hide his knee-jerk anti-Catholicism, but at least he had the decency to investigate his biases. That’s how it starts, people. Discover the Church is right about something like this one day, and find yourself signing up for RCIA the next. All my readers who are hip to the Church’s teaching on NFP should wander on over to Real Clear Science and show Ross some love. Seriously. The guy is actually trying to understand. Give him the props and support he deserves.
