The Minneapolis Strib shows once again the stunning cluelessness of journalists about Catholic Faith

Antonin Scalia differs from the Pope on a matter of prudential judgment, therefore, says the Strib, Catholic teaching is a wide open cafeteria for Scalia and pretty much everybody. Memo to the Strib: have your people read my essay “Catholic Officialdom and Theological Ambiguity” The Magisterium does not operate on the basis “That which is not forbidden is compulsory”. The faithful do not navigate by looking for diktats from Rome on whether to crack their eggs on the pointy or round ends. Using our brains does not constitute a rebellious act of private judgment in defiance of the Church.
