The Sort of Unity the Devil Loves

When the pope teaches about sexual morality, lefties tell him to shut up if he doesn’t have a degree in reproductive medicine. When he teaches about financial morality, righties tell him to shut up if he doesn’t have a degree in economics. To achieve the feat of ignoring him, the left appeals to “primacy of conscience” and the right appeals to “prudential judgment”. Nobody wastes an atom of breath talking about docility or assuming that you should *especially* try listening and learning from the Church when it challenges you or makes you nervous or uncomfortable.
