Richard Posner does not know much about theology, especially the Catholic sort

Read Judge Posner’s original piece here (and especially the replies in the combox). And then read John Breen’s response at the Mirror of Justice.

I have, for years, been in awe of Judge Posner’s imposing and impressive intellect. In fact, in my philosophy of law class I require my students to read several of his articles. But on the matter of Catholic moral theology, I will pass on the prince of law and economics and defer to the wisdom of the Prince of Priests.
