SEND HIM TO THE CORNER - MAKE HIM WEAR THE DUNCE CAP
This is a Catholic theologian who doesn't know his Catholic theology!
MILWAUKEE, June 29, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a letter to the New York Times on Monday, Daniel C. Maguire, a professor of moral theology at Marquette University and prominent Catholic dissident, stated that bishops should stop "harassing" Catholic politicians who vote in favor of abortion.
Maguire drew on St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas who both thought that to allow certain moral evils would prevent “greater evils.” He further cited Aquinas, who said that the “wise legislator” imitates God, who “tolerates certain evils lest greater evils ensue.”
The letter continued, “Similarly, today legislators who truly think abortion immoral could vote to keep it legal since greater evils, multiple deaths of women (especially poor women) from botched abortions as seen before Roe v. Wade, would follow.”
Phulease! That tired old argument has been refuted countless times. The man should be fired for incompetence. What sort of inferior quality theologians are colleges hiring these days? Marquette is supposed to be a university with a reputation for quality, but obviously they are falling down on the job!
