Jesuit bites Church

St. Ignatius Loyola

A Jesuit dissenting from the Faith, or calling Church teaching into question, is the religious news world's equivalent of the  "dog bites man" story.  It's the opposite of news, because it happens all the time.   In today's example, an aged Jesuit (I suppose that's redundant) declares himself opposed to the requirement in some dioceses that lay employees affirm Church teaching.   Oaths make this Jesuit shudder, because they remind him of Senator McCarthy, plus they're too expansive, but not expansive enough and (yawn) serious discussion is called for.

St. Ignatius Loyola, pray for us.
