Vatican to Sister Farley about her sex book: “Just Love” is just wrong!

1. General problems
The author does not present a correct understanding of the role of the Church’s Magisterium as the teaching authority of the Bishops united with the Successor of Peter, which guides the Church’s ever deeper understanding of the Word of God as found in Holy Scripture and handed on faithfully in the Church’s living tradition. In addressing various moral issues, Sr. Farley either ignores the constant teaching of the Magisterium or, where it is occasionally mentioned, treats it as one opinion among others. Such an attitude is in no way justified, even within the ecumenical perspective that she wishes to promote. Sr. Farley also manifests a defective understanding of the objective nature of the natural moral law, choosing instead to argue on the basis of conclusions selected from certain philosophical currents or from her own understanding of “contemporary experience”. This approach is not consistent with authentic Catholic theology.

2. Specific problems
Among the many errors and ambiguities of this book are its positions on masturbation, homosexual acts, homosexual unions, the indissolubility of marriage and the problem of divorce and remarriage.

Unfortunately, there’s much more

Editor’s note: This person obviously made no effort to accommodate the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, in her writing. It makes you wonder what her intentions might have been as an allegedly Catholic sister, and a member of the now infamous LCWR (Leadership Council of Women Religious) group.

As a former Yale Divinity School professor, Sister Farley may have considered her own positions on these matters to be superior to those of the bishops of the Catholic Church.  That doesn’t inspire much confidence in the Yale Divinity School now, does it?

It also makes you wonder how and where she obtained her information!

This is just more shameless and scandalous business as usual for these self affirmed “post-Christian” ladies.
