L’Affair Quest Chapter 4

The public back and forth between Elizabeth Johnson and the USCCB Doctrine Committee continues with the professor’s latest lesson. It has seemed to me the bishop’s most vocal defenders have been among those who have not read the book. Including perhaps, some members of the original committee.

Teresa Berger said of this:

Gender has become such a contentious issue in the church that any exploration of it, in terms of language or in the larger question of the nature of God, is viewed as a threat to the basic givens of the faith.

Have the bishops permitted ideology to trample theology?
