If a Catholic were truly searching for the meaning of Catholic morality, he/she would be confused on the Church's position after reading this book. The Author seems to be very contradictory in his statements. For example, he states that the presumption on moral issues is on the side of the magisterium, but them praises the public dissent position of theologians and others in the Church. He insists that there are moral absolutes, but them does his best to prove there are not. The same with ontic evils. He insists that there are ontic evils, but does his hardest to deny them. Interesting, he never mentions abortion on the list of evils. It is clear that dissent and disbelief take precedence over the magisterial position in the Church. The copyright of this book is 1985. I hope it has been updated more on the "presumption of the magisterium position."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
