Funny how the teachings of the Lord have been so turned around! I think I'll stick to what the Bible says...

Sounds like you and ckca were in the same class in "moral theology"! (BTW, sometime when you'e looking at what the Bible says, try Matthew 5:38-39.)

Please refute this from Fr. Rutler's article. Otherwise acknowledge your error.

As the Church's teaching on contraception cannot "develop" in a way that would declare its intrinsic evil to be good, so the right of a state to execute criminals cannot "develop" so that its intrinsic good becomes evil. For Cardinal John Henry Newman, development of doctrine involves "preservation of type." Changes in the way a doctrine is expressed and applied cannot alter its essence.
