The Catholic Theological Society of America, in their annual meeting, considered a resolution yesterday about the HHS contraceptive mandate. As you might imagine, hilarity ensued before the resolution was tabled.
You see, the poor theologians kinda’/sorta’ want to defend religious liberty because they’re perenially yelping about their own religious freedom to take white-out to the Catechism but… and this is a big “but”… many, as you might have heard, have mixed feelings about contraception. And the poor theologians had to decide if they really wanted to be seen as being on the side of the bishops vs. the beloved Obama administration?
What’s a 21st century Catholic theologian to do?
