Time To Put Our House In Order...

Before the Catholic blogosphere took off, the only sources of information for ordinary Catholics were papers such as The Pill. Unfortunately, The Pill has, for quite some time, been giving rather a lot of publishing space to individuals who are actually opposed to Church teaching. One such individual is Prof. Tina Beattie, who, as director of the Digby Stuart Research Centre for Catholic Studies at the University of Roehampton, certainly should not be writing against the Church's position on subjects such as abortion and same-sex "marriage."

If The Pill wishes to campaign against the teachings of the Church, then it should not be sold as a Catholic publication, and definitely not be made available for sale in Catholic parishes and cathedrals.

Twitch of the mantilla to Deacon Nick Donnelly at Protect the Pope.

Do go to Protect the Pope to read a fuller story.

I suggest that anyone who feels strongly about Professor Tina Beaty should write to Archbishop Smith. Roehamptin is in his patch.

The Tablet broke with the Church over Humanae Vitae before you were born, dear Mulier and nothing was done about the owner, publisher, editor, staff.

This mag has produced anti-Catholic Church views for two generations and fed the two generations of dissenting Catholics in the Church here in England. Why is it sold in so many churches? Why is it in so many retreat houses, abbeys, and convents?

One reason why the Church in England is very weak has been the tolerance of dissent. I do not expect to see it change soon.
