Thread Name: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
'standard Catholic teaching tells people that a rule does not apply when it leads people to do wrong. As always, conscience is the final arbiter'.
When did this 'always' begin, Joe; and this 'standard' become standard? Did the 'rule ... not apply', then to the Holy Office in C16 Spain? Or were they doing no 'wrong' in condemning 'hertics' to the auto-da-fe even tho many of these might have pleaded their 'conscience'? Did the judges consult their consciences? To what effect?

Just asking.
