Folks, let not this scandalous subject become in itself an occasion of scandal by being silent. I have been wanting to discuss this for a long time, and I am pleased that matto's comment received two up thumbs. But, I am disappointed that more are not commenting. This is coming from an 18th century moral theology manual. I mean, we reject sr. faustina for the pious errors found in her book. But, this is permissible? This can be "taught with confidence" as denzinger often responds. There is no way that bishops and cardinals are unaware of this teaching. Yet, the manual is in use. It is quoted by traditional clerics. Was it not our lady of la salette who said that the church has problems of sins of the flesh?
Here is st. peter damian commenting on sodomy - "Truly, this vice is never to be compared with any other vice because it surpasses the enormity of all vices.… It defiles everything, stains everything, pollutes everything. And as for itself, it permits nothing pure, nothing clean, nothing other than filth.
