Earlier this month, the Catholic League issued a news release in response to an April 29, 2008 media advisory titled “Pope Gets Pass on Church Abuse History” issued by Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting, which subsequently defended its initial advisory. The Catholic League then responded to FAIR’s response.
Got all that?
The Catholic League and FAIR’s press release exchange specifically involves the 1962 Vatican document Crimen sollicitationis, which, unfortunately, has been a subject of controversy and misunderstanding over the last few years.
The following PDF article, “Smearing the Pope,” written by canon lawyer Dr. Edward Peters, covers the still-timely debate regarding said Vatican document. It is reprinted (with permission) from the December 2006 issue of CATHOLIC WORLD REPORT. Click on the photo below:
