Why you can be Catholic and still support gay marriage

/ 23 September 2010

Ok, I’ve written about this before, but here’s an opportunity to come and hear from one of our most senior Catholic moral theologians. Daniel Maguire is giving a lecture on October 21 at the House of the Beloved Disciple, a church in Minneapolis. The lecture will be from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm that day, and is free and open to the public (although a free will offering will be invited). From their flyer:

Daniel C. Maguire, has a doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, one of the world’s major Catholic universities. The author of eleven books and the editor of three anthologies, Maguire specializes in religious ethics focusing upon issues of social justice and medical and ecological ethics. He is also the author of some 200 articles in professional journals and magazines, including Theological Studies, Cross Currents, Atlantic, The New York Times, Crisis: Journal of the NAACP, and Ms. Magazine. In 1982 he was listed by Ms. Magazine as one of the “40 male heroes of the past decade, men who took chances and made a difference.” His published books include: Moral Absolutes and the Magisterium (1970), The Moral Choice (1975), The Moral Revolution (1986), On Moral Grounds: The Art/Science of Ethics (1991), The Moral Core of Judaism and Christianity (1993), Sacred Energies (2000), What Men Owe Women (2000), Sacred Choices (2001), Sacred Rights (2003), and Whose Church?
