Dan Maguire Slapdown from USCC(!!)


Reported by Diogenes, here's the quote from USCC on Dan-o Maguire's mass-distributed heresies:

On June 19, 2006, Professor Daniel Maguire of Marquette University sent two pamphlets to all of the Catholic Bishops in the United States, one entitled The Moderate Roman Catholic Position on Contraception and Abortion and the other A Catholic Defense of Same-Sex Marriage. These pamphlets do not present Catholic teaching. His views about contraception, abortion, same sex "marriage", as well as the very nature of Church teaching and its authoritative character, cross the legitimate lines of theological reflection and simply enter into the area of false teaching. Such mistaken views should not be confused with the faith and moral teaching of the Catholic Church. Since it is apparent that considerable efforts have been made to give these views the widest possible distribution as if they were a valid alternative to the teaching of the Catholic Church, the Committee on Doctrine of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops considers it important to offer a public correction of the erroneous views proposed in these pamphlets. At the same time, the Committee on Doctrine calls attention to the Catechism of the Catholic Church where correct and authentic teaching can be found.

"Dr." Death Dan" also sent those pamphlets to members of Congress. We have a suspicion as to the funding for this mass-print/mail job, of course. No evidence, just suspicion.

This is not an accident. Since Abp. Dolan has slammed DeathDan on a few occasions (to no apparent avail,) the Archbishop obviously has raised the stakes a bit.

Even Marquette U. agreed with the USCC statement, which tells you something.

Dan, it's Lent. Repent and return.
