Creighton Profs All Wrong on Sexuality Issues

Gee whillikers. Imagine this!

In their 2008 book, "The Sexual Person," theologians Todd A. Salzman and Michael G. Lawler "reach a whole range of conclusions that are contrary to Catholic teaching," the U.S. bishops' Committee on Doctrine said in a 24-page critique.

The document, dated Sept. 15 and made public Sept. 22, said the theologians' methodology "marks a radical departure from Catholic theological tradition" and their conclusions "cannot provide a true norm for moral action and in fact are harmful to one's moral and spiritual life."

But these authors are not from just any old place. Nosirree!

Salzman chairs the theology department at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., and Lawler, who retired in 2005, is a professor emeritus there.

Jebby school. Figures.

Just curious--is that book a required purchase for Creighton U. theo students?
