This letter addresses columnist Gerald Largen’s unwelcomed attack on the authority of the Catholic Church to establish behavioral expectations for its members. His question “How far should we defer to priests’ decisions?” is inappropriate on several levels.
First, members of the Roman Catholic Church should, in my opinion, at least attempt to follow the tenets of their professed faith, and should be free to do so, unencumbered by laws enacted to force the church or its members to support practices that violate these tenets.
