The Church & Morality

After examining Christ as the source of our moral authority, we are now looking at the role of the Church in relaying that moral discipline to each generation.

As a case study, please examine this article on St. Louis University basketball coach Rick Majerus. Majerus recently spoke at a campaign event for presidential candidate and democratic senator Hillary Clinton - particularly Majerus spoke in favor of legalized abortion.

As a coach at a Catholic university, Majerus' comments drew the attention of St. Louis archbishop, Raymond Burke, who has criticized the coach and called for him to recant.

This provides us an excellent example of the Church's role in articulating and encouraging the moral teachings of Jesus Christ, even when that means standing in conflict with American society.

Until next time,
Ad Jesum per Mariam,
Mr. B.
