Censorship at Cafod
I share Fr Martin Boland’s sense of disquiet (Letters, 30 September) at the potential impact of self-appointed guardians of orthodoxy who would make social media a virtual Coliseum for their bloodsports.
Norman Tanner SJ (Letters, 2 September) offers some “refinements” on the debate about his colleague Jacques Dupuis’s experience with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF). He concludes that the “CDF may not have been courteous or fair in all its procedures, but we should give it credit for having at heart the good of souls”.
Many could muster that much goodwill. But when we hear the hurt caused to Jacques Dupuis in his own words (“Theologian on the ropes”, 12 August) this is far from sufficient.
