San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone’s “morality” clauses instructing staff at archdiocese high schools in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties to denounce artificial reproduction and conception, homosexuality and everything short of “winking,” reeks of Inquisition intolerance.
To their credit, parents, students, elected officials and 80% of school employees have rejected this draconian addition to the employee handbook.
It is no wonder that church attendance continues to decline in light of such an assault on human intelligence, compassion and enlightenment. There is no “free will” when dogmatism usurps and extinguishes our capacity for rational thought.
