|Heresiarch Scicluna of Malta|
The Maltese bishops have announced that one can follow one's conscience regarding the committing of adultery. These men obviously no longer believe that this particular act, is always, everywhere, and without exception a very grave mortal sin. Vox Cantoris carries a full report.
I have a question for these Maltese malefactors: if one can follow one's conscience regarding the intrinsically evil act of adultery, what about murder (which includes abortion and euthanasia), rape, theft, unnatural sexual acts (specifically oral and anal sodomy between men and women) and homosexual acts?
To close in the words of St Francis de Sales from an Introduction to the Devout Life:
"Public, notorious sinners may be spoken of freely, provided always even then that a spirit of charity and compassion prevail, and that you do not speak of them with arrogance or presumption, or as though you took pleasure in the fall of others".
"But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart". Matthew 5:28
