Bishop Sanborn responds to the "rupture theology" article
I think we have established that man has a moral duty to obey conscience under pain of sin -- even when honestly erroneous.  Now the moral law does not issue duties without confering the corresponding right to fulfill our duty.  In other words, man has the moral right to fulfill his moral duties.  Does this conflict with the teaching of Pius XII that "error has no right to exist"?  Not at all as stated above:

Quote:The right is NOT founded on error as error, per se, has no right to exist.  The right is founded on the "superior good" of obeying the moral law and the dictates of conscience -- in spite of the error.  The mere fact of the error does not cancel the right associated with the superior good.
