Quote: Pope Alexander IV (1254-1261) in “Sextus Decretalium”, Lib. V, c. ii:

We furthermore forbid any lay person to engage in dispute, either private or public, concerning the Catholic Faith. Whosoever shall act contrary to this decree, let him be bound in the fetters of excommunication.

Does this carry any weight today? What about Catholic Internet forums? We're doomed!  :o

I'll ask my priest about this. I had no idea.

For the past 40/50 years Catholics have been all too easily plucked them from the arms of the Church, like candy from a baby. I think this is due to post VII poor catechesis and a post conciliar Church that has attempted to befriend Protestantism.

While I have to agree that many Protestants are good at mental gymnastics, I disagree that they can run rings around Catholics who know their faith. I find their arguments are very stupid. And they're in denial. They've got to be. With an online Catechism and a Douay-Rheims bible online,  I feel I can debate fine.

Furthermore, if it weren't for lay Catholic apologists, I might not have returned to the Catholic Faith. So, I thank God for them.
Oh my Jesus, I surrender myself to you. Take care of everything.--Fr Dolindo Ruotolo
