Deacons and perfect continence
#62
Yes, we covered the case that you are making a political / doctrinal stand over a point of law.  I'm not interested in that, and I think it's foolhardy for reasons I could give if you're interested, but I suspect you're not.  I'll offer this, though:  doctrine isn't going to be fixed via Canon Law, Canon Law will only be fixed by fixing the doctrine - i.e., the nonsense that came out of the Council.

your responses really, truly do confuse me.  The idea of incontinent clergy is part of "the nonsense that came out of the Council".  

If you want to argue how the 1983 Code is untraditional and dubious in certain areas, you won't get an argument from me, but that won't change until the other stuff is changed.

Actually, I'm only arguing that the common interpretation of the Code is untraditional.  As I have repeatedly posted, the code itself is remarkably unmolested.  If the USCCB, for example, actually followed what is in the code according to tradition, they're extract a promise of perpetual continence from married deacons at their ordination.  Nothing at al untraditional about that.

As I suggested, I believe at most it will be 30 seconds for the Pope to make an adjustment to Canon Law if it even gets that far.
 
that ship has sailed.  JPII had the new code for a lot longer than 30 seconds and revoked that proposed chnage with his own hand.  That stands alone in this debate untouched.

This issue is a non-starter as far as promoting tradition.

That appears to be a matter of opinion, but it's an opinion I'm not going to be allowed to have here.

My position in the discussion is that the Canon Law is the Canon Law.

My position exactly.  I'm just interpeting it according to traditional principles instead of novel ones.  We're both adding words, I'm just adding old fashioned ones.

 Whether it is traditional or tone or not, and often it is not, that doesn't change the fact that if a deacon is brought before a tribunal charged with what you claim, they will judge the allegations as the law is written; he will not appear before the CDF / Holy Office.

Misses the point.  He was improperly ordained.  That's not his fault.  He's living according to the rule imposed on him by his ordinary.  This rule is contrary to law and tradition.  The ordinary got it from the national bishop's council.  I wouldn not presume to place blame in that mess.
