A Good One-Sentence Kicker

Chris commented on my Thursday post. The comment’s good, but the kicker’s great: “Is it logical to say that because heretics questioned a doctrine, the doctrine itself was therefore ill-defined?”

That sentence, had I thought of it earlier, would have been great. It explains the reason that the Catholic Church doesn’t require “universal and continuous belief” to mean “without any exception, ever, anywhere.”

If you’re wonder, Christ also has a great post thanking Vatican II for the Pope’s recent outreach to Anglicans. His argument is that these are the proper (and intended) fruits of the Second Vatican Council, and I heartily agree.
