DESCRIPTION:

A dramatic polarization in Christian Theology has been noticeable for some time. 

The opposite positions concern topics such as celibacy, women priesthood, admission of civilly remarried divorcees to the sacraments, homosexual marriage, the choice between a hierarchical or participatively organized community.

Yet whoever thinks that this is only about one or the other change in sexual morals or in the selfunderstanding of the Church, is mistaken about how serious the situation really is.

For this is not about small adjustments or liberalization – the key question is on whether the truth frees us, or freedom makes us true.
