Catholic News Agency reports here about a recently published book linking the widespread use of contraception among Catholics to the the silence of priests presenting Church teachings on the subject. I read this headline Vatican analyst: Catholic use of contraception linked to silence of clergyand said, "Hey, no kidding". Than I thought, what other earth-shattering headlines could I come up with:Loss of the Sense of Sin among Catholics linked to Silence of Clergy. How about this one: Empty Confessionals linked to Silence of Clergy. Or this: Support for Same-Sex Marriage among Catholics linked to Silence of Clergy. This: Ignorance of Catholic Doctrine among Catholics linked to Silence of Clergy. Somebody stop me anytime.
