[quote:khr3je9t]Sometimes I ask “controversial” questions because I like getting other Catholics to think for a change.
The Apologetics 101 arrogance of “Rome has spoken, case closed!”… (however correct) is quite ineffective for evangelization…. it actually turns a lot of people AWAY from the Catholic faith.[/quote:khr3je9t]
This is where I am a bit confused. I do agree we should raise controverial questions for the sake of having people think and grow. But I am still a bit confused why you or anybody would challenge the an infallible Church teaching. Unless this is not what you are saying. This is how I understood it. Imagine the following scenerio:
Rome says: “We proclaim that one does not have to get circumcised to become a Christian”
Objector: “Well I disagree, because…….”
Is this a fair scenerio of what you were trying to say about dissenting?
