Sorry…. I thought my last post was clear….
In the Catechism class that I teach, I often use “confrontational” questions like this one to spur a deeper discussion of our faith.
The dissent question, to me, was an easy one to answer….. the comments about conscience even easier…..
I was wrong.
The fact that no one here was even close to the answer I was looking for (it’s in the Catechism) shows me now that the question is too difficult for my class.
Hope that clears things up…. thanks for your help, by the way.
