Denying a legacy
Share with others:
The letter by W. John Houk ("On Being Catholic." Aug. 6) is a denial of the honorable inheritance that Catholics have in Scripture, tradition and the teaching authority of the church. In fact, Mr. Houk misguidedly sets himself up as a type of authority by relying on his "new information and experiences" to break what he considers the "unjust rules" of the church.
His prescription is not in any sense a new way of "being church" but would deny to a culture the fullness of the faith entrusted to us.
