More Plain Sense
Dr. Michael Liccione has posted further thoughts on the dispute over the "plain meaning of scripture" at Sacrementum Vitae. So far I've only had time to read through it quickly, but I expect that I will have more to say about it later because it raises the very interesting question of the relationship between the sense of scripture and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, a relation that all sides, apparently, agree to be central to the question. The role of private judgment in this is denied by some, asserted by others, and regarded as trivial by yet others. So perhaps the jury is still deliberating on this one.
