Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

All Hail Lord Monaghan, Arbiter of Catholicism

Apparently, I wasn't able to express yesterday what I meant. Monaghan's argument to the court that his decisions are protected as religious ministerial things is really what Mongahan believes. (but as any court knows, his unreasonable personal beliefs do not make reality).

How dare a mere court try probe his great, unique, and final word on Catholic thinking? How dare they try to probe his wisdom of determining who is a sheep and who is a goat? No, it is not for mere people to determine who will sit at Lord Monaghan's left or at his right hands.

Not even the pope or any other Catholic school in the United States can match Lord Monaghan's understanding of the Catholic faith. After all, hasn't He said that His is the only Way? the only Catholic school?

Like I said yesterday, to take resort where he has, Lord Monaghan has opened up the world of questions as to what exactly his view of the Church really is -- it's his!
