New Catholic Moral Theology Website

Charles Camosy, assistant professor of Christian ethics at Fordham University, writes us this morning with news of an impressive new website called "Catholic Moral Theology." Camosy explains: "This website will have 15 of the best young Roman Catholic moral theologians in North America offering their insights.  But the great thing is that they won't be only on the news, but also on the Sunday readings and in a specifically academic venue as well."  The website's mission statement: 

We are a group of North American Catholic moral theologians who come together in friendship to engage each other in theological discussion, to aid one another in our common search for wisdom, and to help one another live lives of discipleship, all in service to the reign of God.  We understand our role as scholars and teachers to be a vocation rooted in the Church and so we seek to place the fruits of our training at the service of the Church,  as well as the academy and the world.  We recognize that we as a group will have disagreements, but want to avoid the standard “liberal /conservative” divide that often characterizes contemporary conversation, as well as the bitterly divisive tone of so much ethical discussion (particularly on the internet). We therefore endeavor to converse with each other and others in a spirit of respect, charity, and humility.

I found some of the topics very interesting.  But so far only one comment in the 12 days it has been posting.  Maybe a topic or two should be brought up here and some here will comment.  I plan to comment on one of the topics so maybe we can spread the word and more will go there over time.
