Where Is Your Salvation Found?
Per Vatican II, in my well formed conscience

I have little doubt that according to California Assembly speaker Fabian Nunez, it's found within himself. And why not? He was raised on that "according to my well formed conscience" drivel his whole life.

Yep... we've all heard that worn-out mantra for decades now. "According to my well formed conscience." Code for "I'll do anything I want because Vatican II says I can".

Now as we all know, the actual documents of V2 never came out and said exactly that... but they were vague enough that they could mean anything you wanted them to mean. Specifically, within the non-binding/non-dogmatic Declaration of Religious Liberty and The Pastoral Constitution on The Church in the Modern World. Like most of Vatican II, there are loop holes big enough to drive a Mac truck through.

As expected, Assembly speaker Fabian Nunez, who describes himself as a Catholic, yesterday announced he would support and co-sign AB-374, the latest legislative effort to legalize assisted suicide in California.

“Nunez, who is Catholic, said he is ‘ready to buck my church,’ and added that the toughest conversation that he'll have to have is with his ‘Catholic mother who wanted me to become a priest,’” the [San Francisco] Chronicle reported.

No, numb-nuts... the toughest conversation you're going to have is when you stand in judgment in front of God Almighty and you try to tap-dance your way out of eternal damnation... that is if you don't change your ways, and damn double-quick,

Fabian Nunez (and Nancy Pelosi, Rudy Giuliani, Joe Biden, John Kerry, etc.) are perfect examples of the New & Improved, Vatican II Approved Catholic Church. They are what the likes of Weakland, Mahony, Bernadine, etc, ad nauseum, have been striving for since the mid-1960's;

~ You decide what's right and wrong, not God's Church.
~ Your new Sacred Scripture is a political party's platform, not The Holy Bible.
~ Your new Sacred Tradition is all that's been done in "the spirit of Vatican II", not the past 2,000 years of Catholicism.
~ Truth doesn't come from above, it comes from within.
~ Despite the initial sucking of teeth by certain Church leaders, no matter how extreme the unrepentant sin you commit, you'll always be welcome "at The Lord's table" for Holy Communion... and you get to decide what exactly "Holy Communion" is.

Vir,
As always, you hit the nail on the head!!!

The operational words in their lexicon is "well-formed conscience," something few or none of them have ever thought to seek a definition.

As God has said, "My people perish for want of knowledge." Hos. 4:6

You know, Vir, I think you should take up writing homilies for many of the NO priests in my country and yours! Or at least, your blog should be mandatory reading for these priests! Hmmm...maybe I should send this link to my priest...

Pure Modernism.

And one other thought on this subject:

"Personal conscience and reason should not be set in opposition to the moral law or Magisterium of the Church."
-Catechism of the Catholic Church #2039
