    “For Actonites, freedom is an end in itself.” Really? Have they not read the eloquent and developed denunciation of this in Veritatis Splendor??

      If they’ve read it, I am sure they have found a way around it. Of course, they will likely defend themselves by saying that they personally know what freedom is for, but no one has the authority to tell anyone else what it is for. In that respect they are one with Justice Anthony Kennedy’s dictum that it’s up to each and every individual to determine what the sweet mystery of life is.

    Gabriel, I’ve been a more-or-less faithful (albeit silent) reader of your blogs for the last couple years or so. I thought I’d out myself here to cheer you on in this latest endeavor and try to participate in the discussion. I hope things are well for you and your family back in the fatherland.
