The disciplinary and theological revolutions of the Second Vatican Council have endowed many Catholics with a sense that the Church has finally definitively moved into modernity. The sense of security is perhaps a false one, as some of the more unsavory features of the Church’s past, though in Vatican II documents encouraged to modernize, remain, albeit under different titles. One of the most disturbing of these is the inquisition congregation, renamed after the close of the Council the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Employing a variety of self-drafted arguments, this Congregation is doing work that perhaps ought to be reserved to the papal office. This has led to the subjugation of Catholic theologians worldwide and should be the subject of scrutiny for all concerned Christians in the modern ethical era.
