2.0 out of 5 stars Limitations and weak arguments, 3 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: What Went Wrong with Vatican II?: The Catholic Crisis Explained (Paperback)
I like very much McInerny's thomistic writings, but was disappointed by this book. McInerny explains the post-Vatican II Catholic by a rejection of the encyclical on contraception. But there seem to be many more factors (rejection of orthodoxy & apologetics by much of the clergy, which became liberal instead.) Besides he does not answer the problem about the encyclical in question. If he wants to defend it, then he should try to show that the teachings on contraception were right, it does not seem possible to defend this, so he simply appeals to the authority of papal infallibility (a doctrine launched last century by a pope who had no vision and very bad diplomatic relations with Italy, and sought to reinforce his power by declaring himself infallible.) I think that if the Catholic problem is to be solved, it will be by concentrating on apologetics and good philosophy (like McInerny does in other books), but also on rejecting the absurd dogma that were made at the end of last century (papal infallibility, anti-Biblical teachings about Mary, etc.)
