As is commonly known by Catholics who are serious about the Faith, a neomodernist “rival magisterium” established itself in the Church shortly after the closing of the Second Vatican Council. It appealed to a “spirit of Vatican II” in support of its ideas, often in direct contradiction to the official teaching of the Catholic Church as set down in the conciliar documents, Sacred Scripture, and Sacred Tradition.
The story of how this so-called “faithful dissent” began to
wreak havoc among the faithful in the United States started with the historical
setting in which Paul VI issued his encyclical Humanae Vitae and the reception it received among theologians
comprising this “rival magisterium.” Here is an enlightening account of how this phenomenon remains actives at a prominent Jesuit university.
