Boston Globe, Eileen McNamara:

The tension is not new. Doctrinaire Catholics have long denounced more liberal practitioners of the faith as "cafeteria Catholics," who pick and choose what to believe. Liberal Catholics have long disparaged those who accept without question that the church's man-made rules are divinely ordained.

Well, Isn't this special. Evidently, Eileen views orthodox Catholics as dummies who are "doctrineaire," "blind followers" and cannot distinguish the Church's man-made rules from those divinely ordained. Typical liberal. Call those you can't comprehend stupid.

I'd like to meet some of these unquestioning automatons. I guess Eileen can't concieve of people being orthodox Catholics because they questioned and found the answers beautiful and truthful, satisfying to the soul.

Much of the Western intellectual tradition comes from the Church which is not only not intimidated by questions but welcomes them and is well able to give answers.

LONDON, Jan 6, 03 ( - A British former Catholic
scientist, educated at England's leading Jesuit school, has
been named as the founder of the company which claims to
have produced the first human clone.

The Sunday Times revealed that Dr. Marcus Wenner, 42, a
senior member of the Raelian cult, was one of three
scientists who started Clonaid in 1997 which has announced
the birth of two babies it claims are cloned.

Wenner founded the British Raelian movement in the late
1970s shortly after finishing his education at Stonyhurst,
a top Catholic boarding school run by Jesuits in Lancashire.

He rejected Catholicism, saying the Raelian explanation for
life on Earth-- that aliens put us here-- was "more logical."
