Mark Shea covers it.
I got the same Press Release that he and every other Catholic blogger must have received:
Blah, blah, blah, whatever. I haven't seen a copy of YouCat, but surely it was approved after extensive review by the appropriate ecclesial authorities - in other words, as far as I know, YouCat carries an imprimatur and nihil obstat. As Mark points out:INTERNATIONAL COALITION CALLS FOR YOUCAT RECALL:Youth Catechism’s Doctrinal Errors Prompt Global Petition to Pope Benedict XVI
So some press release shows up in my box announcing that "a formal petition for the recall of YOUCAT has been launched by a group of more than 25 theologians, clergy, and Catholics involved in lay apostolates." I click the link (no, I'm not providing it), but have trouble locating who these people are. That smells. Strike one.After strike two and three he concludes - as I do:
More and more, there seem to be "lay apostolates" whose mission seems to be to "save" the Church from the Magisterium and replace their guidance with the dogmatisms of sectarians. On the whole, if it's choice between the teachers ordained by Christ and Some Guy with a Website, I think I will stick with the bishops and the Pope. - YouCat Recall Looks Pretty DodgyThen there is The Black SheepDog's...
Following his truth I guess.
