“By choosing not to say anything and by burying the report [on the question of condom use to prevent disease] the [Catholic] Church remains vulnerable to the accusation that its teaching on this point is inhumane and irrational. But even worse is the deliberate suppression of theological truth for fear of being misunderstood. It is mundane. It is cowardly. It is not worthy of a teaching authority which proclaims that the truth sets us free.”

Austen Ivereigh
