An artificial method for the regulation of births could be recognized as an act of "responsibility” when natural methods are impossible or unfeasible, said Milan moral theologian, Father Maurizio Chiodi, a member of the Pontifical Academy for Life.
Chiodi made his remarks during a talk on December 14 at the Gregorian University in Rome, writes Lifesitenews (January 8).
He claimed that most "believing married couples" use contraceptives and "many pastors” prefer not to mention Catholic morals.
According to Catholic teaching contraception is an intrinsic evil act and can never be used without commiting a grave sin and therefore risking eternal damnation.

Chiodi has the same wrong conclusion as the Lambeth-conference of 1929/30 when the Anglican community conceded contraception as "Planned Parenthood" (irony of history). This décision lead to the collapse of anglican moral theology
I wonder if these poor misguided fools feel the same way about "sins against the environment", depriving workers of their wages, immigration control or free-market economics. Why are they only interested in finding "inculpability" loopholes for sexual sins?
