San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy told 55 theology graduates of Santa Clara University, California, on May 20 that Francis introduced "a vibrantly transformed branch of Catholic theology", writes NCROnline.org.
McElroy claimed that Francis’ theology “rejects a notion of law which can be blind to the uniqueness of concrete human situations”.
According to McElroy Francis' moral theology “does not first demand a change of life, but begins with an embrace of divine love, proceeds to the action of healing and only then requires a conversion of action in responsible conscience.”
However, McElroy needs to answer whether this theory applies to all sinners including murderers, terrorists, Nazis, racketeers or child abusers.
McElroy belongs to the most radical wing of the U.S. Bishops' Conference.
