Baylor professor rebukes campus newspaper for mocking Church on indulgences
March 04, 2009
A Baylor University philosophy professor has scolded the editors of the school’s newspaper, The Lariat, for an editorial ridiculing Catholic teaching on indulgences. The Lariat editorial– based on the inaccurate impression that the Church had recently revived a teaching that had previously been defunct, show poor timing, poor taste, questionable source, bad history, and bad theological reasoning, argued Francis Beckwith. Beckwith, a former president of the Evangelical Theological Society, announced last year that he was returning to his boyhood Catholic faith.
