The Frontiers of Catholicism
The Politics of Ideology in A Liberal WorldeBook - 1992
Why does the Catholic Church take a politically conservative stance on some issues, such as abortion and birth control, while on others, such as social programmes and nuclear policy, it resembles the Left? Why do some Catholic groups reject the legitimacy of Church hierarchy and yet choose to remain within it? To explain these apparent contradictions, Gene Burns examines the origins of contemporary diversity and conflict in the Catholic Church, also illuminating the processes of ideological change.
