1968: The Greatest Revolution in the American Church?
Description: In 1968 a Theology professor at Catholic University authored a “Statement of Dissent” claiming he was not bound to follow Church teaching on contraception. The statement was signed by more than 500 theologians and sparked a debate in the post-Vatican II church over the meaning of academic freedom at a Catholic university. Fr. Peter Mitchell joins us with never-before-seen material from the personal papers of key figures in the story.
