Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Patricia Miller (Religion Dispatches, Good Catholics)

On The Posner Show, Sarah speaks with Patti about the Extraordinary General Synod taking place this week in Rome. Patti argues that conservative fears that the synod will produce radical changes are misplaced. She traces the church’s position on contraception to decisions made during the last synod in 1980. Nonetheless, she says, a midterm report from this synod contained some surprising revelations, notably signals that the church may stop referring to homosexuality as “intrinsically disordered” and to unmarried couples as “living in sin.” What did a German bishop really say about African bishops and homosexuality? What does Patricia’s book have to say about a role for pro-choice Catholics? Finally: How Francis’s synod represents very “modest proposals.”
