Wow. Here’s an apostolate in decline. The archdiocesan-sponsored Theology on Tap program in Clifton recently hosted Ken Overberg, S.J., to address Pope Francis and “conscience.” For the uninitiated, Overberg is a heretic (a word I don’t use lightly) who routinely denies core Christological doctrines like the Atonement from the lectern at Xavier University’s Bellarmine Chapel. Regarding the topic of the ToT session, conscience, Overberg once asked in the pages of the Catholic Telegraph of Cincinnati “whether it is right to require celibacy of all homo5exuals” and suggested that such relationships ought to “be considered love-giving and life giving.”

Overberg was most likely asked to speak because he’s written an execrable book on conscience, which I briefly reviewed on Amazon..
