Perhaps so, I wasn't going back to the OP, but replying to the joke about Spong... I do think has been really good, considering where he's at.

I’ve lost track of what the discussion is even about at this point. Pius IX’s actions were valid, so it seems to be about whether to say so publicly.

What are the things “justified” by canon law you find problematic? Can you name them, please, rather than vaguely impugning the Church’s legal system?

I haven’t heard a concrete, feasible alternative in the Mortara Case for executing the duty to provide a Catholic education.

Really? I am sympathetic to Pius. But Mortara lived in a community of a paltry 200 Jews in a Catholic University City, in the Papal States. Was there really no alternative? Did Pius even consider an alternative? These are Legitimate questions I’d like to see someone answer.

I mean, I’m open to hearing them, but what? The parents were opposed to any Catholic education, no?
