August 27, 2018
Last month, Pope Francis made a change to the Catechism of the Catholic Church in which he decided that the Death Penalty was intrinsically evil.  Is the Death penalty now evil?  Does the Pope have the power to make such changes?  Let us distinguish between different types of laws: the natural law, the divine law and human law.
