Disaffected Catholics and 'bad Catholics'

Thanks to the Wild Reed Blog for this interesting post about Disaffected Catholics and 'bad Catholics' written by Richard McBrien recently and appeared in the National Catholic Reporter. I have particluar sympathies with the following

"Some bishops convey the impression that the church's official teachings on contraception, divorce-and-remarriage, homosexuality, the ordination of women, and obligatory celibacy for priests are so clear and compelling that only a person of bad will could possibly disagree with them.

And yet there are many committed, well-educated, still-practicing Catholics, including many priests and religious women, who do disagree with these teachings, in whole or in part."
