Re: THe Natural Law is the Foundation
Question from Anonymous on 5/18/2019:

Hello Judy:

Although the Natural Law is the beginning of Truth, or one could say anything outside of the Natural Law, at the least is disordered thinking. AND the bedrock of any just society is the Natural Law.

Now we know how the loons, ignorant, and haters of the pro-life philosophy manipulate, my question has to do with the field of psychology. In that, most if not almost all psychologists today have no regard for the Natural Law let alone what the Church teaches(basic Catholicism at that). they think of in terms that everything is subjective and relative...so not judge...their is no such thing as sin, etc. Many will even say that we are not concerned about religion (although we are by nature a religious and spiritual being...CCC.)...we are only concerned about behavior(s). My question then becomes how do you distinguish between right and wrong moral behaviors...if all is subjective?

AND if one does not have a foundation for what is right and wrong (the Natural Law, the Ten Commandments) one becomes nothing less than opinionated and a blind guide...an anti-Christ at the worse?

My point is, modern psychology is a huge part of the problem that needs to be challenged. If one is seeing a therapist that is pro-homosexual sexual relationships; for abortion; for choice of euthanasia; for legalization of all illicit drugs...well what you have here is basically consultation with a devil like and hell bent person.

Your insights are excellent and I thank you for them, but in order to complete the circle you are drawing with your language we must say that the Catholic priest who embraces the natural law and offers his loving advice to those in need of guidance is the antithesis of the secular humanistic worldly therapists you mention.

Pray for our priests.
