New Haven -
The Vatican HAS corrected a theologian, who claimed that homosexuality, divorce, and masturbation, are morally acceptable.
She says it's about acceptance and breaking taboos.
The book is called "Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics," by Sister Margaret A. Farley.
She said Monday her 2006 book was intended as a proposal that might aid, not hurt, the Roman Catholic church.
The Vatican issued an official "Notification" Monday by its Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
In her book, Sr. Farley claims that homosexual relationships and activities "can be justified according to the same sexual ethic as heterosexual relationships and activities.
On masturbation, Sr. Farley had written that it "usually does not raise any moral questions at all," and maintains that it is not a moral issue, and can actually benefit relationships. Vatican, anything outside of marriage is wrong.
On divorce - Sr. Farley also maintains that divorce is sometimes acceptable, stating that marriages may be "subject to release" especially in situations "in which too much has changed" in the relationship.
The Vatican has declared that her book may not be used in Catholic teaching, counseling, or "ecumenical and interreligious dialogue."
She said her book "was designed to help people, especially Christians but also others, to think through their questions about human sexuality.
