‘Catholic sexual revolution’ not proper response, Fr. Granados replies to Christopher West

The debate over whether or not Christopher West accurately conveys John Paul II’s Theology of the Body witnessed another addition on Friday as Fr. Jose Granados cautioned that modern society’s sexual issues cannot be solved with a ‘Catholic sexual revolution.’ Submissions from numerous Catholic theologians, including Drs. David Schindler, Janet Smith and Michael Waldstein have come out in reaction to criticism of the popular work conducted by West. Dr. David Schindler, dean of the John Paul II Institute in Washington D.C., criticized West’s teaching for significantly misrepresenting Pope John Paul II’s thought, describing his approach as “too much about sex and too romantic” and calling on him to subject his theology to “renewed reflection.”
