Further to my discussions of Canon 277

A misinterpretation of a mistranslation of Vatican II’s Presbyterorum ordinis 16 lends itself to use against the clerical obligation of perfect and perpetual continence that I have argued is contained in Canon 277. I address the matter in Edward Peters, “A note on some misapplications of Presbyterorum ordinis 16”, Fellowship of Catholic Scholars Quarterly 34/2 (Summer 2011) 31-33, available in PDF here. For access to all of my published materials on this question, and for links to several other authors, see this page.
