THE NEW Roman Catholic catechism not only has nothing for women but nothing for men or the future.

This 700-page guide to sin (almost twice the length of the New Testament) cannot even explain with precision what that first sin was which supposedly caused all the trouble in the first place]

To demonstrate just how little moral authority religion and the Roman Catholic Church commands, one only has to note that Ms Roberts's comments sit on a page above another article which asks the question, 'Who cares about genocide?'.

This new catechism offers no primary moral understanding or insights at all, and most Catholics will ignore most of what it says.
