Here’s a question, can a Catholic tolerate other people using contraception?
I think so, if the principle of double effect is used:
(1) there might be a proportionate reason (perhaps trying to move effectually against the use of contraceptives might make most people even more anti-religious). (2) the act itself doesn’t seem to be intrinsically immoral since toleration of any wrong is not intrinsically wrong. (3) the good to be gained is not directly derived from the evil; contraceptives don’t directly aid religion in its PR battles.
Any errors here?
