Is being a theology professor at a Catholic college and getting money for teaching courses the sin of simony (CCC 2121 “Simony is defined as the buying or selling of spiritual things”)? The money the students pay to take my course would not be an optional donation. They will be forced to pay for the credit hours to learn and get credit for learning.
I hope it’s not simony but I need reasons for believing it isn’t for my conscience. Or else I might have to pick a new major soon. Thanks.
