Well, I'll be!

Having lost my patience a bit with Mr. Charles Murtaugh's argument for therapeutic cloning earlier today, I was surprised and overjoyed to find that he has been reading the german Thomistic philosopher Josef Pieper's The Concept of Sin, and that he (Charles) is friends with the translator of Pieper's work and theologian, Edward T. Oakes, S.J. of Regis University in Denver.

While I must still maintain my criticism of his views on therapeutic cloning, I'm happy to see that Mr. Murtaugh appreciates the thought of one of the twentieth century's greater (but relatively unknown) thinkers.
