It competes with their principles...

Their principles...

principles...

A person, nor an institution, can claim the moral high ground and then compromise their principles.

... and supposedly, the Catholic church has the mandate from THE HIGHEST AUTHORITY... to follow these principles to the letter!

I feel so bad for those stories of devout christians singing as they were led by the romans into the lions mouth. How would they feel today, if they could see their church making compromises to avoid facing a litigious debate?
