The Committee on Doctrine of United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued a 24-page critique of The Sexual Person: Toward a Renewed Catholic Anthropology, a 2008 work by Creighton University theologians Michael G. Lawler and Todd A. Salzman. Lawler is a professor emeritus, while Salzman is the current chair of the theology department at the Nebraska Jesuit university.

The committee, chaired by Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington, found that the book contains “erroneous conclusions” on the morality of homosexual acts, premarital sex, contraception, and artificial insemination. The committee issued its critique “because of the pastoral danger that readers of the book could be confused or misled, especially since the book proposes ways of living a Christian life that do not accord with the teaching of the Church and the Christian tradition.”
