An interesting new interpretation of the Vatican's position on adultery and bigamy
Did I hear this correctly?
Last night, I was listening to the radio, or rather, I was falling asleep with the radio on. It was Stephen Nolan's phone-in show on BBC Radio 5, and they were discussing some bloke who has fathered fifteen children by two different women. One woman is his wife, the other is his mistress. Both women and all the children are living in his home. He doesn't work, but stays at home to look after the children. His income comes from state benefits.
Seemingly, many of the children were unplanned. When asked why he didn't use contraception, he replied, "I'm a good Catholic."
Reconciling the gentleman's claim with the aforementioned facts about his lifestyle is left as an exercise for the reader.
