CDF head: We’re not the Inquisition

Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, says that while his office no longer operates an Inquisition or publishes an Index of forbidden books, the CDF’s mission is to “promote and protect the doctrine of the faith. It is a task that will always be necessary for the Church, which has the duty to transmit the teaching of the Apostles to the next generation.”
