Three Cheers for Taylor Marshall!

Abu Daoud's brain manages to dredge up on a regular basis obscure theological and historical questions. Special thanks to the irrepressible Taylor Marshall (former Anglican, now with Rome, am I the only one not doing this?!) over at Canterbury Tales.

My question: can there be lay cardinals or cardinal deacons in the Catholic Church?

His answer is HERE.

Thanks Taylor. Let me know if you have questions on Islam or Arabic :-)

Without reading his answer, my response would be:

Of course!

Why not? There is no inherent theological problem since the Cardinalature is a human invention.

There is no canonical problem because whatever canon law says, the Supreme Legislator--Peter--can do as he wishes...

Now let's see what Taylor says.
