It's the only mind worth having …

… Can you be a Catholic and have a questioning mind? | Religion and Other Curiosities. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… Farrell’s question is misleading: The issue is not what one thinks in private, but what one says publicly that is contrary to the magisterium. Roman canon law contains a very important proposition: De occultis non iudicat Ecclesia—“The Church does not judge secret matters”—such as the private ruminations of a questioning mind.

Exactly. My mind harbors all kinds of questions.
