As a Christmas treat, I will “go off topic” and refer to a little Catholic corporate governance in matters ecclesiatic. The Magisterium of the Catholic Church is colloquially referred to as that which represents the offical teaching and authority of the church. Steve Bainbridge links to catholic texts on this issue as a follow-up to a recent front page article in The Wall Street Journal about a parish is St. Louis, MO, that is attempting to assert itself in opposition to the local archbishop, and why this is an example of one of the things that makes the Catholic Church different than other denominations.
