Where non catholics were in the minority it also achieved its secondary objective of reducing that minority further.
Nobody was forced to remain a catholic or to obey the requirements of the ne temere decree.
Poster T.Mor unjustified criticism fails to mention that.
Additionally the catholic church used the ne temere decree as a device to ensure that its flock increased and in this regard it was successful.
Would Poster T Mor regard all similiar corporate strategms
to maintain and increase their membership as cruel & oppressive?
