The New Canon Law: Part IV:The Teaching Authority of the Church

Pursuant to the post below:

Canon: 1325: para 3

The Catholics shall not enter into any dispute or conferences with non-Catholics, especially public
ones, without permission of the Holy See, or, in urgent case, of the Ordinary. (Canon 1325.)

What in the Heck does that mean?

As Catholics, when we are baptized and more directly when we are confirmed we accept the mandatum to preach the gospel.  How can we if we can't enter into a dispute with non Catholics.

What does it mean to enter into a dispute or conference with non catholics?  I thought it meant, catholics are not allowed to debate non catholics unless they have the pope's (or Bishop's permission)  I mean if that is the case, then, jeez arguing with some people who visit my blog is wrong??? That sounds not right.

Canon Law is confusing, in general

God sent Moses 10 commandments, and exactly how many pages of laws and regulations did the Israelites come up with.

The Jesus reduces those ten two a measly two (Love God, Love your neighbour) and the Catholic Church comes up with over 1000 pages of catechism and how many pages of canon law, and excathedra statements.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
