Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Rev. Charles E. Curran (born March 30, 1934) is a moral theologian. He currently serves at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, as the Elizabeth Scurlock University Professor of Human Values. Charles Curran was ordained in Rome in 1958 for the Diocese of Rochester, New York. As a young priest, he was a peritus at the Second Vatican Council. Curran was previously removed from his tenured faculty position at Catholic University of America (CUA) in 1967 for his views on birth control, but was reinstated after a five-day faculty-led strike. Curran then returned to prominence, however, in 1968 when he, along with a group of some 600 theologians, authored a response to Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's encyclical affirming the traditional ban on artificial contraception. Curran continued to teach and write on the Church's teaching in various moral issues, including premarital sex, masturbation, contraception, abortion, homosexual acts, divorce, euthanasia, and in vitro fertilization throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
