Correction: Canon 1373 was revised as of December 8

Canon 1373 was revised. The revised version was posted on June 1, 2021 and took effect on December 8, 2021. Here are the two versions:

Revised text:
Can. 1373
A person who publicly incites
hatred or animosity against the Apostolic See
or the Ordinary because of some act of
ecclesiastical office or duty, or who provokes
disobedience against them, is to be punished
by interdict or other just penalties.

Previous text:
Can. 1373 A person who publicly incites among
subjects animosities or hatred against the
Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some
act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or
provokes subjects to disobey them is to be
punished by an interdict or other just penalties.

The phrase “among subjects” was taken out with the result that the canon is broadened to also cover those who are not in authority. A reader suggests that the change may be crafted to take into account the public platforms available to bloggers and via social media which enable any individual with normal access to easily reach large numbers of people.
