Translation: It's a while since we've heard from Kung so we decided to stir the pot by asking him the usual provocative questions.
It's all very well to point out the error of his ways but it appears no one can summon the courage to give him the old heave ho.
Oh, well, then, that certainly clinches it!
He is a theologian, but officially he is not a Catholic theologian. His authority to describe himself as such has long been revoked.
Only in his mind.
Gee, are there not enough Protestant (protester...of the Catholic Church) churches in the world including not denominational ones?!? Found one of your own or find one that fits your beliefs....just stupid.
Correction: Hans Kung is NOT a Catholic theologian. He calls himself “catholic,” and he used to be a “priest.” He has deliberately cut himself off from any legitimate attachment to the Roman Catholic Church. He is a liar and a charlatan, but he is NOT a Catholic theologian. Time for the woodshed for the writer of this article.
This is what occurs when rebellious priests are not defrocked and excommunicated where needed.
Dear Herr Kueng,
Everything you want may be found in the dying mainstream Protestant churches. Please join one of them and leave our Church alone!
How crazy, a church that expects its leadership to believe in church doctrine, that is just insane.
The Church is not the same as a political system of government as its end is different. It is based on divine revelation in Jesus Christ and has as its main goal preserving such saving truth down through the ages. As such, it is not a democracy, as the truths of divine revelation cannot be changed by popular vote. Rather the apostles of Jesus Christ passed on, by the laying on of hands, the task of preserving and teaching the divinely revealed deposit of faith in Jesus Christ to their successors, the bishops in communion with the successor of Peter, the Pope, and so it has been handed down through the ages. The Magisterium governs the Church through holding fast to the Word of God in Scripture and Tradition.
Sounds like a modern- day Martin Luther. :)
Man these folks just don’t like it when they’re told they can’t do something they WANT to do! They want the Church to change HER policies, because they ‘feel uncomfortable’ being told what they’re doing is wrong.
