This cannot be authentic. He may indeed hold some of these opinions and positions but I’m doubtful about some others. And even of those that sound like they might be what he believes, I have serious doubts about his willingness to air them this bluntly.
But I pray that I’m wrong.
It just doesn’t seem credible.
What can you tell us about the website from which it came?
It's an official diocesan website. It is a suffragan diocese to the Archdiocese of Liverpool. It's bishop is Bishop Terrance John Brain. It's communications officer is Fr. John Flynn. The diocese as 315,000 faithful registered.
Otherwise, not much.
I agree. The use of the term “low information voter” was the clue for me. Go the the Dioceses website which indicates Pope Benedict will go the UK in the Fall. I know that it false.
I agree totally with all of this Cardinal’s responses. But, I also find it fascinating if this interview were to be authentic. So, I will express doubts until I see proof of authenticity.
