Why should we care what he "demands" and who is he to "demand" anything?

Translation of his article here





There is scant affection between Hans Kung and Joseph Ratzinger (Joe da Rat) going back to their days at Tubigen. Kung had his credentials yanked during John Paul 2's pontificate with Ratzinger as the Grand Inquisitor. You can chalk this up to payback.

Neither Cardinal Ratzinger nor Pope Benedict has been a help to Ecumenicity ... So Dr. Kung's Disquiet is for good Reason ...

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

I wonder if Kung will be defrocked and excommunicated.

Agree, mc. Often I cannot open the OP.


In this instance I think the Discuss Catholicism board would have been the better option. I am very familiar with the writings of Hans Kung--I buy his books in translation. I'm fringey Catholic, no longer in the pews so to speak but I've also done the college credits at a Catholic college in theology and philosophy--50 years ago in a more reasonable age. Kung appeals to many of us and we do know about Ratzinger/Benedict's split. An interesting feature of the split involved Ratzinger's disdain for the student upheaval in the late sixties. John Paul II and Benedict could not abide the US dominance in so much.

Why piss all over our forum with the maniacal rantings of a disgruntled catholic? He's mad at the pope. Big deal. Most of the world doesn't give the pope any attention. They could not care less that some guy in Germany doesn't like the pope.
