Cardinal Ruini was also very critical. He [also]added: “I don’t know if I understood well, but at this moment, about 85% of the Cardinals have expressed opinions apparently contrary to the layout of the report.” He added that among those who did not say anything – therefore could not be classified – he took from their silence that: “I believe they are embarrassed”.
Let Cardinal Kasper have clenched teeth all he wants. He’ll have to answer to the Lord for even suggesting “Adultery-by-any-other-name” as an option. The fact that this man was even given a platform – even for a second – to discuss his pet issue from the 1970s is very disturbing.
Still…we have to give thanks that 85% are against his heretical opinion while the other 14% are too embarrassed to say anything.
Here’s the gong which Socon or Bust has been bonging for some time now:
Cardinal Ruini: “It would be a fatal mistake” to follow the pastoral approach without referring to doctrine.
Like no kidding. Almost every liberal impetus these days in the Church is ass-backwards. The pastoral approach is supposed to be BUILT on DOCTRINE, the teaching of Christ. You cannot have an opposite pastoral approach from doctrine…otherwise you simply look like a fool and a hypocrite.
