Weigle Pounds Kung

Weigel rips Küng for attack on Pope Benedict

George Weigel takes Hans Küng to task for his vituperative personal attack on Pope Benedict XVI, calling it “mean-spirited condemnation of an old friend.” Weigel notes that Küng “single-handedly invented a new global personality-type– the dissident theologian as international media star.” However, he argues, the dissident’s timing is poor:
“…you relentlessly pursue your fifty-year quest for a liberal Protestant Catholicism, at precisely the moment when the liberal Protestant project is collapsing from its inherent theological incoherence.”

It is a constant because every time, on different terrain, striking Benedict XVI means striking the very man who has worked and is working, on that same terrain, with the greatest foresight, resolve, and success.

The tempest that followed his lecture in Regensburg on September 12, 2006 was the first of the series. FOR THE WHOLE ARTICLE CLICK HERE.
