Benedict Slams “Theology of FrankenPope”

Benedict Slams “Theology of FrankenPope” – 3/17/18

Finally the whole letter has been published which Benedict XVI wrote to Monsignor Dario Viganò, the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications, in response to a request to write an introduction to eleven booklets entitled “Theology of Pope Francis”. In his letter Benedict politely declined the offer.

Earlier this week Viganò published selected parts of the letter giving the impression that Benedict had lauded Francis and his “theology”.

The until recently unpublished parts of the letter contain a bombshell because Benedict XVI criticises the fact that the anti-Catholic German theologian Fr Peter Hünermann is among the authors of the booklets. This is what Benedict wrote:

“As a side note I would like to express my surprise at the fact that among the authors there is also Professor Hünermann, who during my pontificate made himself known for heading anti-papal initiatives. He participated to a significant extent in the publication of the “Kölner Erklärung”, which, in the context of the encyclical Veritatis Splendor attacked in a virulent manner the magisterial authority of the Pope especially on questions of moral theology. Also the ‘Europäische Theologengesellschaft’ which he founded, was initially thought of as an organization in opposition to the papal magisterium.”

  1. Ach, du lieber!
    It’s come to this, has it? A liberal 90 year old ex-pope in a theological rift with an 80-something year old Argentinian Lutheran “presumptive pope” ( future historians and canonists will have to sort that mess out ), the product of conclavial connivances even Frau Hitlery Sodom Clintonovich simply has to admire, along with a thoroughly discredited Vatican flak machine – and Mort and Glenda Flob from St. Elsewhere’s still think things are just hunky-dory in the Nervous Ordeal’s now daily increasing agitprop war on all things even remotely Catholic?
