Hans Küng Continues His Dissent

March 11th, 2011, Promulgated by Dr. K

The latest dissent from the so-called theologian, Hans Küng:

“Tuebingen, Germany – Controversial Swiss-bornCatholic theologian Hans Kueng on Wednesday launched a new book attacking papal authority and calling on rank-and-file Catholics to seize control of the church from its clerical masters.

The book Can the Church Still Be Saved? was set to go on sale in Germany Thursday, coinciding with the worldwide release of a book by Pope Benedict XVI titled Jesus of Nazareth – Part II.

Kueng, who has lived most of his life in Tuebingen, Germany, tangled with church authorities in the 1970s. His 1983 book Infallible? attacked the 1870 proclamation of papal infallibility. He was stripped of his licence to teach but remains a priest.

Speaking at the book launch in Tuebingen, Germany, Wednesday, the 82-year-old said Jesus Christ would not like today’s Catholic Church.

If Jesus of Nazareth returned, he would not prohibit contraceptives, he would not shut out divorced people, and so on, Kueng said.” [As we all know, progressives know exactly “WWJD”]

Someone once told me that the writings of Küng are in the St. Bernard library. It wouldn’t surprise me, considering that the National Catholic Reporter is available at our discernment house at Beckett Hall, but I hope it’s not true.

    I distinctly recall being handed something Kung wrote at the UR Newman Community when I was there. I also recall one of my good friends being incensed about it at the time…

    “REALLY? We’ve got 10,000 saints, and they quote a heretic?! ARGH!”

    What would happen if someone gave the discernment house a gift subscription to the Remnant?

  3. Choirloft says:

    I would gladly send a subscription to the Remnant, the Wanderer and Catholic Family News to Becket Hall.

    Hans Kung is a true and great prophet. Scoff at him now people. Long after you are gone his wisdom will live and be honored.

  5. Scott W. says:

    His wisdom is already circling the drain and no one really stands out as a replacement.

  6. Mike says:

    vernon argont,

    Hans Kung, Charles Curran and the rest of that lot have spent the bulk of their careers attempting to convince the Catholic Church that she should embrace the modernist culture and transform herself into just one more fading, liberal Protestant denomination.

    Kung a prophet? Hardly!
