Cardinal Kasper thinks 2000 years of Catholics who contradict him have not been listening to 'the spirit'
This interview is so loaded wih Kasper's agenda to use the synod to jackhammer 2000 years of theology, one hardly knows where to begin.
At this point, I'm going to guess those holding on to the delusion Pope Francis is not the wind beneath Kasper's wings are suffering from a bad case of willful ignorance.
I would urge you to take the time to stomach the whole article but let me give you Kasper's major talking points.
Kasper explains the 2000 years of theologians before him and Pope Francis have misunderstood what mercy is all about.
It's all been a big misunderstanding.
Mercy isn't cheap grace that takes away the commandments.
No, no, no - that would be absurd.
It's all about twisting the interpretation up into a pretzel. Why Thomas Aquinas taught us that!
Doctrine won't change. They're going to instruct everyone to stop using doctrine as the source to measure the discipline of our conduct.
When you read doctrine that prohibits a certain conduct, that is the time to stop disciplining youself.
We must read the sign of the times. He and Pope Francis can't imagine the majority of the synod will go against the crystal ball of the current Pope.
This is what you call living "the reality of the senses" of polygamists.
You see, the understanding of the Gospel lives in the souls of people who reject the museum of Church teaching.
The Joy of the Gospel comes from your needs, not the code of doctrines and commandments.
So if you need your neighbor's car, forget about doctrines and commandments about stealing.
If you need a booty call, do not use the discernment of the code of doctrines and commandmets.
Why not use Kieran Conroy to show the Pope's see of Bishops how to execute the strategy?
Cardinal Kasper goes on to explain that the Romans have "fears" about the Pope's idioms and concrete moral construction in the new Evangelii Gaudium.
We're a paranoid bunch.
I'll tell you what Carol "needs" for Evangelii Gaudium. She needs to stay further away from these people than people exhibiting symptoms of Ebola.
Take the time to read the whole interview. It is surreal.
I'll say it again...This is going to get ugly!
