Cardinal Kasper Gears Up for Vatican Synod: ‘You Are Born Gay’By: Michael J. Matt | Editor
"At a recent launch in Rome for his new book Witness to Mercy, the Cardinal complained of those who want to close off dialogue on certain issues as if they were settled forever.
"In his book, released to coincide with the opening of the synod, the Cardinal deals with a number of hot-button issues, such as homosexuality. “For me, this inclination is a question mark: it does not reflect the original design of God and yet it is a reality, because you are born gay,” he says in the book.
"Kasper advocates a more holistic approach to theology, while lamenting what he terms “a certain fundamentalism” in the Church. “You take one line of the Gospel and this becomes an ideology to support your case,” he said." READ REPORT HERE
REMNANT COMMENT Okay now, remember, this crackpot is the "Pope's theologian."
This is the guy whose book Francis plugged by name during his very first Wednesday audience after his election as Pope.
This is the heretic Francis praised to the high heavens last year: "I would like to thank him [Cardinal Kasper], because I found a deep theology, and serene thoughts in theology. It is nice to read serene theology. It did me well and I had an idea, and excuse me if I embarrass Your Eminence, but the idea is: this is called doing theology while kneeling. Thank you. Thank you.”
That's right, this is the same Cardinal Kasper who is driving the Synod on the Family. The very same character who, according to Cardinal Godfried Daneels, worked feverishly since the pontificate of Pope John Paul II to get rid of Cardinal Ratzinger and to elevate Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the chair of St. Peter. Did Kasper have anything to do with Pope Benedict’s bizarre abdication? OH, WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
Everybody okay with this? Neo-Catholics--we all good here? No worries?
I didn’t think so!
