😁 Dr Bobus WOW! Where did YOU come from?? ☕ Very in the know, indeed, about the GERMANS... 🙄 I'm still trying to figure them out... 😀 😀 ✍️ UNWORTHY "...
We shouldn't need to speak against a priest who has declared himself an enemy of God like Cardinal Marx"...strong words...I can only 🤐 🤗 😇 ebenso...

Also: The gradualism proposed by Cardinal Marx obligates one to assent to the moral principle sub poena peccati but not to the behavior it governs.

The Cardinal's approach is typically German. Germans tend to be philosophical Idealists, which makes it all but impossible to apply a moral principle to a concrete situation. And so many years ago German thought turned toward Existentialism and all but abandoned any attempt to apply the principle. They insist they don't contradict the moral principle by not applying it. In fact, they have made it irrelevant and unattainable pie in the sky, and the false gradualism proposed by Cardinal Marx is the consequence.

Despite the well known German love and respect for education and scholarship, Germany has never produced a great theologian who was expert in the thought of St Thomas. There have been men like Pieper and Grabmann, but the former was not really a theologian, and the latter never attained the status of a Garrigou LaGrange or Santiago Ramirez.

I don't think the majority of bishops agree with Cardinal Kasper. The liberals are just right now very vocal.

😈 UNWORTHY I feel "unworthy" to give my opinion... ✍️ BUT, yes, if the bishops decide to erase "living in sin" from the Catechism, for example--what's next???? 🤐 🙏 🙏 🙏

I agree with you Carlos Barquin.

I agree Mr. Barquin, do you agree Irapauto? 😊
Silvia Grassi
I totally agree with you Carlos Barquin...

If the majority of the bishops are following Kasper, then the majority are embracing heresy! The teaching of the Church on matters of faith and morals has not changed in 2000 years and it cannot change just to accommodate the sinfulness of the present era. May God protect His Church!
