Cardinal Walter Brandmüller has criticised Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the general-secretary of Merkel’s party CDU, for having said recently that she hopes for the ordination of women to the priesthood and wanted become a priestess herself.
Writing in the German weekly Tagespost (May 17), Brandmüller said that Kramp-Karrenbauer as a politician and as a Catholic has crossed borders.
Brandmüller stresses that whoever claims that a female priest is possible, has left the foundations of the Catholic Faith.
And, “This person has committed the offence of heresy which results in an excommunication from the Church.”
