Weigel rips Küng for attack on Pope Benedict

George Weigel takes Hans Küng to task for his vituperative personal attack on Pope Benedict XVI, calling it “mean-spirited condemnation of an old friend.” Weigel notes that Küng “single-handedly invented a new global personality-type– the dissident theologian as international media star.” However, he argues, the dissident’s timing is poor:
“…you relentlessly pursue your fifty-year quest for a liberal Protestant Catholicism, at precisely the moment when the liberal Protestant project is collapsing from its inherent theological incoherence.”

Mr. Weigel’s articulation is “hitting the nail on the head” again! Cannot miss the point he is making and like a breath of fresh air, the pollution disperses.
