It is really surprising that Kung is still put up with. Nearly 40 years ago, his books were deemed suitable as end-of-year prizes at a Presbyterian Church bible class! (Although that may also say something about the state of the Presbyterian Church in New Zealand in the 70s). I received one myself. So when I finally came home to the true Church in 2008, I was most surprised to find that Kung was Catholic (at least according to him).

Kung has long believed in infallibility, that is, his own infallibility. Let's hope that his good friend Benedict XVI will treat him with truth and charity - by telling him the truth about Hell and hopefully save him from going there. Kung has been treated with kid gloves for way too many years.

If we follow "his" advice, we would no longer be Catholic, we will be Anglican.

Unfortunately for Kung, the young that are still in the Church are solidly orthodox. They'll be taking their marching orders from the likes of Fr. Z!

"He told the mostly elderly audience..." No need to read any further.

Is this what is meant by having a "Jesus Complex?"
