Australian debate continues; editor of priests' magazine raps Cardinal Pell

Catholic World News - April 14, 2011

The editor of an Australian magazine for Catholic priests has criticized Sydney’s Cardinal George Pell for the cardinal’s public denunciation of theological extremists.

Father Peter Maher, the editor of The Swag, said that Cardinal Pell’s comments had been “full of slogans and not well argued.” The cardinal had spoken out in response to an article in The Swag by Father Eric Hodgens, which had blasted the late Pope John Paul II and other recent Pontiffs on a wide variety of issues. The magazine is published by the National Council of Priests.

    The *Cardinal's* article was full of slogans? Riiiiight. Hodgens' article reads like a 1st semester paper in Heterodoxy 101. Give us a break.
