With his "internal policies," this Pope betrayed the council numerous times. Instead of using the conciliatory program words "Aggiornamento - Dialogue and Collegiality -- ecumenical," what's valid now in doctrine and practice is "restoration, lectureship, obedience and re-Romanization." The criteria for the appointment of a bishop is not the spirit of the gospel or pastoral open-mindedness, but rather to be absolutely loyal to the party line in Rome. Before their appointment, their fundamental conformity is tested based on a curial catalog of questions and they are sacrally sealed through a personal and unlimited pledge of obedience to the Pope that is tantamount to an oath to the "Fuehrer."
Would it be uncharitable of me to suggest that Küng, who grew up in neutral Switzerland during the greatest conflagration of the twentieth century, shielded from any consequences of that calamity, might choose his words more carefully when speaking of a man who chose the way of the cross in an underground seminary in the blackest heart of Nazi oppression?
