Grumpy Old Men

From Scott Richert. I wish atheists would bother to educate themselves about Catholicism before attacking the Church. To quote:
Either Dawkins is a liar, and he knows that what he wrote is a steaming pile of bull—this is anything but "big," Küng is "one of the world's most distinguished theologians" only in his own mind and in that of a few hundred radical nuns and defrocked priests, and the last time he could be considered a "very important Catholic thinker" was before the start of Vatican II, 50 years ago—or he's not nearly as bright as I thought he was. Or, perhaps, he's so blinded by hatred for the Catholic Church and the current Pope that he is able to convince himself that up is down and left is right.

Küng's "exclusive" interview with Miss Connolly got no play outside the Guardian and, and it will have zero effect on the future of the Catholic Church, Dawkins' effusions notwithstanding. (Read entire article.)

Amen. What he said. And Alleluia.
