KUNG (KUENG), HANS
From THE CATHOLIC VOICE, 12/31/79: "With the approval of Pope John Paul II,
the Vatican has stripped a noted Swiss-born religious thinker, Father Hans
Kueng, of the right to teach and declared that he can no longer be
considered a Catholic theologian. The 51 year old scholar has been accused
of denying papal infallibility as defined by the First Vatican Council.
Father Kueng has not been ex-communicated and still remains a priest."
In the same issue, an editorial says: "Americans are very sensitive to
seeing misuse of power and to situations where due process seems to be
absent. The recent decisions by the Vatican Congregation of the Faith in
the case of German Jesuit Hans Kueng cause a great deal of anxiety and
concern to many Americans, Protestants included. Unfortunately, the stereo-
typed conservative rejoices that these gentlemen have been put in their
places and exposed for their unorthodox thinking and writing. The stereo-
typed liberal, on the other hand, has his suspicions confirmed that beneath
the charismatic smile of our new pope is a close-minded conservative who is
too Polish and who is trying to run the Church in a gestapo-like manner."
