A Response to Fr Weinandy’s 2017 Letter to the Pope – characterized by Fr. Dwight Longenecker

Not just “churchy” people, but they may have led the way and remain very good at weasel talk, here a presumably friendly admonition, one theologian to another.

What gets me is not the content, but the tone churchy people use these days. It can only be described as sentimental mumbo jumbo.

Its become a kind of new Catholic orthodoxy. In the old days prelates inveighed in magisterial tones against heresy, wickedness, dissent and apostasy. They spelled out their disagreements clearly and logically.

Now it’s beg-your-pardon etc.
