Asleep At The Switch...
Yet again

I've written about "Father" Peter Phan before. He's the same goomba that's stated:
...non-Christian religions in themselves “have a positive role in salvation history” and do not merely prepare for the Christian Gospel; that “it makes little sense to try to convert non-Christians to Christianity;” and that “the Catholic Church cannot be identified with the church of Christ.”How we have the latest;

US bishops issue caution on Georgetown theologian's work

Washington, Dec. 11, 2007 (CWNews.com) - The US bishops' conference has issued a caution on the work of a Georgetown University theologian.

After a lengthy investigation that was undertaken at the suggestion of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the US bishops' doctrinal committee issued a statement on December 10 saying that the work of Father Peter Phan contained "pervading ambiguities and equivocations that could easily confuse of mislead the faithful."

Father Phan, a former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America, came under scrutiny because of his book, Being Religious Interreligiously. Church officials questioned whether the book's approach to religious pluralism could be reconciled with established Catholic doctrine. Father Phan argues in that book that certain doctrinal statements regarding the unique role of Christ and his Church in the economy of salvation may have "outlived their usefulness."

No disciplinary action was taken by the US bishops against Father Phan, who continues to hold an endowed chair at Georgetown, America's oldest Catholic university.
Wow... a "caution". I'm underwhelmed. And the USCCB had to be "suggested" into action by Rome. Interesting. And this flat-out espouser of heresy is still one of the heavy hitters at a "Catholic" university.

I'm just so friggin' disgusted. Make me pope for a day... just one lousy day.

Vir,
You, or me, or any caveman. Action number One - sending Mahoney to a cloistered monastery run by a Caveman Abbott.
