Comments on: Catholic reform theologian Hans Küng, 85, considers assisted suicide Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Taumpj Mon, 11 Nov 2013 04:27:58 +0000 Spiritual things are spiritually worked out and not intellectually. Kung is very wrong.

By the way, Mr. Kung will be so offended by your suggestion that he be associated with that phallocentric, Chauvinist, power drunken and archaic title that has nothing to do with the modern world.
I just laugh at the way dissenters polish their view with God-word, notice how Mr. Kung says, “surrender” their lives to God voluntarily if illness, pain or dementia make further living unbearable”. This is not only unchristian, it is surely a “Capping” of a life of unfaithfulness to Christ and His Church and an excuse for his inability to truly surrender to the will of God, a virtue he has whole-heartedly rejected for years.
There is pain, suffering and sorrow in human existence and as difficult as it may be, Christ and His Church has taught us to do our best to offer these difficulties up to God and not run away from them.
I will not be surprised to hear that Mr. Kung has taken his life and this shameful or rather, shameless last stunt will be his justification for it.
I will be the first to acknowledge the fact that in my comment I have not been very charitable to Mr. Kung, but I think a spade needs to be called a spade in some instances so that the truth might shine forth.

Pope Francis must name him a Cardinals pronto, to begin to roll back the Vatican’s shameful history of treating alternative and prophetic voices like Hans Kung’s so unjustly.

Francis is sadly unlikely to do so as he merely rearranges the Curial deck chairs on the sinking Vatican Titanic.

For evidence of this, please see, at, my recent remarks as a Harvard trained Catholic international lawyer.
