If you wanted to know the real reason why the CDF released the latest document, a commentator for CNN says:
Just chalk it up to an old man trying to get a little attention.
My favorite part of this ex-Catholic’s idiotic commentary is:
It doesn’t matter what Pope Benedict XVI has to say, or for that matter, any other religious leader. A Christian believes in Jesus Christ and what He had to say, not what a man of God has to say. This is not an attempt to completely dismiss religious leaders, but is further evidence of what happens when ego is more important than the work of Christ.
And then of course doesn’t see the problem with quoting the Bible in the next paragraph since now we are to listen to what this man of God has to say.
Oh and remember that Catholics are not encouraged to read the scriptures even though scripture reading is indulgenced or that Catholics hear more scripture at Mass then the average Protestant Church.
Jimmy Akin is up in arms and wants to write a response to this.
