Interesting post.It's curious how some will say that Brown's teaching is contrary to Vatican II. Well, Fitzmyer was appointed to the PBC and his views aren't that much different than Brown's. Donald Senior, a current member of the PBS, is a Brownian. Is there any doubt that if you looked at all the members of the PBC they would be much closer to Brown than, say, the so-called Catholic apologists?In addition, Brown's books in which he set forth a liberal interpretation of VII were given the impramatuer by JP II appointed-bishops.Finally, Kasper has very leftist views on biblical inspiration and he was re-appointed by Benedict as the Vatican bureacrat. No one can deny that Benedict knows full well what Kasper teaches.But all this is irrelevant, since we are supposed to follow the ideas of those who have never been appointed to anything.
