Gavin D'Costa and Joseph Shaw continue to interpret Vatican Council II with Cushingism rejecting the traditional Catholic ecclesiology by using a false premise and inference.
Both Catholic teachers of theology in the U.K are presenting a politically correct version of the Catholic Faith. If they would interpret Vatican Council II with Feeneyism ; by avoiding the false premise, inference and conclusion, Vatican Council II would be in agreement with the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
They cannot do this without losing their jobs at the U.K universities,where they do not tolerate Catholic orthodoxy.
Joseph Shaw a traditionalist, is ironically using the same theology as D'Costa a liberal.
Joseph Shaw also refuses to comment or correct Gavin D'Costa's promotional video on the University of Bristol's website in which he refers to ' a ray of that Truth' (NA 2) which can be found in other religions.He then says on the video that we should learn from other religions.He does not mention that the Catholic Church teaches that the members of the other religions need 'faith and baptism'(AG 7, LG 14) for salvation.They are all going to Hell without it. He probably does not believe in this teaching of Vatican Council II.It contradicts much of his work at the University of Bristol.
He may not like to quote the orthodox passages in Vatican Council II or affirm the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus but the university should at least be honest and tell people what the Catholic Church really teaches in Vatican Council II.
The university of Bristol video is misleading and its department on religion and theology is academically unethical and clearly political.
D'Costa is to speak on Christian doctrine next April as if there is a common Christian doctrine, a common Christian religion. The doctrines are different and the title of his silly talk is on a 'development and error' of this vague term Christian doctrine.1
Possibly Joseph Shaw too at the University of Oxford has to give a talk on the new ecumenism as if it is a new religion and he goes ahead and does it since it would be expected of him as a liberal theologian.He cannot project himself saying the Catholic Church teaches that all non Catholics are on the way to Hell.
He attends the old Mass but without the old ecclesiology. He is a liberal on the issue of salvation,since he uses the new theology based on 'an innovation' in philosophical thinking.
Gavin D'Costa on the video (7:07) says mission is important and for him it means sharing the faith. He means of course it is sharing - without Catholic doctrine which tells us that all non Catholics are on the part to Hell.
For both Shaw and D'Costa Vatican Council II is a slogan, a political position.
