Massimo Faggioli tells Ross Douthat1that the latter does not know theology and Fr.Norbert Hoffman sdb suggests the same to Edward Pentin.2
In a sense they are correct.Since Douthat, the New York Times columnist and Edward Pentin, correspondent at the National Catholic Register are not telling the Left that the 'new theology' in the Catholic Church is based on an irrational premise and inference.It was made official and common with the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 to the Archbishop of Boston.
The leftist professors of theology were telling Ross Douthat that with Vatican Council II ( Cushingism version) there is no old ecclesiology. They mean it sincerely. Since they can only intepret Vatican Council II and extra ecclesiam nulla salus, with the Cusningite premise and inference to reach a non traditional conclusion. While Douthat cannot correct them since he does not know that there is a Feeneyite alternative.
Possibly Prof. Massimo Faggioli thinks Fr.S.Visintin, Dean of Theology at St.Anselm, Rome is a 'criminal' and does not know theology, like Ross Douthat
