Cardinal Raymond Burke must note that Pope Pius XII made a mistake in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 and so there can be two interpretations of Vatican Council II.One is irrational and the other is irrational, one has the hermeneutic of rupture and the other one of continuity.One interpretation has ambiguity and the other is without it.The irrational one I call Cushingism and the rational one I call Feeneyism.Cushingism is non traditional and Feeneyism is traditional.Cushingism has an innovation and Feeneyism is without it.
Since Cardinal Burke is a Cushingite he cannot say all Muslims in 2016 need ' faith and baptism' to avoid Hell.He will not say that all Muslims in 2016 are oriented to Hell without 'faith and baptism'.Since he is a Cushingite he cannot only cite the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus( Feeneyite) with reference to Islam.Since the Cushingite baptism of desire refers to visible cases in 2016 which are allegedly exceptions to all needing to formally enter the Church.This is his irrational philosophy.
It is magisterial since the time of Pope Pius XII.
This error has made theology and Catholic doctrine so complicated that when speaking about Islam he has to restrict himself only to political and social issues.Cushingism restricts him.
His position is a rupture with the saints( St. Thomas Aquinas and others) on Islam.It is also a big rupture with the ecclesiology of the Traditional Latin Mass at the time of St. Thomas Aquinas.
I have been writing about this to him since the time he was the Archbishop at St.Louis, Missouri, USA and the archdiocese website was pro-ADL on salvation and the Jews.He was and still is a liberal.
A few months back when Pope Benedict said EENS was no more like it was in the 16th century since there was ' a development' with Vatican Council II, Cardinal Burke was silent.Since Pope Benedict was expressing Cardinal Burke's liberal and irrational interpretation of Vatican Council II.It is only because of the Cushingite, New Theology that there is a development.
I avoid it.
So there is no development in Vatican Council II for me.
Like me he too can interpret Vatican Council II with Feeneyism ( there are no known exceptions to EENS in 2016).Then his theological and doctrinal interpretation on Islam will change.
Muslims believe that there is exclusive salvation in Islam.This is the position at Al Azhar University.There is no separation of religion and state in Islam.There is no separation between politics and religion.Cardinal Burke could learn from Islam.
Since not only did Cardinal Burke not affirm exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church he did not affirm the Social Reign of Christ the King over all political legislation and the non separation of Church and State.
He can learn from the Muslims and discover what the Church today has forgotten.
Since there is exclusive salvation on Islam only, for Muslim religious leaders,they do not permit inter-faith marriages unless the non Muslim converts.Cardinal Burke who was the head of the Supreme Tribunal at the Vatican has never said that if a Catholic marries a Muslim it is adultery.He does not believe in exclusive salvation in the Church so he does not oppose, on moral grounds, Catholics marrying Protestants.He's a liberal.
So Cardinal Burke, like Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, is now giving us the secular leftist take on Islam.-Lionel Andrades
