With the irrational premise, Lumen Gentium 16 ( invincible ignorance) refers to a visible and not an invisible case.So it is an explicit exception to the Feeneyite interpretation of EENS for him. The hypothetical case is assumed to be non hypothetical and so it a rejection of EENS. In this way Vatican Council II is a rupture with Tradition. It has,to use his term, the hermeneutic of rupture.
If he chose to interpret LG 16 as being invisible instead of visible, then LG 16 would not contradict the traditional interpretation of the dogma EENS.Vatican Council II would not be a rupture with Tradition and the old ecclesiology. He would be interpreting the Council just like me.
However he chose the irrational premise and conclusion, just like his friends Fr. Karl Rahner and Fr.Hans Kung.
So when he wrote Redemptoris Missio he does not affirm the exclusivist ecclesiology of the 16th century but instead criticizes it.The same ambiguous passages of Redemptoris Missio which reject traditional ecclesiology are there in Dominus Iesus. It seems like a cut and paste job.
In the following passage from Dominus Iesus 2, Cardinal Ratzinger does not say that all non Catholics need to be incorporated into the Church as members for salvation.Since he has heretically rejected the dogma EENS with an irrational premise.With bad philosophy he has created a new and non traditional theology which was approved by his liberal friends like Fr. Karl Rahner.
In considering the values which these religions witness to and
offer humanity, with an open and positive approach, the
Second Vatican Council's Declaration on the relation of the
Church to non-Christian religions states: “The Catholic
Church rejects nothing of what is true and holy in these
religions. She has a high regard for the manner of life and
conduct, the precepts and teachings, which, although
differing in many ways from her own teaching,
nonetheless often reflect a ray of that truth which
enlightens all men”. Continuing in this line of thought,
the Church's proclamation of Jesus Christ, “the way, the
truth, and the life” (Jn 14:6), today also makes use of the
practice of inter-religious dialogue. Such dialogue certainly
does not replace, but rather accompanies
the missio ad gentes, directed toward that “mystery of
unity”, from which “it follows that all men and women
who are saved share, though differently,
in the same mystery of salvation in Jesus Christ through
his Spirit” Inter-religious dialogue, which is part of the
Church's evangelizing mission, requires an attitude of
understanding and a relationship of mutual knowledge
and reciprocal enrichment, in obedience to the truth
and with respect for freedom.-Dominus Iesus 2
Again he continues to project Jesus Christ
without the necessity of being a member
of the Church for salvation.This is a new
doctrine in the Church.Salvation without
the necessity of 'faith and baptism'
in the Catholic Church.This contradicts
Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II.
There is known salvation outside the
Church in the new theology. So
Fr. Karl Rahner s.j could posit the
theory of the Anonymous Christian.
This theory was defended by Cardinal
Ratzinger.It was institutionalised
in the Catholic Church.It is there in
the Catechism of the Catholic Church
