Pope Meets with Hans Kung

The Associated Press is reporting that the new pope met with Hans Kung this weekend.

Kung was fired from his teaching position in 1979 after he criticized the doctrine of papal infallibility.

Perhaps the Vatican is signaling a willingness to reconsider its theologically indefensible doctrine of papal infallibility. That doctrine is a major roadblock to Christian unity.

Or at least it could mean that Benedict is willing to permit a wider range of discourse and ideas within the Catholic Church than his predecessor. Which would also be a good thing.
