The Case of the Missing “Sacred Givens”

A couple months back I waded through a theology professor’s detailed analysis of Cardinal Kasper’s intellectual foundations, upon which his troubling views on church doctine are founded. This week, George Weigel posted a much clearer and briefer summary of his understanding of Prof. Stark and Cardinal Kasper on First Things. Weigel says that by absolutizing history, Cardinal Kasper minimizes or does away with the “sacred givens” of God’s revelation.

It’s a short read, and much clearer and easier to track than my earlier post — and as always, the First Things comments are interesting, as well — although many focus on Humana Vitae and contraception, rather the issue of Cardinal Kasper’s intellectual roots.
