HANS Kung has had more gripes with authority in the Catholic Church over the last 30 years than Michael Jackson had noses in the same period.

Depending on one's point of view, what is either deeply troubling or exhilarating about people's positive reactions to Dr Kung's open letter is the fact that their coherency reveals varying degrees of real engagement with his thinking.

However, I wonder how many of these pharisaic commentators would pass the test when it comes to Dr Ratzinger's writings? In these, they would encounter a Catholic spirituality as deeply rooted and enriching as anything of Dr Kung's.
