Atilla Sinke Guimaraes: Post-Conciliar Popes all Progressivists

I am currently reading Atilla Sinke Guimaraes's Desire to Destroy, (the first of two parts, volume IV of his extensive series Eli, Eli lama Sabacthani) after having completed his In the Murky Waters of Vatican II. In it he presents persuasive evidence that Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI intentionally gave the neo-modernists (progressivists) what amounted to free reign over the second Vatican Council. Among those mentioned are; Fr's. (later) Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), Hans Küng, Edward Shillebeeckx, Yves Congar, Karl Rahner, Marie Dominique Chenu, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Henri de Lubac, Karol Wyjtola (Pope John Paul II) and others--many of whom were among those that Pope Pius XII accused of harboring modernist sympathies.

Guimaraes clearly believes that all of the post-Conciliar Popes have embraced progressivism that is neo-modernism. He alleges that Vatican II represents a clear rupture with the Roman Catholic Church of pre-Conciliar record. What is amazing to me is that there was no huge outcry (at the time of the Council) that much of its teaching was totally incompatible (by the law of non-contradiction) with prior yet constant magisterial teaching. It is as if all of the faithful orthodox and traditional members of the Council simply abdicated their responsibility to maintain the faith.

No comments:

What/Where is the Roman Catholic Church?

In light of Traditional Catholic dogma/doctrine, how should the Second Vatican Council be viewed ? Is it consistent with Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and prior Magisterial teaching?

What explains the tremendous amount of "bad fruit" which has been forthcoming since the close of the Council in 1965? “By their fruits you shall know them” (Matt. 7:16)

This site explores these questions and more in an attempt to place the Second Vatican Council in proper perspective.
