Kresta Comments: Hans Kung Dies

The influential and controversial Swiss theologian Hans Küng has died at age 93. He was an adviser at the Second Vatican Council but in 1979 the CDF declared that he had “departed from the integral truth of Catholic faith, and therefore he can no longer be considered a Catholic theologian nor function as such in a teaching role.” Al discusses.
