答覆幾位記者朋友關於梵蒂岡國務院昨天發出的「聲明」

今天早晨我答應幾位記者朋友關於梵蒂岡國務院昨天發出的「聲明」,我會一次答覆他們的問題。

該「聲明」說了三件事

1.(直接):教宗知道他們在做什麼

2.(間接):教宗同意他們做的

3. 我的言論引起混亂和爭論

甲.

(1)其實我的文章中沒有說教宗不知道,但教宗確實對韓總主教說了「那小組為什麼沒有和我商量」。

(2)教宗對我說的話確實表示他和他們的看法不同,那末「聲明」既不可能懷疑教宗說了謊言,就是肯定我說了謊話。

我的文章說他們做了壞事(錯事?)卻沒有說他們說了謊,現在卻需要讀者判斷是我還是他們說了謊。

乙.如果他們強調的正是(2),那末也就是說教宗同意他們做的那些事。也就是要教宗為他們做的(壞)事負責了。那也就是我的文章想阻止的。

丙.我當然知道我的言論會引起爭論,但不是混亂,我希望爭論的結果是:大家承認他們現在做的是壞事(錯事?),他們該懸崖勒馬了。


My “over-all” answer to questions put to me by friends in the media, after the Press release by the Holy See (or the Secretariate of State?).

The Press release includes 3 statements:

  1. The Pope knows what “they” are doing.
  2. The Pope approves what they are doing.
  3. My article causes confusion and controversy.

A.

(1) I did not say that the Pope doesn’t know what they are doing. But, as a matter of fact, the Pope did tell Archbishop Savio “why that Commission has not conferred with me?”

(2) I did mean that there is difference between what they are doing and the mind of the Holy Father. Now the Declaration denies that. That means they accuse me to be a liar.

I accuse them of doing bad things (wrong things?) but not to be liars. Now people have to make up their mind: who, I or they, must be liar.

B.

If the point (2) is what they are actually most interested in, then they are making the Holy Father responsible for all their evil doings, which is precisely what I tried to prevent.

C.

I was well aware that my article would cause controversy, but my hope is that the controversy may bring to a good conclusion: an agreement that the things “they” are doing are bad (wrong ?), and consequently they must change direction.
