Petulant Hans Kung to skip Vatican II celebration

 Hans Kung - prefers to mourn

Kung waited until the last second to notify his hosts he wouldn't be coming, which is not the behavior of a gentleman.  Well, as Colonel Harrington observed in The Lady Eve,  "a mug is a mug in everything."

If a man such as Kung considers the fiftieth anniversary of the Council an occasion better suited to mourning than celebration, perhaps the Church has come through the post-Council crisis in better shape than some of us fear.


  1. Nice outfit, Hans -- don't forget it's Wing Night at the Redondo Applebee's!

  2. Ha! There is more than a whiff of Boca Raton about Hans nowadays.
