ANOTHER BOMBSHELL FROM CARDINAL KASPER: HE MAKES DEROGATORY, RACIST REMARKS ABOUT FAITHFUL AFRICANS!
This may just get the good Cardinal sidelined. He makes ill-advised racist remarks and implicates Pope Francis in them. One must keep in mind that he is German and for a German to say these things has a very serious racist connotation and arrogance, xenophobia to it! He truly is a lose canon! If a television sportscaster or news reporter said this, they would be fired!
What are your thoughts on what he said in this interview and do the Africans deserve an unambiguous apology from Cardinal Kasper?
ZENIT: It has been said that he added five special rapporteurs on Friday to help the general rapporteur, Cardinal Peter Erdo. Is that because he’s trying to push things through according to his wishes?
Cardinal Kasper: I do not see this going on in the Pope’s head. But I think the majority of these five people are open people who want to go on with this. The problem, as well, is that there are different problems of different continents and different cultures. Africa is totally different from the West. Also Asian and Muslim countries, they’re very different, especially about gays. You can’t speak about this with Africans and people of Muslim countries. It’s not possible. It’s a taboo. For us, we say we ought not to discriminate, we don’t want to discriminate in certain respects.
ZENIT: But are African participants listened to in this regard?
Cardinal Kasper: No, the majority of them [who hold these views won’t speak about them].
ZENIT: They’re not listened to?
Cardinal Kasper: In Africa of course [their views are listened to], where it’s a taboo.
ZENIT: What has changed for you, regarding the methodology of this synod?
Cardinal Kasper: I think in the end there must be a general line in the Church, general criteria, but then the questions of Africa we cannot solve. There must be space also for the local bishops’ conferences to solve their problems but I’d say with Africa it’s impossible [for us to solve]. But they should not tell us too much what we have to do.
