Diocese of Linz hits out at Father Wagner

General Vicar Severin Lederhilger says, "Today's theology regards it as totally inappropriate and irresponsible to interpret natural disasters as God's punishment for the immoral behavior of the victims".

Cathcon suggests that Father Lederhilger should go away and read his Bible, a practice commended by the Second Vatican Council. One will be interested in his exegesis of certain passages. Hopefully the Bible is a higher authority for him than the documents of Vatican II.

Jeremias 25:12
And when the seventy years shall be expired, I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans: and I will make it perpetual desolations.

Never presume on the mercy of the Lord!
