Bishop Sanborn responds to the "rupture theology" article

Btw, what was Fr. Joseph Ratzinger's "context"?

The last chapter of the book he speaks about why he is still in the Church, why he is still a Christian despite all the scandals and human foibles in the Church.  I have not read the entire book but I plan to.  I just finished Faith and the Future by him.  Now I am reading Introduction to Christianity.  What makes his thought unique among Catholic theologians, particularly when you read his books, is because he is not afraid to ask questions about the Faith.  Why do we believe what we believe?  I think that question must be answered by every Catholic.  We are not puppets, we are not robots.  If the Truth is the Truth than it can withstand questions by someone like me and even someone as wise as our Pope. 

I believe, Ratzinger's context, the manner in which he asks questions, was and perhaps still is, heavily influenced by the great German physicists who came out of the early 20th century.
