It is easy to sit here some 40 odd years later in the comfort of the grand ol' US of A where "freedom rings" behind a keyboard, having no concept of what it is like to be under a communist government.  For those of you against DH and Vatican II, I say to you, how short sighted and exceedingly arrogant you are.  . 

I should have put this in my first comment...

One of the main architects of DH was a Modernist American Jesuit who had been scolded by the Holy Office and his writings suppressed by his superior before V2.  The source of this line of thinking is deeply rooted in the U.S. system, not in those suffering under a Communist system.  If you read Fr. Murray's comments, you will see his line of thinking and his goals in working on DH speak for themselves.
