PBS on the Radical Nuns.
#21
Well, I skimmed the Fr. Harrison letter.  He agrees:
Quote: Is salvation possible for those who die not just as non-Catholics, but as non-Christians? That is, can someone reach eternal life who dies without any explicit belief in Jesus Christ as God and Savior?  While these modern magisterial documents stop short of answering this question clearly, it cannot be denied that what they say, in conjunction with what they significantly fail to say, leans in the direction of an affirmative answer. However, after much study and reflection, I myself have come to think – in accord with the teaching of St. Thomas – that the correct answer to this question must be negative. And Leonard Feeney of course agreed with the Angelic Doctor on that point.

So as I stated, and your article states, the Catechism leaves out the hippo in the bathtub.  That those who do not have Faith in Jesus Christ are damned.  As Fr. Harrison says, these modern fallible writings lean towards the Pelagian heresy.  BUT, they stop short.

So we have come full circle. 
Quote: I think it is more scandalous that this rag CAN be used as evidence that dogmatic teaching has changed.  The converse is also true.  Hence the need to rid ourselves of this ambiguous rag.
