Hans Kung, Pied Noahide Piper

Benedict XVI's good friend and fellow Vatican II Peritus, Hans Kung is a member of the Noahide organization, "Root and Branch":

Hans Kung says that the Talmudic "Noahide Laws" are "a universal code of conduct" that is "valid for all human beings:"

"A code of ethics is intended to match God’s covenant with man — a minimum code of conduct based on the principle of respect for life (the theologian and doctor Albert Schweitzer took this as the very basis of ethics in general), i.e. not to commit murder and not to eat the flesh of living animals. From this code of ethics Rabbinic Judaism subsequently derived the seven Noahide Laws, or Laws of Noah which, in addition to murder and cruelty to animals, prohibited robbery, adultery, idolatry and blasphemy; they also included a positive command that justice be administered (courts established). These constitute a universal code of conduct that is valid
from the start not only for Jews, but for all human beings." ("Religion, violence and 'holy wars,'" Hans Kung)$File/irrc_858_Kung.pdf

Kung is reported to have recently been honored by Freemasons (see:Noahides) for a "lifetime of service to the craft":

Read Kung's, "Declaration Toward a Global Ethic":

According to Canadian Catholic News Service:

... [Benedict XVI and Hans Kung] agreed on the need for a global ethic which would be supported by people of different churches, religions, believers and non-believers ... (Canadian Catholic News, March 20, 2007)

This, quite simply, makes a mockery of Christ's mandate to preach the Gospel to all nations. There is only one universal ethic and that's the Gospel of Jesus Christ, not the rabbi-concocted "Noahide Laws" of the Talmud.

Next, Hans Kung will want to move
us toward a 'Declaration For A Global Religion' is amazing
how far into the twilight zone these 'emminent' theologians journey...I wonder how many of them
were actually parrish priests, who
served the spiritual needs of real

Good thing you are not judgmental, or call people whackjob - but what did come out of Vatican II was that "the seed of God's word exists in other religions." God's Spirit is in all of us, 1Thess5:23. A 'name known to no one but himself' is so every eye will see and know him in their language. Three Abrahamic religions - one God the Father.
Let Him judge, you evangelize!
