Hans Kung and the Vatican

One of my favorite theologians, Hans Kung, has criticized the Pope on the Anglican issue, See http://www.catholicreview.org/subpages/storyworldnew-new.aspx?action=7087, and the Vatican has fired back. See http://blog.beliefnet.com/news/2009/11/vatican-newspaper-denounces-sw.php. Although I ordinarily think that claims of Catholic bias and Catholic victimization are exaggerated (and the rhetoric of victimization is similarly used by many religious groups without sturdy foundation (as my colleague Mike Dorf has recently observed)- I think some of the nonetheless interesting work of Stephen Carter falls into the category of exaggerating victimization), some of the comments defending Kung at beliefnet are way over the top and give me pause.
