Socialism, Sí; Küng, No

Molnar, Thomas
August 1982
National Review;8/20/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 16, p1022
The article focuses on the political changes in the official Vatican policy. The Catholic Church has withdrawn its alliance with liberal bourgeois capitalism and has accepted socialism in turn. The Catholic Church is adopting a post-modern outlook with a friendly approach to the Third World. The Church in order to rapidly readjust is forging new friendships and initiating dialogues with groups and schools of thought which is perceived by the Church as representative of the new world. The two major world movements currently affecting the Church are the socialist-ecclesiastical renewal and the new ideology. The Church believes that by extending recognition to socialism, integration of socialism with the evangelical message is possible.
