In this broadcast the Viennese Cathedral Pastor Toni Faber was given the opportunity, not just to be defiant of the teaching of Holy Church or to be coquettish with the zeitgeist, but in complete meekness and compliance to Freemasonry.
"That can damage your career!"
Then we learn (rom 6:40), that the Viennese Cathedral Pastor has published a dissertation "Freemason and Church", which Cardinal Koenig had rejected with the following words: "Know this, young man: let this lay. This can only damage your future, your career. Let it lay."
At the latest as to the question, what the Church actually has against Freemasonry, the otherwise generally unaccomodating to the teachings of Holy Church Cathedral Pastor: The Church is supposed to have "Thank God, developed further" (Faber) and in Codex Iuris canonici of 1983 no longer threatens excommunication for Freemasonry.
In this anti-Roman/anti-Catholic groove of Faber, continued then the former Grand Master of the Austrian brothers of the apron (Masons wear ceremonial aprons), Micheal Kraus: a Catholic may deplore Freemasonry, that in a so-called interpretation of the former Cardinal Ratzinger returns a certain ambiguity, if it is now possibly lives in serious sin and put in a unpleasant situation with the Church? That was never made completely clear, insisted the Freemasonic Diabolos, who would like to load the guilt of Freemasonry on Holy Church.
With great verve, the ever erroneous working Viennese Cathedral Pastor continued in the groove of the Freemason: "If we follow according to Catholic law, there is [Indicative!] no excommunication there, if we then follow the former Cardinal Prefect of the CDF, then it would [Subjunctive]. A certain ambiguity, which the Holy Father, Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict XVI., has also not clarified." (at 11:45)
Catholic Minority Among the Freemasons
And Michael Kraus is more precise: "That this conflict is a part of the past, which was exhausting for both sides, and that in today's situation, it's clear that one can live very well with the status quo. Completely well because the Catholic, who belongs to Freemasonry -- it's not a majority, it's certainly a minority --, they are not completely satisfied with the status quo, as one could be satisfied, if one has heard what Herr Cathedral Pastor has just outlined. Catholics are not completely satisfied with the status quo." [Thank God for that!]
How can Catholics be upright, if they don't subject themselves to the teachings of Holy Church?
The Gist of the Matter: Father Fabers' Contact with Freemasonry
Faber continues: "I personally know many Freemasons, who are convinced Catholics, who also work in the Catholic Church, but also offer their contribution with the Lodge, to work in it. And I believe with so many people of good will, who can be found among the Freemasons, we could in the main, work for the common good for Austria."
