Vatican ex-doctrine chief pens manifesto amid pope criticism  (1)(2)

VATICAN CITY (AP) - The Vatican's former doctrine chief - Cardinal Gerhard Mueller - has penned a "manifesto of faith" to remind Catholics of basic tenets of belief amid what he says is "growing confusion" in the church today.

Cardinal Gerhard Mueller didn't name Pope Francis in his four-page manifesto, released late Friday. But the document was nevertheless a clear manifestation of conservative criticism of Francis' emphasis on mercy and accompaniment versus a focus on repeating Catholic morals and doctrine during the previous two papacies.

Mueller wrote that a pastor's failure to teach Catholic truths was the greatest deception - "It is the fraud of the anti-Christ."


Mueller's manifesto carries the date of Feb. 10 - the eve of the sixth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI's historic announcement that he would resign. Many conservatives are nostalgic for the doctrinal clarity and certainty of Benedict's reign.

It was published after Francis penned a joint declaration of "fraternity" with a prominent Muslim imam during his recent trip to the United Arab Emirates. Some conservatives say the document's claim that the pluralism of religions is "willed by God" muddies Catholic belief about the centrality of Christ. Francis has defended the document as doctrinally sound.
