Everything online has been, is, and will be about the Synod...
I suppose it's something to write about and get passionate about - but I don't see how all the arguing and name calling and fear mongering accomplishes anything? Phantom fears. How can worrying and complaining about something that hasn't even happened yet be profitable? "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
Of course, it really is our business to discuss it - especially since "there is a sensum fidelium" worth considering. Cardinal Kasper pointed that out in his interview.
Contrary to what his critics have been saying, I think Cardinal Kasper actually makes sense.
“Everyone is free to express their own opinion, that's not a problem for me. The Pope wanted an open debate and I think that this is something new and healthy, which is very helpful for the Church.” - Cardinal Kasper Interview, CNA
Although he wasn't happy about the book written by the five Cardinals. It seems to me that book, zealously promoted by Fr. Z, would come under the heading 'free and open debate'.
One thing the Synod will most definitely have to address is the problem of homsexualism, same sex marriage, gender ideology, and other screwed up concepts aiding and abetting the destruction of the family.
“Maybe I was imprudent. But many people are saying so,
you can hear it in the streets every day.
I don't want to judge anyone,
but it is obvious that there are people who are not
totally in agreement with this Pope,
something that is not new and already happened
during the Second Vatican Council,
when many where against the aggiornamento
of John XXIII and Paul VI.” - Kasper
