Catholic Apologetics International - Robert Sungenis (2576 words)
Pacheco is trying to make it appear that Lefebvre's signing of Dignitatis Humanae in some way forms a contradiction to what he believed; or that Lefebvre is not really the saintly crusader he is portrayed to be by Traditionalists, since his true beliefs were exposed in his signing of Dignitatis Humanae.
Pacheco wants to be a true Catholic, he should be insisting that everyone interpret Vatican II in accord with the previous 20 ecumenical councils, which he knows did not teach that pagans have a moral right to worship false gods.
Instead, John Paul II considered the pagans already in a relationship with God through their false gods, so much so, that no one had to be concerned with saving their soul, only praying for world peace to fulfill the pope's dream of having some kind of utopian pan-religious monument before he passes away.
