So...........Cardinal Kasper.

Cardinal Kasper, have you forgotten Africans like St. Benedict the Black, St. Marcellinus (left Africa and went to France as a missionary), St. Perpetua and Felicity, Pope St. Victor (first African pope), and Blessed Isidore Bakanja and Blessed Annuarite Nengapeta? They and St. Charles Lwanga and his companions have a lot to teach you sir. You should listen to them.

Blessed Anuarite Nengapeta, marytr. 

Update: Cardinal Kasper denies saying anything rude about Africans in his interview. The reporter has a recording.

Is Cardinal Arnize sitting in on the synod? He has so much Fire and class. I would love to be the fly on the wall if Cardinal Kasper stated that in his presence.

Cardinal Kasper doesn't live up to his name or title. Prince of the Church. Wow.

Not to mention the GREAT St. Athansius....of course, they'd REALLY like to forget him.

On the other hand, Egypt and North Africa is perhaps not quite what he was referring to.

That said, there is a moral problem with an attitude like this:

"I think in the end there must be a general line in the Church, general criteria, but then the questions of Africa we cannot solve. There must be space also for the local bishops’ conferences to solve their problems but I’d say with Africa it’s impossible [for us to solve]. But they should not tell us too much what we have to do."

X has problems does NOT equate with X is a kind of child whom nobody needs to listen to.

Goes for African bishops AND for homeless bloggers too.
