04Dec Doubting or dissenting Cardinals?

Michael Sean Winters writes in the National Catholic Reporter about the fact that "Cardinals Brandmüller, Burke, Caffarra and Meisner decided to publish their letter ........ openly challenging the pope to clarify parts of Amoris Laetitia that they find to be a source of confusion."
He concludes with the strong opinion that 'to publicly voice doubts about the magisterial teaching of the church is not something a cardinal should be doing or, if he does, he should have the decency to include his red hat with the submission of his dubia."
