Conservative websites are abuzz with acute concern over the appointment. The flash point seems to be the Bishop's affection for liberation theology. In response, others are quite dismissive of any misgivings over anything the Pope does or anyone he appoints. I was therefore (happily) surprised to read Fr. Baker's happy endorsement of Müller's book on priesthood. A later piece here on his theology (and where it might trigger conservative unease) would be helpful. Would it be appropriate? I don't see why not.

As an addendum to my comment, CatholicCulture.org reports, "Since his name began circulating months ago as a likely prefect for the CDF, he has come under critical scrutiny from traditionalist Catholics, who have paid special notice to his close friendship with Father Gustavo Gutierrez, a leading proponent of liberation theology." But they continue, "On the other hand, the radical theologian Hans Küng described his appointment as a 'catastrophe.'"

My faith in the Pope is thus bolstered. LOL.
