Rabbi David Rosen, who heads the American Jewish Committee’s interreligious affairs office and is a veteran of Catholic-Jewish dialogue, said he was worried about the Vatican’s gesture [towards the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X] and awaited further clarification.
“If ‘Nostra Aetate’ and ‘Lumen Gentium’ (another Vatican II document) are not considered fundamental doctrines of the Church, and it is possible to question them without challenging the authority of the church, then we (and not just Jewish-Catholic relations) are in for a very rough ride ahead,” he said in an email. (“Jews worried by Vatican gesture to traditionalists,” Nicole Winfield, Associated Press, September 16, 2011)
Rabbi David Rosen of the ‘American’ ‘Jewish’ Committee wants Catholics to submit to the Vatican II document, Nostra Aetate as if it was “fundamental doctrine of the Church” (on par with the Apostles’ Creed) because the ‘American’ ‘Jewish’ Committee, via Rabbi Abraham Heschel, co-wrote Nostra Aetate HERE.
In keeping with Jesus’ teaching of Matthew 16;6,11-12 to beware the doctrine of the Pharisees, I reject the doctrines of the AJC and Rabbi David Rosen who self-identifies as a proud Pharisee HERE and I pray that every Christian does the same.
