Weigel replies to Hans Küng

In the journal First Things, George Weigel has written a powerful rebuttal of Hans Küng's recent letter to the Bishops attacking Pope Benedict, which was published in the Irish Times. See: An Open Letter to Hans Küng

Weigel says that Küng's letter:
[...] set new standards for that distinctive form of hatred known as odium theologicum and for mean-spirited condemnation of an old friend who had, on his rise to the papacy, been generous to you while encouraging aspects of your current work.
He also rebuts Küng's charges competently one by one and calls upon him to apologise.
