Cardinal Schönborn is either mistaken or is a manipulative liar!

According to reports on OnePeter5, Cardinal Schönborn has stated that Amoris Laetitia is "binding doctrine." 

In the actual document, Francis, Bishop of Rome, or someone on his behalf, writes:

Since “time is greater than space”, I would make it clear that not all discussions of doctrinal, moral or pastoral issues need to be settled by interventions of the magisterium. Unity of teaching and practice is certainly necessary in the Church, but this does not preclude various ways of interpreting some aspects of that teaching or drawing certain consequences from it.

It is then perhaps this paragraph of Francis that Raymond Cardinal Burke has used to state that the document is not magisterial. In fact, Francis says it is not.

In addition to being a liturgical nincompoop, the Cardinal from Vienna is either deluded, mistaken or a liar.

"time is greater than space" what does this even mean??

space is greater than time.... the universe is 13 billion years old but 40 billion light years wide thanks to the expansion of space

Round 2 of the Amoris Laetitia "is/isn't Magisterial" debate.

During round 1, Rorate Caeli represented a segment of Traditionalists who disputed Cardinal Burke's claim in question. Rorate Caeli countered Cardinal Burke's understanding of AL's authority with the following from a "wise -- and very informed -- holy priest who felt compelled to speak out":

Amoris Laetitia is "non-magisterial"? Not so fast...

"So by this standard, one could hardly dismiss Amoris Laetitia as “non-magisterial” or refuse “to give it assent of the intellect.”

"And, indeed, Francis himself has stated that his public statements, including his apostolic exhortations, are “magisterium.”

"So, whatever other thorny issues the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia may raise, one thing at least is clear: It was indeed intended as at least authentic papal magisterium, to which Catholics normally would be bound to give assent of the intellect."

Vox you say-- In addition to being a liturgical nincompoop, the Cardinal from Vienna is either deluded, mistaken or a liar.
It is obvious that he is all of the above!

Ok now the next question is, if this clown was the one who drafted the 1994 Catechism, can we still trust it?

No matter what qualifications Cardinal Schönborn holds, he is not going to use them for the furtherance of Christ's Church on earth as he is a true Modernist. All of our Hierarchy are embroiled in this ideology & that is why none of them to date has shown any true responsibility for the souls in their care by coming forward & denouncing PF's pastoral teachings which have now become Binding Doctrine.

I contacted several physicists and astronomers and they all stated unequivocally that the Cardinal is not stating an Infallible fact.
The group of astronomers consulted made clear that it is a hugely debated topic as to which is larger space or time.
I think the Germanic Cardinal should stick to his stock and trade career in Liturgical Novelties and catechism based casuistry.
