Küng’s Birthday Celebrations

Anja and I had a great time yesterday at Küng's birthday celebrations. Particularly memorable was Karl-Josef Kuschel's speech - it was simply electrifying, his examination of Küng's theology inspiring, and his wit, er, funny.

I've uploaded an amusing bit of that speech to Youtube tonight, where he speaks about some of the amusing artistic representations of Küng and his relations with the Vatican (see below).

I also videoed Küng's entire 'thank you' speech, which I may upload to Youtube if people are interested. But I'm a little reluctant to at the moment as uploading takes flippin ages, and the file is over 200 MB!

What a hilarious set of cartoons underlined by the speaker's comments. Just the sort of levity to set one sort of balanced tone for such a birthday of such a creator, believer and instigator of new thought...and thougths for us all for the future

I can't believe how much you aged between the phot on the right and the photo on the left. How much did you have to drink?!

Hi Anon, the whole speach is online, so a friend just told me - I'll post it soon.

Response 1 to Steven: *hic*

Response 2 to Steven: *bursts into tears because of destruction of tender self-image*
