These are not just opinions. We are talking about the teachings of the Church. For example, the opinion that Hell doesn't exist is not as valid as the opinion that it does. Also, I am not threatening anyone with hellfire. Again that is a misrepresentation of my position. Was Our Lady "threatening hellfire" when she let the world know that Hell existed by showing the children at Fatima? No. She was warning people. That is all I am doing. Words have effects. They are not just meaningless blather. Making a statement like the Cardinal made is dangerous to souls. I am not judging his inner intentions. I am not saying he did it because he hates people. I am sure he was trying to be merciful. That doesn't make it any less dangerous a statement though.
