Cardinal Walter Brandmüller Calls Working Amazonian Synod Document Heretical!

I have been reading reactions over the past week or so to the working document, or the (Instrumentum Laboris) for the October 2019 Pan-Amazonian synod. Most Catholics who actually believe what the Church teaches about paganism and modernism have been very critical of the document. Some of the most striking tones of the document are the one praising witchdoctors and the like as being holy men who unlike westerners take care of the environment. There is also references to changing doctrine and finding a place in the Church hierarchy for women, and much more which all hit high on the heresy meter. For a change a Cardinal has come out and called this working document heretical. Cardinal Walter Brandmüller has done what few Cardinals other than Cardinal Burke have done, and that is call a spade a spade. Check out the entire document here. Things are going to heat up as we head towards this diabolical synod. 

It is to be stated now with insistence that the Instrumentum Laboris contradicts the binding teaching of the Church in decisive points and thus has to be qualified as heretical.
Inasmuch as even the fact of Divine Revelation is here being questioned, or misunderstood, one also now has to speak, additionally, of apostasy. 
This is even more justified in light of the fact that the Instrumentum Laboris uses a purely immanentist notion of religion and that it considers religion as the result and form of expression of man's own spiritual self-experience. The use of Christian words and notions cannot conceal that these are being merely used as empty words, despite their original meaning.
The Instrumentum Laboris for the Amazon Synod constitutes an attack on the foundations of the Faith,  and in a way that has not heretofore been thought possible. Thus it must be rejected with all decisiveness. (Cardinal Walter Brandmüller)
