Pope Francis: If You’re Right, Then Close The Church, Sell It Off And Go Home

Since I wrote this yesterday, I have been bothered by a couple of things that I wrote. I should not have called the pope an outright heretic. He may be spouting heresy, but I should have given him the benefit of the doubt that, in being himself, he was just trying to be “nice” to the children. I also should not have said that people should not bring their children near him or let them touch him. Perhaps, the simplicity of a child of truly orthodox and loving parents are what he needs around and with him. He is not evil and I said as much with my harsh words. I should not have called him a blithering idiot. He’s not an idiot, although he is not a clear thinker or a good speaker off-the-cuff. I also should not have recommended that he drive off a cliff.

I apologize to Pope Francis for my angry words, and to everyone who read them.

Sometimes, I say stupid things, particularly in the heat of the moment. I reacted too quickly to what he said to these children and should not have lashed out as I did but instead allowed myself to cool down and give some time to mull my writing. I still think that his comment leads to the conclusion that we don’t need the Church or Her ministers or religion, so I don’t take that back.

Pope Francis is our pope, whether we agree with him or not, whether we are outraged by what he trots out there as Catholicism or not, and whether we think he is contributing to harm to the Church or not. We can criticize what he says and does, and we should when we see that he harms the Faith or the Church. I just went too far in my hasty anger in this post.

    You’ve humbled yourself and apologized, but don’t be too hard on yourself either. The fact of the matter is: This pope is driving us all nuts! He has been a poisonous influence since day one. I pray for him-very hard to do at times-but I don’t like him. The very first time I saw him on TV I had a very uneasy feeling. He looked like an evil specter gazing quietly at the crowd.

    I can’t forgive him for the past synod and for the one planned for the future. As Cardinal Burke has said, the evil kasperian agenda should not even be considered. I am thankful that we have Cardinal Burke and other holy priests who are bracing themselves for the coming fight and getting the troops ready.

    And I’m sick of the insults coming constantly from His Ford-Focus-Humbleness. We are faithful Catholics, not self-absorbed neo-pelagian rabbit-pharisees.

    Thank you for your love for the Magisterium. God bless you!
