Longtime readers here know that I am a huge fan of Michael Voris. I love his work, bravado and zeal for the house of the Lord.
The overwhelming majority of Catholic men are weak. They are weak in our parishes, our apostolates, our educational institutions and evangelization.
That overwhelming majority of weak men have been overcome by a tiny group of fringe secular social engineers.
Michael Voris is a leader.
It is fair to say that we have a problem on our hands with Pope Francis. The problem is highly exaggerated with the Pope's off the cuff style, translation issues and agendas, but there is a problem. I am sorry to say it.
And, it isn't a little problem.
Marriage is indissoluble.
Consequently, unless people living together are willing to live as celibates, there is no way to receive Communion.
There's no Sacrament of Confession without the firm promise to make the changes necessary to remain in a state of Grace - which can never be done so long as one is married to another person canonically.
The fact that Pope Francis selected Kasper to wind up his see of Bishops, causing the head of the CDF to take a position against the Pope Francis show, solidifies the irrefutable problem we have on our hands.
Pope Francis has also tipped his hand with THIS.
Again, I do not believe the problem is is bad as it is being caricatured in some places. But reasonable and prudent people must come to Jesus on the fact that there is a problem with execution.
I am in full agreement with Louie that if Michael does not wish to or feel called to speak openly about what we all know is a problem, that is his call but he ought not to go Mark Shea on the people who have the fortitude to speak the truth where it hurts the most.
