You really have to wonder what world this man is living in.
Do you think they're hiding the newspapers and blogs from him?
Hey, I've been involved in the front line battle for a couple of decades and can say with absolute certainty, the culture wars inside of the Church have never been more turbulent than under the reign of Pope Francis.
They really know how to make a smooch to the kuran looks like a kumbaya moment!
Seriously, where is he getting his news from? There isn't a respected sound apostolate I am aware of that isn't throwing rotting tomatoes at them.
Well-respected, well-heeled theologians who would in the past forbear criticizing a bishop (much less a Pope), are openly admitting their disgust and loss of confidence and trust in the hierarchy - not only in the US but also the Romans. With a handful of exceptions (and we all know who they are!).
I guess they think we're going to join the parade and let our children and grandchildren, people we love, embrace apostasy and belly up to sacrilegious communion and communism without catastrophic resistance. Good luck with that!
They are incapable of seeing the writing on the wall.
Cardinal Dolan also stated - get this - Pope Francis "would not be associated with any one ideological camp".
Ideological camp is the new code word for the Magisterium.
According to Cardinal Dolan, Pope Francis doesn't want to be associated with fidelity to the teachings of the Church. Sadly, the evidence to discredit that assertion is pretty flimsy.
I would have thought the blood of the martyrs would help their spines but it seems to me, our mass martyrdom has only made them more craven.
Maybe they're getting their cues from their fearless leader Obama?
Mr. President, what is your position on the beheadings?
Obama: My position on the beheadings is, I be heading to the golf course.
Somebody should fed ex the latest Vortex to Cardinal Dolan with a question: DOES THIS LOOK LIKE CLOSURE TO YOU?
