Newspapers are reporting today that catechized Catholics disapprove of Pope Francis' shtick.
The pope’s popularity fell the most among U.S. adults who identify as conservative, with just 45 percent saying they viewed the Argentine favourably in a poll conducted from July 8-12. That was down from 72 percent who viewed him favourably in February 2014.
You start to take an inventory of the damage done to moral compasses of loved ones, the advance of communism, spiritual mayhem caused by the appointment and approval of heretics -- and it would take extraordinary effort to find a pearl in the pig pen.
The summit this week with Mayors was an absolute...nutter.
Here is a group of political leaders who are sexualizing children, committing spiritual homicides and facilitating the murder of innocents and the Pope is telling them the weather is a human being and they are the moral consciences of humanity. This is a man with custody over the moral conscience of humanity left to us by Christ: the Deposit of Faith.
Earlier this week, Fr. Lombardi made some startling statements about his own confusion. That is pretty startling. Here is a theologian with decades of communications experience admitting he can't make heads or tails out of the shtick. How would the Holy Father expect teenage children and young adults to make heads or tails out of the theological chaos?
Further, this post by Donald McClarey paints a...peculiar picture.
The papal spokesman limns a picture of a leader who doesn’t give clear directions, doesn’t communicate with his staff, and (at least in diplomatic affairs) doesn’t have a strategic vision.
“No one knows all of what he’s doing,” Lombardi says. “His personal secretary doesn’t even know. I have to call around: One person knows one part of his schedule, someone else knows another part.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Flying by the seat of our pants.
