Cardinal Wuerl thinks its just a small group of Catholics speaking out against heresy in Amoris Laetitiae.
I think we have to put this into perspective. For my perspective, the reaction you are speaking about is relatively focused, it is not a very large group, and it certainly isn’t reflected in the hierarchy of the Church, and I don’t see it reflected among most of the priests. So in a way, that’s a rather concentrated and in a certain sense esoteric discussion
There is nothing 'esoteric' about the discussion. Interesting he chose that word. In context, it seems he was conveying the small amount of people who managed to educate themselves through their fifty-year period of their starvation of catechesis.
While true faithful priests and bishops aren't speaking out in the public square, that doesn't mean they don't recognize and resent the Holy Father's introduction of heresy. It means they have eyes to see that the pope crushes the vocation of those speaking out and they are practicing prudence.
He's in the network of gay priests, bishops and Cardinals who are tickled pink Pope Francis is painting sins against the Sixth Commandment as virtuous. He's out of the loop.
When you hear the lavender mafia talk like this, it illustrates that their belief that Pope Francis is changing the de facto schism that has existed since "Vatican II" to a de jure schism.
I think that's accurate.
But I think they believe Jorge Bergolio will retain the Chair of Peter and slip the counterfeit church underneath it.
We'll see about that. They may want to brush up on what happened to Goliath.
