Pope Francis’ biographer, Austen Ivereigh, told LaTercera.com (August 10) that an alleged “resistance” against Pope Francis includes “different cardinals,” the circle around Benedict XVI and “very rich and powerful groups in the US.”
However, Ivereigh believes that Benedict XVI himself is “very loyal” to the pope while Francis’ critics are “very well organized” and launch an attack “every month."
“These tactics are very typical of the United States and the techniques the conservatives used against Obama,” Ivereigh reveals is radical left position.
Cardinal Müller is according to him the “leader” of the “opposition”, but Ivereigh must admit, that Müller is retired and powerless.
The persistent discussion about Francis’ heresies, Ivereigh tries to stop by insisting on the “traditional respect of the papal magisterium.”
