Rigidity: Francis Is "Simply Wrong" - Burke

@Sancte Teotónio Adults have a hard time enduring the schlock, too. That and the ongoing press for $$$$ to support ^%$#@. Having to constantly explain why the 'good' guys aren't really good at all is a recipe for psychosis. Add in spiritual blackmail and you've got the perfect recipe for I'm-Outta-Here.

Rigidity: Francis Is "Simply Wrong" - Burke

@Koza Nutria Hmmm. Where did I state that Burke has spoken against doctrine? The point here is Burke's failure to engage those who DO speak against doctrine. He doesn't. And if he does, he does so very weakly while shaming the flock to remain in dangerous places.
It's also dangerous of you to put words into my mouth. Where did I say that NO priests are all wrong? I didn't say that. It's good …More

It's also dangerous of you to put words into my mouth. Where did I say that NO priests are all wrong? I didn't say that. It's good that you 'see' some are damaged by seminaries and that's another issue. Bad seminaries produced bad fruit.

Telling the sheep that they should remain in place and fight without any tangible weapons while a Prince of the Church sits idly talking, talking, and talking is no sign of true leadership. His performance is more disheartening than that of leftist/progressive clergy. Why? Because he's supposed to be one of the good guys. That's scary.

I'm so sick of the remain in place orders. It seems that he's more concerned about keeping the buildings than anything.

VII didn't create the Novus Ordo. It's cited as a reason, much like the devil 'made' me do it. And then there's that illusive 'spirit' of VII. Another animal entirely.

That's confirmed each and every time you did zippo against actual heresy while finger pointing to those who you may fear are actually doing more than you.

Why?

For Burke, whatever he chooses to stand up against is heresy, but what he chooses to ignore and or slam or sideline for convenience sake is no problem at all. Maybe if he'd actually address Francis directly, to his face, and cease and desist from labeling others schismatics for 'fear' of schism while the German Church does their schism thing, I'd give his 'words' more weight.

Until then.... these comments are tossed out every once in a while to uphold the facade of being aligned with Catholic tradition/teaching. Such a disappointment.

If unity were the only issue, we could all unite in the pretext that sin is now abolished by papal mandate and ALL are now considered to be baptized into the Church. Go big or go home.

Lay Catholics Are Fighting Back, Block Rock Concert In Church (Video)

The higher ups KNOW this. They're chess players of a sort, so the idea that diocese are caught unaware is unbelievable to me. The powers-that-be are either fifth columnists, intentionally destroying the Church from within, or so vacant in their perceptions as to be unfit for office.

This statement, "You schismatics ignore his ecclesiastic authority entirely. You set yourselves has his judges and equals, even when he is speaking as the head of The Church on matters of faith and morals," explains your situation perfectly.

You are ignoring the teachings of Holy Mother Church to set yourself up as the authority. Why? To feel better about the problems you pretend will evaporate as you float nonsense like, "We submit to the Pope, as the FSSP does. Following him is a different matter and that's the kind of technical distinction that's lost on you as it is with other schismatics."

You're the one negating the whole of canon law to pick and choose and pretend that you're obedient when you're not. <shrug>
