At least the good cardinal Muller acknowledges and states that Benedict’s conduct in 2013 caused and still causes mental trauma for Catholics.
In addition he asks for theological clarity concerning the relationship between Benedict and his putative successor.
Muller also upholds the teaching concerning no Holy Communion for practising adulterers.
Interesting times ahead.

Not sure what you mean by theological clarity re the relationship between the the two men. I do think, however, that the authority from jurisdiction of a bishop who is emeritus is foggy at best.

It is another VatII/post VatII idea that lacked proper consideration.

If you read the letter from the SCDF it says there must not be Communion given to those who were married validly, divorced, then married in a civil ceremony. The pope did something else: He basically turned the question of the validity of th marriage to the individual conscience. I disagree with this approach, but it's not the same as what you seem to think

To Dr Bobus. We may on the same page.Thank you.
Benedict still speaks in Peters name.

TO DR BOBUS WHO DOES NOT WISH TO BE CONTACTED.
Cardinal Muller has the authority of a catholic bishop and a member of the (discredited) college of cardinals.
He can act by bringing to the attention of the faithful that bergoglio aka francis is not a pope anymore having been excommunicated for formal heresy.
Dr Bobus
Maybe he thinks that Francis is the pope.
Thors Catholic Hammer
Perhaps he does. But is he right in thinking that.?
For any person to think that francis is a pope would mean accepting an individual who openly rejects the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist and many of His core teachings.
Dr Bobus
Act? With what authority?
Lalanz
The same God given authority you and I have as Catholics to act physically when we see the seat of leadership stolen by a devil. In others words, street authority, we need to form a militant group and pull Francis out of Vatican by his mouth....
Lalanz
How can one sit back and watch our beloved church get destroyed? These cardinals are going to hell for not acting...all talk no action...
Lalanz
Stop pointing the finger, and act, we need action action action action...please lord send us bishops with back bone....
