Welcome in the Club: Francis Calls Saint Paul "Rigid", "Traditionalist"

“Like Paul we are called to be free from the hypocrisies of the external, to be free from a religious observance that makes us rigid and inflexible, free from ambiguous links with power [sic!], and the fear of being misunderstood and attacked,” Francis said in his Saints Peter and Paul homily (June 29).

He loves to oppose form and content - as if they could be separated. Probably due to a certain senile rigidity, Francis went again on his rigidity trip insisting that Saint “Paul was freed from the religious zeal that made him fierce in upholding the traditions he had received.” In Catholic spirituality "religious zeal" is considered a virtue.

For Francis , "the formal observation of religion and the sword wielding of defence of Tradition" made Saint Paul "rigid." He is right, and as a matter of fact, Saint Paul admonishes the Thessalonians to "stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter” (2 Thess. 2:15).

At the Angelus after Mass, Francis recalled that Benedict XVI was ordained a priest 70 years ago. He called him - who frequently receives people and watches the oligarchs' TV - “the contemplative of the Vatican" and thanked him "for your witness.”

And St. Peter preferred to be rigidly and fundamentalistically killed in a pathetic act of hypocritedom instead of signing a peaceful & safeful declaration in Assisi or the certain town in Arabia.

Pope Benedict XVI, 24 April 2005.
"One of the basic characteristics of a shepherd must be to love the people entrusted to him, even as he loves Christ whom he serves. “Feed my sheep”, says Christ to Peter, and now, at this moment, he says it to me as well. Feeding means loving, and loving also means being ready to suffer. Loving means giving the sheep what is truly good, the nourishment of God’s truth, of God’s word, the nourishment of his presence, which he gives us in the Blessed Sacrament. My dear friends – at this moment I can only say: pray for me, that I may learn to love the Lord more and more. Pray for me, that I may learn to love his flock more and more – in other words, you, the holy Church, each one of you and all of you together. Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves. Let us pray for one another, that the Lord will carry us and that we will learn to carry one another."

He can't even preach about St Paul without pushing his own modernist agenda.

“And we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the tradition which they have received of us." Saint Paul

Despite his protestations to the contrary, the pope is an ideologue. And his ideology is much inclined to caricature those who disagree with him. He is an out of touch 1970s Jesuit
Defeat Modernism
I pray for Anti-Pope Benedict XVI's conversion to the True Faith. I pray he repents before he dies for the untold souls who have gone to Hell because of his Modernist Heretical teachings and bad example. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for his conversion now and at the hour of his death. Amen.
