Cardinal Martini Favours Sodomite Unions
First of all, my dear reader, ensure that you are calm and relaxed. Then consider going in the kitchen and preparing a good camomile. Valerian drops will also do, I think.
When you are in such way prepared for what I am going to point out to, you may want to say a Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. After that, if you really feel ready, click here, where you will be able to see with your eyes that the smoke of Satan, far from merely finding a way true a fissure of the Church, has been smoking out many an important room within the place for some considerable time.
I will not repeat the arguments against the latest blasphemous and heathenish monstrosity of the old Cardinal. I do not think that having Parkinson’s disease can be an extenuating circumstance. Whilst Parkinson’s disease can go together with dementia, a demented former Cardinal does not get his books published. Although in this case “demented” might seem appropriate, as the Cardinal talks like one who has, literally, lost his mind.Only he hasn’t. Soul, more likely.
You will read in the brilliant blog post the well-exposed considerations, about which I have written several times, based on which the Cardinal can be said firmly in the hands of Satan. I think of the times when one could have landed on the stake for doctrines like that, and wonder whether our society is really so civilised as we think, or merely weak and stupid. Very weak, and very stupid.
You can read the considerations of the case over there. here, I would like to make a couple of ancillary considerations:
1) This man is rumoured to have been papabile. I do not think he ever was, firstly because the Holy Ghost does not allow such catastrophes and secondly because after the tragedy of Paul VI the Popes have all been clearly more conservative than Martini by any conceivable standard. Still, if it is true that the man managed to coagulate around him the support of the liberal wing, it tells you everything you need to know about how serious the situation within the Vatican is.
2) I keep reading around readers – good souls in perfect good faith, I imagine – whose only approach to the SSPX-Vatican controversy is that the SSPX must “submit” to the Vatican or, even, to “Vatican II”. It is basically like saying that if her mother moves in a brothel, an obedient daughter will follow her over there because this gives plenty of opportunities for conversions, whereas the daughter who stays out and keeps saying her mother to be reasonable and get out of the place is the disobedient, rebellious one.
3) This is rather strong tobacco, as Martini was in his day more influential than our Archbishop Vincent “Quisling” Nichols will ever be, and his book will most certainly get the echo it does not deserve. One would think the Pope would immediately intervene and force him to immediate abiura; isn’t it? I mean, this will certainly happen, right? Right?
Truly, the Church has no need whatever of external enemies.Those inside are already doing an excellent job.
