Francis, The PR Man?

With a brilliant deception, Francis poses as friend of faggot priests.

You might – or not, as the case may be – think at times this Papacy follows a double railtrack strategy: Francis expresses himself in a vague but popular way, whilst the likes of Mueller keep thing in check and within the boundaries of orthodoxy (say: communion for public adulterers, or Medjugorje).

Let us see the implications of this, and whether this is a realistic scenario.

If this is a strategy, then it clearly is a fully deceitful, utterly Jesuitical one. It means that, like Scientology, the Church lures people with an easy message, and gives them the real content once the targets are “hooked” to the dream they have been sold. The “modernising” Francis as the hook, and the – for Bergoglio's standards; I'd still send him the Inquisition, and the real one at that – “orthodox” and “precise” Mueller as the fisher does not work as a theory, because it goes against the basic principle of Christianity, based on a God who cannot deceive and cannot be deceived. Francis represents the Church as Christ's Vicar on earth. He will decide on how the Church reflects Truth. If he decides not to speak the truth, no amount of work made by his lieutenant – provided they are good enough, which by Mueller is most certainly not the case – will ever even begin to repair the damage, nor will it ever justify the initial deception.

If, therefore, you share the above mentioned position, you must believe that at the present time the Church's evangelisation strategy is based on a huge lie, on marketing built over the fundamental falsehood that the Pope willingly promotes a certain (modern, pleasant, unthreatening, hip) idea of the church so that the public may buy the ticket and enter the circus tent, where Mueller performs the lion-taming.

The second consideration is whether this is a realistic proposition. Francis has appointed a “gang of eight” in order to examine a more or less radical reform of how the Church is run, and some of them have already abandoned themselves to savage talk. He commits liturgical abuses without thinking twice. He has homosexuals and sluttish women in his entourage. He has a penchant for heretical talk. He mocks even those who pray for him. He says and repeats that atheists can be saved if they follow their conscience. This is not the behaviour of a sleek marketing man. Clearly, there is an ideology behind the behaviour and clearly, the behaviour is program itself rather than just a pleasant facade to lure people into… orthodoxy.

I do not buy the one with the sleek marketing man working in tandem with the smart educator. The facts I have been observing rather speak for an utter Modernist Pope whose heresies are, in part, kept in check by people less overtly heretical than him.

I would so much like to think otherwise, but that's what it is. Let Francis and his minions and helpers deceive the simple. As for myself, if it walks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, I will continue to call it a duck.

  1. Mundabor,

    I think you put your finger on the most troubling aspect of the entire VII project: the outright and abject dishonesty. For a council that did not set out any new dogma, you’d never know by looking at the new church. And it is this dishonesty that is at the root of the demolition of the Faith that we have witnessed over the last 50 years. The Great Chastizement, indeed.

  2. PS. No wonder all they want to talk about is Mercy, but none dare speak of Justice.

  3. The cardinals who voted for him must surely have known what they were getting. It’s not as if Bergoglio appeared from nowhere.

    What does his election tell us about the true state of the Catholic Church?

  4. Surely Mundabor would be among the first to acknowledge that the balance of power in the developed world lies with the MSM whose antipathy to all things Catholic is legend. There is no seeming end run around these bigoted, powerful predators. Could a wily Jesuitical mind have determined a careful end-run experiment in media manipulation might open pathways for the millions of Catholics who have left the faith? Or turn the heads of those who have only known MSM-driven disdain for the Church? If this is the case, agree or disagree, those who otherwise might have continued in their anger may have their hearts softened and consider that Jesus Christ is the only answer to all our ills. Watch, wait – and especially continue to pray.
