Make A Mess
Another week begins, and something tells me before it has finished the world will be shocked again at some new outrageous statement of the Unholy Father.
My take on the man is very simple: he has no faith, no fear of the Lord, nothing Catholic in him. He hates the Church and the good Catholics in her. Unless you stink as he does, he will hate and insult you. If you are a heretic, a pervert, or a public atheist he will like you all right. But woe you count your rosary, and believe in Absolute Truth.
Therefore, I think the man's pontificate can be safely framed within the following two statements:
1. He has not dared yet to officially proclaim heresy and sacrilege, because he is afraid of the consequences.
2. There is nothing he won't do to damage the Church you know and love – absolutely nothing excluded – if he thinks he'll get away with it.
If this is true – and I am pretty sure it is – it follows that the best way to do our job of defending the Church – in our own little sphere of influence – is to… make a mess.
Francis must be vocally criticised at every step. Each one of his idiotic or blasphemous or heretical or plain disquieting statement (next time I hear again about smelling of sheep I'll hope someone throws an entire bucket of ovine excrements on him, just in order to help him in his pious desire) must be harshly condemned. Not, mind, in that polite way that makes you feel good with yourself whilst no one else notices; rather, in that far less polite way that makes the reader realise we never had anything like this one, and he must realise this Pope is the enemy of everything that is clean, honest and pure.
Make a mess. Be vocal. Let your scandal be heard up to the sky. Ask that our bishops and cardinals shame him or threaten to depose him. Do your part in creating a climate of active and loud resistance to this FrancisRevolution. Bury this papacy in mockery and ridicule. This is all we can do. Heretics don't burn at the stake nowadays.
The more the Pope is publicly and vocally criticised, the less probable it is that the man will do something very officially heretical.
Conversely, the more the Pope can rely on nothing more than polite disagreements and cries of “I do not understand what the Pope is doing” every time he lets another bomb explode under the chair of the Church, the more probable it is that he will promote and proclaim sacrilege very publicly, thinking that after a week or two of mild excitement everyone will fall into line, and he will have his FrancisRevolution as the usual “c”atholic sites explain to us that nothing has changed, but isn't it wonderful how Francis is changing everything.
Think about it.
Make a mess.
