It appears Francis spoke in front of an audience and, for the first time in many months, managed not to say anything unCatholic.
I am not surprised. The man is clearly lazy. So lazy, in fact, that he does not even bother to remember today what he said yesterday (cue the constant praise of tolerance, building bridges and the like and the persistent insults to everyone he does not like).
One who is so lazy that he does not care for a modicum of coherence will also be too lazy, at times, to insert some “off the cuff” heretical comment in the speeches written for him. He must have thought he would just go through the text and be done with it. Yerba Mate awaits.
This is the only way we get an orthodox Pope this day: when he can't be bothered to be unorthodox. In Francis orthodoxy is not a feature, it's a bug.
I wish him salvation. But I wish that the Church can be freed of this scourge soon, too.
After one entire (work) day of feverish expectation, the news has just reached me that Justice Kennedy will n ot retire… Yet.
However, the fact that he had his 30 years celebration brought forward one year seems to indicate that he will still resign at some point before next June, hopefully at the end of Summer.
It does not have to be all bad. Three or four more months of Trumpism will help our cause anyway, and will strengthen the resolve of the Senate to give the entire Western civilisation another decent judge. In the meantime, it is clear Gorsuch is all we hoped for, and possibly some more.
My childish enthusiasm and excitement of the entire day has gone. I also am under no illusion that, when Kennedy resigns, his replacement will be an epic battle. But I wanted this fight, and I will now have to wait.
