Capital Punishment: The Slippery Slope
The latest episode of the sad TV show “V II Is The Root Of The Present Crisis” deals with Capital Punishment.
Yes, Francis is imagining a parallel religion, and calls it Catholicism because he wants to con you. Yes, the Church has always supported the Capital Punishment, as do common sense and elementary sense of justice. Yes, the Papal States had capital punishment and used it.
Still, the papal heterodoxy in the matter has not begun with Francis. It has begun with JP II The FrancisSaint, who thought it appropriate to validate a dumb sociological approach to a simple matter of eternal truth end elementary justice, stating that whilst capital punishment remains in theory applicable, in practice bla bla and blablabla with modern correction methods more bla it appears difficult blablablablaaaaa.
The rape of truth begins with sociological analysis. The utter denial is merely the unavoidable consequence of this forma mentis.
What JPII either did not or would not get is that what the Church has always believed and practiced is accepted first and thoroughly understood second, not bent to the fashions of the age.
JP II represent the first generation of dissent. Francis represents the second, made more aggressive by thirty years of truth manipulation.
Alas, the TV show will go on. But remember, it started in the Sixties, not in 2013.
