Liberals, living in Nephelokokkygia, think that Pope Francis is “teachable“. When he confounds their expectations and does something Catholic, they say, “He’ll come around.” When he makes sharp negative remarks about radical feminists, they respond, ”We’ll guide him him.”
And then it came to pass that Pope Francis excommunicated a now former priest, Greg Reynolds, for his heretical view on the ordination of women, and his promotion of same-sex acts and for his desecration of the Eucharist.
I wrote about this HERE.
I wanted to give the story a few days to disseminate and for the impact of it to settle in.
We now have to ask…
Where’s the liberal outrage? Where is the criticism of Francis?
When Pope Benedict exercised his proper role to remove a malfeasant bishop or impose medicinal censures, apoplectic liberals threw a spittle-flecked nutty.
“MEDIEVAL!”, they screamed. “OLD WHITE MALE OPPRESSOR!”, they howled. “VATICAN II!”, the sputtered. ”MEANIE!” they whined.
But that was Benedict.
Days after the world learned of the excommunication by Francis – the fluffiest and most wonderfullest Pope ehvur and the first who ever kissed a baby – of a liberal model priest because of things dear to the liberal Left, there still no reaction from the liberal catholic Left.
What gives? When Francis does exactly what Benedict did and would have done, is not Francis also a medieval Vatican II hating patriarchal white oppressive mean old meanie?
Where are the nuns? Why aren’t they outraged by Francis’ reaffirmation of what John Paul II and Benedict affirmed? Where are the pro-abortion feminazis? Where is the homosexual lobby? Where are the theology professors?
And where-oh-where is Sr. Joan?
Nothing? Not a peep? No outrage?
Do they all still believe – together with their darling, the disgraced Sr. Margaret Farley, RSM, – that Pope Francis is “teachable”?
