Ideologues are totalitarians.
There is a group of hard-core ideologues grouped around Francis.
As always, these ideologues demand that you deny the evidence of your senses, including common sense, and ignore the principle of non-contradiction. It’s the alternate universe of 2+2=5. Their positions are irrational. With nearly sycophantic dedication they take everything Francis does as oracular, even the things that he gets wrong. And, if you decline to accept their zeal as your own, then their attitude and actions become like to the Red Guards of the Cultural Revolution, a New catholic Red Guard.
That said, here’s something to consider.
The last time Newman was misread this badly, a libel case ensued and he wrote a book defending his good name. I wonder what he’ll do this time around. https://t.co/2eHqXrivmR

“Restored the role of conscience”.
What is he really saying?
That’s code for “Do whatever you want!” as in reception of Holy Communion by manifest adulterers and non-Catholics who don’t accept the Church’s teachings.
That’s code for pitting conscience against the teachings of the Church on a number of important issues including contraception and abortion.
