Traditionalists call Francis a heretic

More traditionalist stupidity on display

Several dozen tradition-minded Roman Catholic theologians, priests and academics have formally accused Pope Francis of spreading heresy with his 2016 opening to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics.

In a 25-page letter delivered to Francis last month and provided Saturday to The Associated Press, the 62 signatories issued a "filial correction" to the pope a measure they said hadn't been employed since the 14th century.

The letter accused Francis of propagating seven heretical positions concerning marriage, moral life and the sacraments with his 2016 document "The Joy of Love" and subsequent "acts, words and omissions."

None of the signatories of the new letter is a cardinal, and the highest-ranking churchman listed is actually someone whose organization has no legal standing in the Catholic Church: Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior of the breakaway Society of St. Pius X. Several other signatories are well-known admirers of the old Latin Mass which Fellay's followers celebrate.

4. Who's calling whom a heretic?

Schismatics can't afford to call Christ's vicar on earth a heretic. Those Lefevrites need to take a long, hard look in the mirror before they call any Catholic a heretic.

6. Yeah, Cafeteria Catholic is the first things they like to toss at anyone to the left of Torquemada

 

Even back when JP II or Benedict were in charge with a lot of these people it was their way or the highway all while they were ignoring so many church teachings. And meanwhile they castigated anyone who didn't believe and obey everything they said 150%.

5. Conservative Catholics have never cared for Francis.

You know, the original one. Too much of a hippy. Said the members of the clergy should lead a frugal life and help the poor. That's no fun!

7. They're long on conservative and short on Catholic

They're just like their RW evangelical counterparts: holier than thou Pharisees who think God died and left them in charge.
