I’m deeply conscious of not wishing to upset our Knight of the Round Table, so Inde-fati-gable, Amfortas and his fine defence of Catholicism:
… in which he points out that a true Catholic is the ordinary Catholic – you, me, him – though how he, an actual real K-nigget, can call himself “lay” is beyond my ken, you ken.
Never mind, the point is that it is not Rome which is the Catholic church per se but the people at the base of it.
Well yes, that is the case with the protestants too. The issue is the Synod and in Catholicism – Rome and the rest of the corrupt.
He points out this Magisterium thingy which I gather is the sum total of dogma over the two millennia but surely the noble Amfortas sees that the current incumbent and indeed, anyone since Vatican II, has deviated from that?
No? Well, let’s press on:
Did billionaire speculator George Soros, President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, and Obama/Clinton adviser John Podesta conspire to overthrow the conservative Pope Benedict XVI and replace him with a radical, Pope Francis? Did they use America’s intelligence agencies, and our nation’s diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce and blackmail “regime change” in the Roman Catholic Church?
Far from being some wild conspiracy theory, there is sound prima facie evidence to indicate that this is a serious effort to expose a political scandal of the highest order, involving flagrant, criminal abuse of power at the top levels of the U.S. government.
A group of respected Catholic lay leaders have sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging him to launch an official investigation into the activities of the above mentioned individuals (and others) who appear to have been involved in this alleged Vatican coup. They cite eight specific questions they seek to have answered concerning suspect events that led to the resignation of Pope Benedict, the first such papal abdication in 700 years.
You see, I’m afflicted by this curse of believing that if an animal climbs out of the water, it has two webbed feet, a beak and it quacks, then it is more than likely a duck – silly thing but there it is.
