This laughably bad piece at the Remnant Newspaper has garnered 100% negative comments so far.
Mike, you need to get out from under Chris Ferrara’s thumb while you still have an audience and a subscriber base. Seriously. The vast majority of Trads in the English-speaking world either know or strongly suspect that Benedict never validly resigned. Because it’s obvious. You’re tinkling into the wind by berating pretty much everyone in your audience for simply acknowledging reality, and actually believing that it’s important, and wanting the situation rectified.
(It was pointed out to me that this is actually mandated in Canon Law itself:
Can. 748 §1. All persons are bound to seek the truth in those things which regard God and His Church and by virtue of divine law are bound by the obligation and possess the right of embracing and observing the truth which they have come to know.”)
For the life of me, I simply cannot comprehend what these “It doesn’t matter who the Vicar of Christ on Earth is, or is not” people can possibly be thinking. Usually I can at least dimly see an opposing position’s rationale – wrong though it may be, I can still see what they’re thinking. With this, I got nothin’. If it makes no difference WHO the Pope is, then what possible purpose can the papacy serve at all? Don’t these people see that they are serving the Freemasonic agenda to a T?
I screen-capped this portion of the comment box on the piece. Very well-said here.
