“First Things,” a conservative Catholic paper, has fired Maureen Mullarkey for criticizing Pope Francis, going to the extent of publicly ridiculing her conservative views.
Other supposedly conservative Catholic papers have also fired Pope Francis detractors:
The National Catholic Register has fired Patrick Archbold, using liberal talking-points to make its case.
Why are all these “conservative” Catholics suddenly so eager to echo the Liberal party-line?
Were they ever real conservatives?
Are they under pressure from bigger bosses?
Are we only now finding out the extent of the subversion and infiltration of conservative Catholic circles at the behest of the ruling cabal?
As a non-Catholic, I can only feel intensely sorry for traditionalists of that faith.
And more than ever I am thankful that I have never put all my faith “in princes nor in the son of man,” no, not even (or, maybe, especially) when they claim to speak infallibly.
I really do not have a major problem with the content of most of what Pope Francis has said publicly (from urging people to care about the poor, to supporting refugees, to asking us to care about the environment).
What I don’t like is the overwhelming priority he has given to these social issues over reaffirming the Church’s teachings on the family and on sexuality….a reaffirmation that is much more needed than the repetition of concerns voiced often enough by political groups.
Even Francis’ social teaching is marred by his ignorance of economic science and his partisanship on man-made global warming.
And all of his exhortations ring hollow when you realize how closely they follow the globalist agenda that is pushed by the intelligence agencies.
