Yesterday a Vortex was released that, when taken in conjunction with the one released this past Thursday, paints a puzzling picture as to the modus operandi at Church Militant. Last Thursday, Michael Voris painted a picture of Pope Francis being victimized and exploited by various villains in the Vatican. Yesterday he seemed to lay much blame for that situation at the feet of Pope Emeritus Benedict. He lays out a case for damage done to the papacy by Pope Benedict's resignation, stating "Benedict's leaving of office has engendered a whole host of problems (most likely unforeseen and unintended) and given them impetus."
I for one agree. I also believe that one of those problems is the papacy of Pope Francis. That problem is one that Church Militant won't acknowledge. Ladies and gentlemen, Pope Francis has been in the Vatican for several years now. This papacy has been one freak show after another and he owns this mess. Why is Church Militant refusing to acknowledge this "elephant in the living room" and instead portraying the Pope Emeritus as a legitimate scapegoat? Well, we do have a parallel situation in Washington and the disasters of the Obama administration, don't we? Years after the Messiah Most Miserable took office, his Minions Most Mindless are still trying to dismiss Obama's bungles by blaming Bush. More and more, the parallels between Obama and Pope Francis are increasing.
Towards the end of this Vortex, Voris says of Benedict's resignation, "we must be honest enough to look at that and say, yes, he made a mistake (a big one)" and "mistakes must be called out and recognized even when they are distasteful". True enough. Now I call upon Church Militant to apply the same logic to the various blunders of Pope Francis. To take Pope Benedict to task and yet to say nary a word about the mistakes of this current papacy is nonsensical at best. The blunders of Benedict are now a matter of history while those of Pope Francis, because they are ongoing, are currently inflicting much harm on the Church. It is the latter that must be addressed, and will be by this blog.
