Today, via Pewsitter, I read two particularly vapid and banal pieces that had as their end the minimizing of the damage being done by Pope Francis' ill-advised utterances. See here and here. A rebuttal is needed, and Mundabor stepped up admirably to the plate. I suspect Mundabor was commenting on Father Z's piece but it could apply to the Catholic Lane one as well.
Both of the authors of the articles seemed hell-bent on trying to stifle some very appropriate concern and even indignation. Their "don't worry, be happy" approach is, in my opinion, does not conform to what Scripture and Tradition teaches as the appropriate response to evil.
These authors who attempt to paint "smiley-faces" on outright heresies emanating from the Vatican must be contradicted as vehemently as the heresies themselves for they give the Vatican heretics aid and comfort by their (hopefully misguided) attempts to silence our warnings and rebuttals.
