Remember when Pope Francis welcomed criticism? He in fact called it "healthy".
My! How times do change!
Both LifeSiteNews and One Peter Five have launched sites whereby faithful Catholics can sign petitions in support of the Filial Correction (Correctio Filialis) that was publicized this weekend. Any faithful Catholic with internet access can sign if they choose. Well, almost any faithful Catholic!
Those Catholics within the Vatican will not be able to see those sites. The Secretariat for Communications for the Holy See has blocked any computer within the Vatican from accessing these sites. We might have expected this kind of conduct from Red China behind its Great Wall, but the Vatican? Gee willickers! Isn't criticism supposed to be healthy? That's what Pope Francis said - a few years ago. How strange! To add to the strangeness, consider who was appointed a consultor for that office by the pope. Yes! Father James Martin! I suppose, though, we shouldn't be too surprised, given Martin's propensity to block anyone who contradicts his posts and tweets. The progressives are revealing their tyrannical colors!
