Yesterday, Frank Walker of Canon212 wrote the following at his blog The Stumbling Block. The occasion was Pope Francis' latest risible rant.
The post had a one word title,
Deep in my memory I recall a kid, a really horrible obnoxious kid from my years at Catholic school during the disgraceful era of Pope Paul VI. He was never up to anything but trouble. I remember him whenever I come across this picture of young Pope Francis.
At this point, it would be obvious to any reasonable, normal, thinking person, regardless of his faith or lack of it, that the Catholic Church no longer really exists in a physical sense. Very few people understand that there is a living ‘Church Militant’, albeit now basically underground. They just see bishops, priests and men like Francis, an entirely thoughtless ass and a wrecker. They know that there were no men among our faithful to prevent him, and now our Church is as dead as the others.
Who in the world would want to join the Church of Francis now, a Church who’s very leader is a loud, lying hypocrite; a messianic propagandist for the monster state, a friend of ISIS? They’d have to be a very strange person indeed, or they’d have to be paid.
One of the worst things imaginable appears to be coming true.
The Catholic Church no longer really exists in a physical sense.
And the Pharisees are still getting paid by the click.
Note that the point is qualified by referencing the "underground church." And there is of course historical precedent for that. That doesn't make it alright.
Frank took his title from a post at Weasel Zippers, where "stop" wasn't the title but the entire text.
There's another word of equal length to denote just where Bergoglio can go.
