Among the diehards of the neo-Catholic establishment, there are still plenty of blind men who are stuck in the usual mode of deny, deny, deny, explain, explain, explain. Take Tim Staples, for example, the “Director of Apologetics and Evangelization” for Catholic Answers. During an installment of the radio call-in show Catholic Answers Live, speaking to a caller named “Stan,” Staples babbled on for nearly ten minutes in an effort to explain that Francis has done nothing amiss and “there is no doctrinal error here.” What follows is my commentary on Staples’ sophistical attempt to explain away the crisis whose existence he cannot admit—for a probable reason I will propose at the end of this piece.
