IS JORGE REALLY THE POPE?

From all that I know he is, in fact, a validly elected pope. But, as we know, there have been both good and bad popes in the history of the Church. So, to me at least, the question really is: Is he a good pope? Does a pope who distorts Catholic teaching and persecutes those who hold fast to the 2,000 yr old traditions of the Church, and who gives the impression that one can be saved outside the Church and its previously established rules and regulations, does he deserve to be called the pope? Well, we cannot judge him, but we certainly can withhold our assent to the seemingly heretical positions that he takes.

  1. Duly elected and formally accepted = Habemus papam.

    We are indeed duty bound to resist errors any pope might seek to teach or to impose. St. Robert Bellarmine and others have made this entirely clear.

  2. “…and who gives the impression that one can be saved outside the Church and its previously established rules and regulations, does he deserve to be called the pope?”

    If this thesis were to be true then what would it matter whether he were the Pope or not, or what we called him? The fact that this thesis is manifestly false merely indicates that we are currently suffering the reign of a man who is perhaps the worst Pope in history – so far!

    • a man who is perhaps the worst Pope in history – so far!

      He is certainly on the way to earning that title. I’ll vote that John Paul II holds the title. He even deserves credit for much of Pope Francis’ destruction, as he created him cardinal and brought the praxis of ad intra – ad extra to the center of the Church. John Paul was a master of intellectual obfuscation by playing the Hegelian method of juxtaposing doctrine and error and synthesizing a nebulous middle ground where manifold serpents could play. In other words, John Paul paved the road that Francis walks. I don’t believe Francis is of the caliber to pave the way himself, as witnessed by the murmuring from “conservatives” who yet prefer John Paul’s nuanced way of leading the flock onto rocky ground. But Francis still has time, and may end up causing the simmering divide in the Church to blow wide open.
