Archbishop Coleridge: dubia prompted by search for ‘false clarity’

[More polemics from another Frankensycophant]

Catholic World News – December 12, 2016
Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane, Australia, has suggested that the prelates seeking clarification of Amoris Laetita are pursuing a “false clarity that comes because you don’t address reality.”

In an interview with the Jesuit journal America, the Australian archbishop—who participated in the Synod on the Family—said that during the sessions “I heard voices that sounded very clear and certain but only because they never grappled with the real question or never dealt with the real facts.” He said that while some people prefer to see things in black and white, pastors are “very often often dealing in a world of grays and you have to accompany people, listen to them before you speak to them, give them time and give them space, and then speak your word perhaps.”

Archbishop Coleridge conceded that many people have been “unnerved” by the papal document, as his fellow Australian, Cardinal George Pell, had suggested. But he said that Pope Francis is taking the pastoral approach. “Some people expect from the Pope clarity and certainty on every question and every issue, but a pastor can’t provide that necessarily,” he said.

  1. “Some people expect from the Pope clarity and certainty on every question and every issue, but a pastor can’t provide that necessarily,” he said.

    Nonetheless, he’s absolutely clear that clarity isn’t possible. Compare this tactic with the “fake news” narrative being pushed by the media and Poop Francis. Both the Left and Francis are under attack and are pulling every trick in the book.

  2. Sounds familiar. Who remembers the progressive modernist and Marxist Liberation theology jargon about “false supernaturalism”?

  3. Bluntly, this **** is noting less than idolatrous, diabolical narcissism.

    Coleridge would have been canned, defrocked and sent to a frigid monastery to feed penguins for the rest of his days under St Pius X.

    One bishop was called on the carpet by the Church’s last great, holy pope.

    He entered the Saint’s office and Papa Sarto made him stand for a long time while He perused documents. He did not acknowledge the bishop.

    After a long, long wait, Pope Saint Pius glanced up and told his visitor, “You are dismissed, FATHER.”

    And, that, boys and girls, is how Saints deal with Modernist tools.

  4. gpmtrad,

    I love your account of how St Pius X dealt with heretical bishops.

    Oh how I wish that could happen again.
    However, now the wolf runs the hen house.
