He’s the sharply dressed one on the left. (OH! I crack me up!)
[I don’t think such of the posters but can think of other things in Rome that are the “work of the devil”]

Helpfully demonstrating the value of “conservatism,” former Primate of Canada and current Prefect of Bishops – whose “conservative values” have left him isolated in the Vatican – takes a moment to chastise the faithful and call them devil’s minions for having dared to ask the pope for genuine mercy.
“These methods of anonymous posters are a work of the devil, who wants to divide us. They are not the methods that should be used in the life of the Church. ” He said the program “Vatican Rooms” to Tgcom24, Card. Marc Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, about the posters appeared in Rome to criticize Pope Francis.
Really? They’re not the methods we’re supposed to use?
What would your eminence suggest?
Dubia, perhaps? Formally submitted by the lawful authority and in accordance with the requirements of Canon Law?
How’s that working out?
I think I’ve mentioned that the term “conservative” in NovusOrdoism is more or less meaningless.
“Conservative” is getting like those funny pics you can’t figure out what you’re looking at. Bunny or duck? Bunny or duck? Bunnyduckbunnyduckbunnyduckbunnyduck…
And here, at OnePeterFive:
It was that corrosion that was destroying the Church, dissolving it like acid. It is Bergoglio the papal wrecking ball who is the solution to this false Nuchurch that we have allowed to grow and almost eclipse the Church of Christ. He is taking these “conservative” bishops by the shoulders and – almost literally – shouting fashionable heresies into their faces and daring them to deny them. The joke is that the things he is asserting every day are nothing more than the same heresies that these bishops have winked and smiled and nodded at for all these years. Bergoglio is simply daring them to either oppose him or oppose Christ, and not allowing them to continue to fudge.
It was not the so-called “liberal” Catholic Church that lulled the great majority of lay Catholics into vice and error and indifference. It was these “conservatives,” including popes, who tried to convince everyone that we could all just get along, that reality was something we didn’t have to face, that there could be harmony between Christ and Belial. They were the ones who perpetuated the most dangerous lie of all.
Well, that illusion is now at last being shattered, and Francis Bergoglio has said, in essence, “Tertium non datur.” There is no “third way”; there is only my way or you’re out.
Conservatism, I’m beginning to think, is not much more than a variety of Stockholm Syndrome. At the moment, any token “conservative” still holding on to his job in the Vatican is mostly there to be trotted out used as a shill to legitimise the regime.
So, the helpful clarity continues. Well done, your Eminence!
