    He’s a pretty good writer and theologian. Maybe he just realized there’s no saving the Church as constructed. The rot is too deep.

      Could be. Looking back on the last 2,000 years of church history, a major event, usually in the form of a schism, has occurred every 500 years. The Protestant Reformation in the 16th Century was the last one, so we’re due for another one right about now. God Himself only knows what form it will take this time.

        I suspect major shrinkage. We forget that the foremost city of Christendom for 900 years from 330 to 1204 was Constantinople. Given the Islamicization of Europe, maybe it’s time to move the Papacy to someplace with Christians, like Lagos or Moscow. What will survive is a faithful remnant, the Patriactionaries of the Church.

        It doesn’t help that PopeFranky has clamped down on the strongest-growing remnant, the Latin Mass crowd. I suspect they’ll leave in some way and continue to grow, as Orthodox and Haredi Jews will be the only Jews left.

        I hope the Muslims preserve St. Peter’s.

      Indeed, EA. Still, would been nice to have been spared the last 9 years of Franky, doncha think?😀

        He doesn’t really effect anything but Catholicism. Sure he says leftist stuff like building walls is not Christian, but that isn’t a real political problem nor a problem for any Christians, only for Catholics.

        Disagree, Dave. Protestantism protests features of the Catholic Church. As that latter Church has shown the firmness of warm jello and decreased its distance from our separated heretical brethren, all definition and fight has gone out of Protestantism.

        Yes.I don’t know what Benedict could have done to reverse the decline, but he would at least rhetorically have not oppressed the faithful.
