Even the Neocons Are Getting Anxious

Edit: when George Neumayr gets critical like this... Is the Apocalypse coming? Even Neocons are angry at this Pope. Still, he doesn't go far enough. Surely, anyone who's tried to be a faithful Catholic at some point has experienced a spiteful leftist who can't contain his contempt for the faithful Catholic? 

The Pope's Caricaturing Conservatives

[Spectator] The scandalous synod on the family skidded to a stop last weekend in Rome but not before Pope Francis got in a few more licks at conservatives, whom he caricatured in his final remarks as heartless.

The speech was notable for its nastiness, displaying the very lack of charity he routinely assigns to conservatives. The synod, he said, had exposed “closed hearts which frequently hide even behind the Church’s teachings or good intentions, in order to sit in the chair of Moses and judge, sometimes with superiority and superficiality, difficult cases and wounded families.”

He continued: “It was about trying to open up broader horizons, rising above conspiracy theories and blinkered viewpoints, so as to defend and spread the freedom of the children of God, and to transmit the beauty of Christian Newness, at times encrusted in a language which is archaic or simply incomprehensible.”

This would be a lovely time of year for a Conclave.

Agreed Anon. at 2:34.!!
Much more of the Church than people think would rejoice....especially the Cardinals. From what I read immediately after the Synod, many Cardinals and Bishops dislike Francis and his thugs more than ever, with more now coming into their camp.
Except for his own staff, I wonder if Pope Francis can deel the atmosphere of dislike and revulsion for him in the Vatican....if not downright hatred.

God from the beginning always set up leaders for the people. Today we call those men Pope's, Cardinals, Bishops and Priests. What is so heartless about a chosen leader of God to be zealous for the salvation of souls. I wonder which Church Bergoglio entered? It certainly wasn't Christ's Catholic Church. Just another Protestant making up his own Church and lashing out against those who will not go along.
