Edit: remember when Benedict XVI and Johnn Paul VI “fired” bishops who disagreed with them?
Bergoglio can’t even fire German bishops of the Sondwerweg, who challenge his authority, but when an Texan from the provinces challenges him, we’ll that’s another matter.
It certainly didn’t happen in the case of the evil German episcopate, or the evil Canadian bishops who sputtered their own allegiance to Satan in the Winnipeg Statement, effectively spitting in Paul IV’s face.
I guess it was just collegiality when Bergoglio insulted Benedict XVI for justifiably calling out bloodthirsty Mohammedans in the Regensburg Speech. Oh how he would be vindicated in the wake of Bataclan Massacre and the Manchester Bombing almost a decade later but he didn’t get a lot of credit for naming them accurately, did he?
Bergoglio is an insufferable hypocrite.
[Torygraph] I’m 2005, then Pope Benedict quoted from an obscure medieval text which declared that the Prophet Mohammed, founder of the Islamic faith, was "evil and inhuman", enraging the Muslim population and causing attacks on churches throughout the world before an apology was issued.
Reacting within days to the statements, speaking through a spokesman to Newsweek Argentina, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio declared his "unhappiness" with the statements, made at the University of Regensburg in Germany, and encouraged many of his subordinates with the Church to do the same.
"Pope Benedict's statement don't reflect my own opinions", the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires declared. "These statements will serve to destroy in 20 seconds the careful construction of a relationship with Islam that Pope John Paul II built over the last twenty years".
