A Malice Without Measure



Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler Texas

Jorge Bergoglio a malice without measure

“I am the pope! I do not need to give reasons!” *


Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas would not go the way of the world — which is the way of Bergoglio whose way is the way of the world — so he was forcibly removed from his diocese. He would not abandon his flock and simply step down, so in a fit of Bergoglian rage, Jorge swooped in and threw him down.

His offense? He reproved Bergoglio precisely as St. Paul reproached St. Peter:

“seeing that [St. Peter]
walked not uprightly unto the truth of the Gospel I opposed him to his face, because he was to be blamed” (Gal. 2.11-14)

In Bishop Strickland’s case, he reproved Francis for his carefully crafted ambiguity concerning long-established Church teaching articulated in the Church’s Deposit of Faith (Depositum Fidei), especially on issues suddenly “put up for discussion” in the so-called Synod on Synodality (“synodality” is a Bergoglian neologism); issues that call into question orthodox teaching (literally from the Greek orthódoxos: “right or true belief”). On this account, Bishop Strickland very properly remonstrated, much to the chagrin of Jorge and his coterie, that:

“It is time for me to say that I reject his program of undermining the Deposit of Faith.”

That he is not the only one to see the proverbial elephant in the room should be clear to anyone following this Synod-on-synodality (e.g., Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Archbishop Carlos Viganò, Cardinals Burke, Muller, Sarah, Zen, et alia) — and even now the also-proverbial “Sword of Damocles” hangs over the heads of these faithful Shepherds, for Francis is nothing if not a tyrant, brooking no dissent in his radically progressive agenda.

For uttering the obvious, like many faithful Catholic priests, Bishop Strickland was “canceled.”  This really is a badge of honor these days, and it is only accorded those who take Jesus Christ seriously.

If Jorge is capable to any shame, he is not showing it. What he just did is not a “travesty of justice” — there was never so much as a pretense to justice to begin with. It was undisguised malice — a malice precipitated by the refusal of a bishop to bend his knee before anything short of truth. But truth has too often been the casualty of this pontiff’s reign from the beginning.  Jorge has much in common with another and far older liar.
