What the young liberal/progressives were not able to accomplish under Popes Paul, John Paul and Benedict, as an aging cabal on life-support, they feel they can do it under Pope Francis. But in the title above I use the word trite, because what they offer is 1970’s stale, its overused by this cabal and consequently of little import as it lacks in originality or freshness.
This liberal/progressive cabal will not let any tragedy, scandal or misstep go unused. In an infallible and dogmatic way, they will say that the Church has been corrupt for 2000 years because of a clique of clerics who have wounded the Church. That clerical clique needs to be replaced with laity who are clericalized and clergy who are laicized and that will lead to a recovery of authority in the Church.
In other words, the old canard of a Church in hermeneutics of rupture with what has preceded it is the only way forward. Did I say this was trite?
