RETRORATE GOES ECUMENICAL


Our friends at RetRoRate (actually they're almost a full course Italian meal: Cipolla and Gnocchi! Throw in Monsignor Vitello and Don Funghi, and you've got dinner and/or the clergy staff at the Basilica of Ss Prosciutto e Melone) may disagree with the far right Evangelicals on the AUTHORITY of the Pope, but they're IN FULL COMMUNION with them on their HATRED of THIS Pope.

And they're happy to spread the good word about just how similar their newfound friends are!
 
Where brooding minds old wounds bewail,
Thy Kingdom come! Thy Truth prevail!

  1. I see that his majesty is pimping the faithful followers to accompany (pay for) his trip to Rome in October.
    I wonder if he will take a selfie with the Bishop of the phantom diocese that he purports to be incardinated in?

  2. Pope Francis has the right idea. The Catholic Protestant divide is artificial and reflects historical power struggles wrapped in theology and ideology just as an excuse to rule over and control ordinary people. At some point, perhaps another pope will come who'll take this to its logical conclusion and jettison all the fairy tales surrounding the figure of Jesus and present him as what he actually was - just another figure who lived in a brief period of time with a message of love and togetherness for all regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation and beliefs.

    Francis is a breath of fresh air. I have no love for Catholicism of any other kind of Christianity and this pope addresses that implicitly in his actions and what he says - in the big scheme of things, Christian beliefs and differences with others don't really matter. No amount of spin from Christian believers can change that. Who would have thought that a pope of all people would lay the final groundwork for a truly post-Christian world? Viva Papa Francesco!

    1. Oh oh ... Someone spent an awful lot of money on maniples and altar cards and is NOT a happy camper in a mozzetta-free papacy ....

  3. Ohh,,, It is always so nice when people make friendships. When ReRorate finally gives up the charade of loyalty to Rome and becomes sedevacanists, they'll have Protestant friends already.

    Oh and the Zman had a tizzy over Francis' lunch with the Evangelicals and threw up red ink all over his blog. I guess Pope Francis isn't the Pope of Christian Unity because he isn't talking to Christians who satisfy Z's agenda.

  5. I am a Protestant and very pleased to be one. The Catholic church has been blessed for generations with good priests living, working and praying in the fashion of our own esteemed Father D.

    I have been blessed with this Pope, a person of genuine humility who REALLY cares for the well being of his church.

    Since starting to read and write here I have learned more than a few things. The TRUE Catholic lives by example, loving and serving our Lord, Jesus Christ.

    These lace wrapped, brocade encrusted, funny hat wearing charlatans in the form of Rev. Mutha Cuntwash, little Johnny Turd Zuhlsdork and all the empty seat believing Craniovacantists believe that I AM going to HELL. Yeah, I have enough sins on my resume to earn me a place there. At least my Protestant bretheren don't extort money from the faithful to make their time less in some imaginary fantasyland called Purgatory.

    Zuhlsdork, Cuntwick, all these Sedevancantist asshats and I are going to HELL. I look forward to tormenting you when y'all get there.

  6. The Rorate people are a collection of real sad sacks, "New Catholic", ex-Anglicans, old buddies of Bertone & Co. who ran circles around poor old Benedict XVI in their quest for clerical privilege, culture wars and religious superiority. They still can't believe the Holy Spirit (Ghost to them) disagreed with them at the last Conclave. No problem though as they still have the SSPX where they'll end up sooner or later. The sooner the better for everyone else.

    1. Yes indeed, so many people took advantage if Benedict xvi it's sad. WilliamSSon's excommunication being lifted is first to come to mind.
