[ I am starting to believe that the Pope will allow Boston, Los Angeles, and other liberal areas be literally God-forsaken, so that they may fruitfully be compared to the more orthodox areas.]
I forgot to add one more detail. How does this theory hold up in the face of the Arlington, VA example, in which a string of orthodox and fairly forceful bishops has now been followed by what appears to be the ecclesiastical equivalent of an Al Quaeda agent? Honestly, I fear for us here in the La Crosse diocese and who we'll get to replace Bishop (now Archbishop) Burke. Some things are turning around here. Are we going to get a subversive now to put a stop to that, like they did in Arlington?
[ Well said. Too often, words like yours are misread as disloyal. ]
Thank you, John. What an unpleasant reality we are faced with, eh?

Truth is seen as error and error is seen as truth. If one even questions that Rome should consider cracking down on dissent one gets the standard arguments about a terrible schism may occur, as if there is not one now, or the heterodox are left in place for some grand scheme.
I pray and hope. I do not follow the logic of allowing heresy and error to be propagated for so long.

Do you go to St. Mary's Oratory in Wausau, where the Institute of Christ the King has the Traditional Mass?
