I would agree that this is dangerous ambiguity, but I am not sure that "modernity" is the same as "modernISM" or "the Modernist heresy." Just like every American who says he loves "Americanism" is not guilty of "the American-IST Heresy"

In other words, this puts me in a "let's see what he means" attitude.

BTW, I'm much more concerned about his promotion of Maradiaga as his advisor. On that, I have a "let's see what he means" attitude, frankly frowning.

In other news, I notice Pope Francis recently said Mass Ad Orientem. He chose one of those altars which is back flush with the East wall, and allowed pictures to be taken. Pope John Paul II had celebrated Mass at that altar too, but had not allowed pictures or videos.

This True Family continues, I contend, to have a righteous issue against a church that puts them away for the convenience of an immoral woman.

Why is your venom reserved for the Church? The state granted both of them a divorce first, didn't it? Why is the state not guilty of "putting them away"?

The state only speaks for the state. The Church speaks to the spiritual. It’s not the divorce that is my issue. That was bad enough. It’s the spectacle of a congregation and priest gathering to declare that a True Family never existed. It did exist. How would that congregation look in the eyes of the wronged family after adding insult to tragedy? If there must be some kind of ritual, why not require an apology to the True Family in front of witnesses and a penance?
