Remember the "Who am I to judge?" remark?

H-m-m-m-m. Was that an attempt to use the bully pulpit of (literally fake) Pope to brainwash the "faithful" into numbness to the Sodomy and perversion so that was it hits the world news cycle, people will be all more helpless to defend against it all and understand it for what it really is: despicable?

("If HE cannot judge, then how can I?")

It's beginning to all make sense.

OK, I’m the Protestant in the family, so, “Who am I to judge?” But I don’t see any changes coming out of Rome in the near future. It appears the key “villains” in the story had enough strength to get one of their own installed as putative Pope. Now he has been there long enough to “embed” his own in even more key positions of power.

In today’s historical context, I don’t even see enough opposition strength to have another Avignon. Or however you would pronounce the city in Poland where it would have to be set up. I pray for the Church, even if I’m not part of it.
