Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren
(10-22-2012, 08:37 PM)Scriptorium Wrote: I feel compelled to quote myself:

"Notice the contrast of such willingness to criticize and stand in the position of judgement when finding wrong, but such reluctance to make light of good amongst one's enemies, which must be mitigated and qualified until in the end it really just brings us back to a criticism and fault finding. ... And notice how the Pope has to always be criticized. If he says the Church needs "a renewed enthusiasm in her faith in Jesus Christ, the only Savior of the world" we can't take joy even in that. We have to quote this text and that text, and look at, again, the "whole" which negates what he says. ... Notice how whatever positive input there is in this and similar equations, he never gets to a positive."

So freeing up the TLM is really a plan to subvert it.
Seeking reconciliation with the SSPX is really a plan to destroy it.
Adding bells and whistles to the New Mass is more destructive to the Faith than clown masses.
Writing an article about ad orientem is really a modernist essay duping us into complacence.

He's always leading us down the primrose path to destruction. We need a new Screwtape Letters featuring the "modernist Benedict".

Hermeneutic of continuity!  :doh:

As usual you can't actually deal with anything that's said so you come up with straw men and other sophisms.

a) there is no point quoting the hermenuitic of continuity if people deny that that exists, and certainly I fail to see its relevance when it is clear that two things contradict each other

b) the things you list trads saying could all be true, but they really have little relevance to this thread, which is to do with the pope making dodgy statements pretty much 24/7.

c) the usual "trads are judgmental and moany" lark isn't going to cut it, there are genuine objections being made here and trying to fob them off with "you complain too much" isn't going to convice anyone
