    .
    These accusations against this current pope I agree with most of them, not all. But they are serious and even heretical as this group of Catholic leaders and theologians charge. This world is turning.

    But I will be surprised if anything comes of this. Because this is the third public “condemnation” or demand for answers coming from concerned Catholics and/or bishops that Francis has ignored. And here he remains.

    This is not unlike where Trump can be held hostage for two years on total false accusations, and his rival Hillary can walk free after destroying congress subpoenaed evidence, including an illegal server, staff's blackberries, and 30,000 emails. Explain that.

    Did seeing people burned at the stake give Jesus a stiffy?

    It's important for Catholics because many of us have the same concerns as the signers of that letter. Pope Francis has been asked before to explain some of his remarks. He has refused. Accusing him of heresy may seem heavy handed but at least some Catholics are trying to get some clarification from him.

    Will this letter do any good? Will the bishops take action? Will we get answers? We'll see. Whatever happens, I'm glad the people who signed the letter took this step. I agree with Dr Kwasniewski's remarks. From the article:

    “Perhaps there are others who can sleep like babes without raising a voice of protest to the autodemolition of the Faith and the misleading of countless souls; who see what the Pope is saying and doing, but who shrug their shoulders and figure that it won’t redound to lasting damage. I am not such a person, and I think the same is true of the other signatories,” he added.

    “From those to whom more has been given, more will be expected. If we have been given to see a wolf in shepherd’s clothing, we are expected to do something about it. We will cry “Wolf!” to the vulnerable sheep, and pray fervently that other true shepherds will come to the rescue, in ways that we cannot. If they fail to do so, that is not our problem, but theirs to answer for,” he said.
