That, I'm afraid, is what Pope Francis' streamlined annulment Motu Proprio has accomplished. Even a world that hates the Church always had a grudging respect for its consistency of teaching. That went right out of the window in the 1960s and has so degenerated to the point that we are now where we are, a confused, demoralized and lifeless body of people who do not know what they are doing anymore.
To ice this mouldy cake Francis offers a Motu Proprio that will make a bad situation infinitely worse, and the world will laugh at the whole sorry spectacle. They will now see that they were right about Catholicism all along. It was a sham.
Those who might have had one toe in the Tiber will back off thinking, "why bother?" The Church will now become more or less exactly like the church they may have been wanting to leave. "I thought they were going to challenge me to attain something higher", the prospective convert might have thought, but apparently not. "These clowns who are running that show can't be taken seriously anymore". Unfortunately people can deduce from what they see. They see a Church that is merely an object to be laughed at.
That is what they will think, sad to say.
That is why the Church, hated, reviled yet respected for 2,000 years, has been reduced to being the butt of rude jokes, nasty insinuations and weakness in the face of the aggression of its enemies. It has lost the world's respect and is fast becoming nothing but a joke, something amusing to reflect on and then be quietly forgotten. It is irrelevant.
There are many excellent essays on this disastrous Motu Proprio available on the internet so I can do no better than to refer readers to those. For my part I am trying to somehow in my own small way, put my finger in the leaking wall to keep the water from flooding the basement. I'm trying to convince any non-Catholic readers that this situation is not normal and that it cannot last - but that there will be severe damage done before this all ends. There are those who have stated that if this Motu Proprio stands unchallenged it could essentially destroy the Sacrament of Matrimony. It wouldn't take much to make that pillar of stability fall; one little push from a papal finger could do it.
I ask these non-Catholic readers and friends to realize that the Church, because it was founded by Christ, will not fail in the end. The last two thousand years should have made that clear. But it doesn't make sitting helplessly by watching its Crucifixion any easier to take.
