Notice they pledge allegiance to Francis, not the Catholic Church and all She teaches and believes.
This getting more than comical; it's like watching the Titanic Band playing while the ship is sinking fast. It's sad to see George Pell's name among these characters (I once held out some hope for him) but that is a good example of a man worrying more about his career than the Church he allegedly serves. It is not surprising to see such stink weed as Maradiaga and O'Malley on the list. They would slit their grandmother's throat for a few shekels.
Of course this is yet another distraction from the Dubia which remains unanswered and probably never will until God lifts Francis out of his shiny shoes for his final appointment with Him.
While this is a laughable display of slavishness and doesn't amount to anything important I still am sick unto death watching the disintegration of the Church.
|Sieg Heil !|
