I want to remind my readers of my prediction that, after a conservative schism, in which the schismatics accuse the Pope of heresy (fulfilled prediction), there will be a liberal schism. The next Pope after Pope Francis will be conservative. I’m predicting it will be Cardinal Arinze as Pope Pius XIII. And his conservative teachings, which are just as true as the liberal teachings of Pope Francis, as well as his conservative changes in discipline, will drive liberal heretics and apostates away from the Church. They will have to choose between leaving the Church and remaining in the Church, but the latter will require that the follow the beliefs and practices of Catholicism. Many will leave rather than believe what the Church teaches.
The two schisms are one in God’s eyes. Both groups leave because they choose their own understanding over the teaching of the Church. Both leave out of pride. Both leave in conflict with a Pope. Both leave thinking they are right and the Church is wrong. And both leave because they were excessively influenced by secular society.
Yes, the conservative critics of Pope Francis are acting just as secular society teaches people to act: no respect for authority, putting one’s own ideas above the teachings of any authority; treating persons who have different views on society and politics with animosity; polarization between liberals and conservatives; lack of humility; not accepting correction; joining (esp. on the internet) with persons of the same opinions to oppose everyone else; acting like you have the right to judge and condemn others; feeling entitled to treat those who think differently with contempt; etc.
