Many of the papal accusers — Schneider, Vigano, Burke, Marshall and many others — preach their lies, their heresies, their hatred for the Roman Pontiff, their rejection of Vatican I and II, and their schism from ivory towers and closed gardens, so to speak. They do not respond to criticism. They have no theological arguments for critics. They are too busy speaking into echo chambers, telling their audiences what they want to hear, to respond. In many cases, they have no substantial theological arguments even for their own audiences.
They are like men shouting lies with their hands over their ears. They cannot hear what anyone else is saying, but they shout loudly to make everyone else listen to them. And their hypocrisy is stunning. They still complain about the decision of the Pope not to respond to the dubia of the four Cardinals. But the schismatics still demand that the Pope answer their questions. Do they answer the questions of the Pope’s supporters? No. Do they engage in theological discussions on these topics? No. They publish articles as if they were the Magisterium issuing dogma. They do not even engage with the teaching of the Church to the contrary.
Many of them have their own small group of followers, and such a leader will speak only to his supporters. Any disagreement is banned, ignored, deleted. Taylor Marshall is like this.
As for Vigano, his writings are those of a man who is clearly not mentally well. His conspiracy theories on Covid and on society in general are contrary to reason, clear public facts, as well as contrary to faith. It is obvious that these leaders of the schism were not chosen because they are holy or wise or scholarly. They are chosen only because they tell their listeners what they wish to hear. And unfortunately, when people are afraid, they are vulnerable to conspiracy theories.
I don’t consider these persons to be Christians at all, who speak with hatred towards LGBTQ persons, material such as is found at the sites Church Militant and LifeSiteNews. Where there is no charity, there is no Christ. Those persons are hollow shells of Christianity who do not love others.
As for those Pharisees who refuse to receive Communion unless it is at a Latin Mass, with every detail of liturgical form correct, kneeling, and on the tongue — they blaspheme against Christ be refusing Him unless they get their way in every detail of the Mass, contrary to what the Church Herself has decided. They are like someone will not not admit a supposed “friend” into their home unless the friend dresses and acts exactly as they demand. That is not friendship or love or faith in Christ.
None of these schismatics listens to what the Magisterium teaches. None listens to anyone outside of their own closed and rotting garden of religious self-worship. And the most prominent of them issue documents from their ivory towers and never respond to any critics and never given theological arguments. They speak as if they were kings issuing edicts.
That is not Christianity. What Pope Francis teaches is the true Faith. His teaching is Christianity. His love for all is like that of Christ. His openness to those who are different is Christian. And those who hate him for these teachings are truly hating Christ himself.
When they are judged by God they will be locked up in the closed garden called Hell.
