What’s more offensive Rihanna dressed as a pope or Bergoglio dressed as a pope?
Our view is that Francis’ election — and the actions of certain individuals in the process — violated the norms for papal elections, making the process and him invalid. One could also conclude that his actions as ‘pope’ have excommunicated him from the Church. The bigger problem for the Church is that many cardinals — who should have already convened a council to remove him — are just as unfit (unfaithful) as he is.
The Vatican’s support for the Met Gala, with its caricature of the sacred, is just another example of Bergoglio’s assault on the Church and Our Lord. Commenting on the “Heavenly Bodies” Gala, Timothy Cardinal Dolan said he sought to have Rihanna “conscripted into the clergy.” The various articles of past popes were not presented in the exhibit with and sense of love, although each was noteworthy and magnificent.
The Catholic imagination should be expressed in a personal style that reflects and gives glory to God — as persons who master themselves and live sacramentally.
