Absolute Monarchy and Unthinking Papolatry
The blog Ignatius His Conclave predicts that there will be no answer from Pope Francis to the recent “Filial Correction”, and explains why.
The ‘Filial Correction’, by 62 clergy and scholars, which has recently been launched detailing accusations of heresy against Pope Francis has already been dismissed by Francis’s supporters.
One described it as a ‘flea-bite to an elephant’, alluding to the fact that few names of international repute (and no members of the hierarchy) have signed the letter…..
The ‘Correctio’ is significant for two reasons: the first is that it is virtually unprecedented; the second that it is the only way remaining to express what is an increasing body of dissent in Europe’s only surviving Absolute Monarchy – bolstered as it is by an unthinking Papolatry, which is itself inimical to the Church’s well-being.
The Filial Correction and its signatories, along with a summary statement and press release, can be viewed at www.correctiofilialis.org.
In the more febrile sections of the Church media there has already been speculation about how Pope Francis will react to the ‘Filial Correction’. Such speculation only goes to show how little the current Vatican policy is understood in such circles.
Buoyed up by popularity in the secular press, Francis does not need to pay heed (as his silence over the dubia has shown) to the opinion of Catholics. He can go over their heads and appeal to the post-Christian majority, who share his opinions.
Expect no response, therefore. The dignity of absolute monarchy is best maintained by silence.
