For the record, I would hesitate to go so far as to judge the
intentions of Francis, beyond what he has explained.
Since I haven't seen anything that would specifically indicate
that he intends "blasphemy" then I would not accuse him of
that --------- until this beach ball / sports jersey incident.
Maybe they handed out beach balls and sports jerseys at WYD,
I don't know, but what they DID hand out was condoms. And
they hand out condoms at all WYD events. It's "standard
practice" now. It has become, they might say, 'traditional'.
And what DID happen the day after Francis planted a hot kiss
on the cheek of the woman president of Brazil (in another
thread) was, she approved abortion for the entire country --
not too much a different topic from condoms, last time I
Therefore, the beach ball and the jersey have a direct tie to
the promotion of sins against the 6th and 9th commandments
in Brazil, of which we are all reminded, with this beach ball
and jersey on the Traditional altar at St. Mary Major, next to
the Traditional tabernacle.
And therefore, that is blasphemy, by association.
