Why not copy it here? The Horror!A Buenos Aires journalist describes Bergoglio
We have many friends around the world, including in the dear Argentine Republic. And we asked a cherished friend Marcelo González, of Panorama Católico Internacional, who knows the Church of Argentina as well as the palm of his hand to send us a report on the new pope.
Here it goes:
The Archbishop of Buenos Aires kneels down to receive the "blessing"
of Protestant ministers and Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa - Buenos Aires, 2006
Of all the unthinkable
candidates, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is perhaps the worst.
Not because he openly professes doctrines against the faith and morals,
but because, judging from his work as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, faith and morals seem to have been irrelevant to him. A sworn enemy of the Traditional Mass
, he has only allowed imitations of it in the hands of declared enemies
of the ancient liturgy. He has persecuted
every single priest who made an effort to wear a cassock,
preach with firmness,
or that was simply interested in Summorum Pontificum.
Famous for his inconsistency
(at times, for the unintelligibility
of his addresses and homilies), accustomed to the use of coarse, demagogical, and ambiguous
expressions, it cannot be said that his magisterium is
heterodox, but rather non-existent
for how confusing
His entourage in the Buenos Aires Curia, with the exception of a few clerics, has not been characterized by the virtue of their actions. Several are under grave suspicion of moral misbehavior.
He has not missed any occasion for holding acts in which he lent his Cathedral to Protestants, Muslims, Jews, and even to partisan groups in the name of an impossible and unnecessary interreligious dialogue.
He is famous for his meetings with protestants in the Luna Park arena where, together with preacher of the Pontifical House, Raniero Cantalamessa, he was "blessed" by Protestant ministers,
in a common act of worship in which he, in practice, accepted the validity of the "powers" of the TV-pastors. This election is incomprehensible:
he is not a polyglot, he has no Curial experience, he does not shine for his sanctity, he is loose in doctrine and liturgy, he has not fought against abortion
and only very weakly against homosexual "marriage" [approved with practically no opposition from the episcopate], he has no manners to honor the Pontifical Throne.
He has never fought for anything else than to remain in positions of power.
It really cannot be what Benedict wanted for the Church. And he does not seem to have any of the conditions required to continue his work.
May God help His Church. One can never dismiss, as humanly hard as it may seem, the possibility of a conversion... and, nonetheless, the future terrifies us.
