I am surprised to say the least at your mind reading ability GJC, especially if you are an educated Catholic. Unlike you, I dare not make any claim to KNOW what the state of Vladimir Putin's soul is in, nor any other person's soul on this Earth is in other than my very own.
I'd be interested to know if you can state on this forum any SSPX priest or SSPX bishop or any resistance priest or bishop who would openly declare to the whole world like yourself that Vladimir Putin's soul is presently in the state of mortal sin.
Klas, I would have commented earlier on your excellent post, but, I figured, most forum members probably realized how right you were, would allow your argument to stand on its own merits, and offer no further challenges. Not so glc.
Alas, glc, as massive as his intellect may be, crumbled in the face of your reasoned and balanced remarks. Unable to help himself, I guess, he shot back with a weak, not so clever rejoinder, giving you the NO layman of the month award. Wow! Dear me!
If significant numbers of trads can do no better than this, (and I hope it is not the case), then we are in deeper trouble than I originally thought. In this period of "diabolical disorientation," we all have a right to be confused and unclear about a lot of things. But I'm not so sure that we have a similar right to be bigoted and stupid.
