- Pope frets about 'hemorrhage' of priests, nuns from church
Beatings will continue until morale improves.
It doesn’t occur to His Holiness Pope Francis I that perhaps HE is the problem. Maybe it’s his toxic leadership style that is driving away Catholic clergy. After all one minute he’s Pope smiley face and then the next he’s taking cheap shots at people he doesn’t like and calling them names. Telling people they’re “not Christian” if they don’t give up their trousers to the first person who asks (Are those my pants?). He’s probably doing the same if not even worse to Catholic clergy behind closed doors. This "writing people out of the movement” telling them they’re not a good member of the party because they disagree with some aspect of the party line is an ancient Communist tactic.
We see everywhere else that secularized Christian churches are losing membership. Pope Francis is a Leftist social justice warrior (SJW) and like all SJWs, once they take over an organization, no matter what it is, they repurpose it to promoting Leftist social justice causes. Like the Pope is doing. Furthermore we also know that once SJWs take control of an organization they drive out all opposition. One cannot have an honest disagreement with them. Conservatives tend to be K-strategist, if they disagree with you they will be straight-forward and let you know about it. It’s not in their nature to be two-faced and passive aggressive about conflict. Leftists being r strategist on the other hand, have no problem with being two-faced and deceptive to advance their cause. They will bide their time until they can portray themselves as being with the majority opinion and use such a portrayal to intimidate opponents. Everybody agrees with us, so if you don’t you’re dumb and should go away.
Is this what is happening here?
Are the Leftist SJWs in the Catholic Church, led by the Pope, driving out Conservatives and publically crying big crocodile tears while they do it?
Yeah, maybe, just maybe, Catholic clergy are leaving the Church because they are not finding transcendent spiritual fulfillment under the current regime.
Jeremy my cousin and my sister both left the catholic church for non-denominational churches they helped build. These churches feature sermons that are bible discussion starters and carry over into the week at home, with the congregation members continuing the exploration of the theme with family—even heathens like me—on their own time. Very few people are staying with the Church in Maryland, so the Church has been busy resettling Muslims and Latinos.
