welcome to bergoglio-land

welcome to bergoglio-land

It's been a little more than two years since bergoglio ascended to the papacy. In that relatively short period of time -- when compared to the 2000 year history of the Catholic Church -- bergoglio has completely transformed the Catholic landscape. Welcome to bergoglio-land...

Shaking things up...

There was a certain Status Quo which was established by JP2 and B16 which worked more or less like this...

on the one hand ... in the "peripheries" V2 abuses were rampant... and ignored by Rome...

on the other hand ... the Vatican maintained a more "conservative" interpretation of V2... and constantly issued official documents along these lines...

That was the "Status Quo"... the balance of power if you will...

... inherent in this "balancing" act was a contradiction -- a lie... because there cannot be two "truths" in direct opposition to each other.

Everyone knew that there was a contradiction... everyone knew that truth and un-truth cannot "co-exist"...

As much as the rebels in the "peripheries" attempted to completely overturn the apple cart, they were unable to do so because of the power of the papacy...

... that all changed with bergoglio...
