“No Opposition Between Pope Francis And Me“ - Cardinal Sarah

“All those who want to put me in opposition to the Pope waste their time and energies,” Cardinal Robert Sarah told Atlantico.fr (April 14),

"Their claims are wind and a shield hiding their own opposition to the Holy Father,” he added, "To assert that I oppose the Pope is at the same time unjust and dishonest."

Atlantico.fr alludes that Sarah's position on immigration contradicts Pope Francis' position.

Sarah replies, "One has the impression that, in our days, it is forbidden to reflect on something." He explains, "Why does one want to forbid an African to reflect on such a serious question and oppose him against the Pope?"

And, "We must understand more deeply the tragic phenomenon of migration, instead of opposing each other."

Sarah goes on calling modern immigration a "new form of slavery" and "disregard for human dignity." And, "We are pretending to be charitable and welcoming to those whose country we have destroyed."

Absolutey not. I've heard similar statements from many devout priests. They're never in opposition with The Pope as the lawfully appointed head of The Church.

They're just in opposition with his heretical views, his blasphemies, his errors. They give homage to the office, to the man who holds the office, while opposing everything he believes and stands for.

Yes! That makes sense.
It's not unjust to oppose an antipope, it's unjust to read Canon 332 §2, ignore the evidence for the invalidity of Benedict's resignation, refuse to speak to those who know Canon law better than you, or insist on living by hearsay rather than the law. It's illogical to contradict Bergoglio and then say you are not contradicting him. If you act this way you cannot be saved, because you are a …More

Just because on stands for Truth and speaks about the Truth does not mean he opposes somebody that is correct ,but sometimes the one one you not oppose says things that are opposing to the Truth that is the question
