Rigidity: Behave Like Men Not Like Amoebas

The Buenos Aires historian Antonio Caponnetto, 70, wrote on NcSanJuanBautistas.com.ar (August 1) a Praise of Rigidity. Highlights.

• Francis suffers from an obsessive ideological fixation on rigidity.

• He cries out against “rigidity” but is the cruel head of a structure of stiffening, punishing and harshness against those he considers his contradictors.

• Francis’ rigidity is the self-righteous rigidity of the traitor of Christ and is directed against Catholics whom he never misses an opportunity to demean.

• The dictionary tells us that rigidity is the capacity of a body to resist bending under the action of external forces acting on its surface. Accordingly , therefore there is a holy rigidity practised by the saints and martyrs who didn’t bend before lies and confusion.

• There is a virtuous rigidity and a vicious rigidity.

• “A slap in the face can be the fruit of charity and a caress an invitation to sin" (Saint Augustine). Francis’ flexibility, appeasement, tenderness, syncretism, are such caresses.

• Asking Francis for a paternal, pontifical, pastoral, or charitable attitude, is like sending Christmas greetings to Herod, wishing happy Easter to Judas, or asking Caiaphas to prostrate himself before Calvary.

• Francis can give Catholics only the rigidity of the Synagogue, the inflexibility of Masonic sentences, and the vengeance of the Sanhedrin.

• Christ used the gall hand of his rigour and the sugar hand of his mercy to teach us to behave like men, not like amoebas.

Bergoglio, groveling before sodomy and paganism applies his Vengeful Rigidity against faithful Catholics.

This news refers to Dr. Caponnetto's comment on a reply letter from Bergoglio to a courageous Argentine priest where he politely wrote to Bergoglio lamenting the unjust and tyrannical closure of the flourishing Catholic seminary of San Rafael in Argentina.

All these attacks on humble Francis are not fair, he never said rigid it is a mistranslation what the holy humble Francis meant was not to be not as nice as other people and not to question so much about all the holy goings on in sante marte and the surrounding area.

All these attacks on humble Francis are not fair, he never said rigid it is a mistranslation what the holy humble Francis meant was not to be not as nice as other people and not to question so much about all the holy goings on in sante marte and the surrounding area. Card Cocopalmario attacks were unfounded he was actually in that apartment leading a spiritual retreat and as for the attacks on the stealing of the Peter's Pence collection to fund the Elton John film, holy humble Francis only defended that theft as he really believed it was a film on prayer and spirituality, so stop with all the hateful attacks on humble small car holy Francis he really does smell the sheep. Who am I to judge should be your motto just like humble Francis.

"Brood of vipers, how could you speak to good effect, wicked as you are? It is from the heart’s overflow that the mouth speaks; a good man utters good words from his store of goodness, the wicked man, from his store of wickedness, can utter nothing but what is evil.
And I say this, that in the day of judgement men will be brought to account for every thoughtless word they have spoken.

Pope Francis does have some obsession with "rigidity". Hmm, our Lord Jesus didn't mince words or misspeak, he was very plain and black and white with his words. To be Catholic is to be "rigid" because God and the Faith is unchanging. We don't bend in the wind based on human whims or trends, or rather we shouldn't.

Stating the obvious to all but his sycophants; harsh but true. I pray Pope Brandon will listen.
