Always the same idiotic accusations, and all to get their money back.

Follow the money, always follow the money.

What Prayhard said. This is how the Vatican is "fixing" its debt problem while eliminating genuine sources of faith.
Novella Nurney
The very reason stated by Prayhard and Ultraviolet is why the FSSPX was first targeted. They wanted the seminary in Econ. If they currently had any accord with the Vatican now I believe they would be eliminated in very short order.
Ultraviolet
Errr... Novella Nurney I didn't say anything about the FSSPX. But it's clear the Vatican is waging a quiet war against religous life.
Novella Nurney
@Ultraviolet: Oh, I didn't intend to implicate your agreement on the FSSPX matter, I apologize. I just added it in as an observation of my own.
Prayhard
I think Francis had some idea of using FSSPX as a trad reservation, but thankfully there's still parts of the Church he cannot get his paws on.
Prayhard
Sadly, a very standard thing. Too Catholic and with resources that could be used for sodomy and heresy.
