|A helpful Jesuit re-interpretation device...|
'And Jesus said to him: I am. And you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of the power of God, and coming with the clouds of heaven.'
'And Jesus said to him: I am among a host of wise men from ages gone, but you shall see a Marxist blueprint for society in nearly all of my sayings. And whatever I say about human sexuality and marriage: let's just forget that, eh? No? The 'eh' and the 'no' is important because it reminds us that Our Lord comes from Buenos Aires...for now. Basically, Lucifer was right about nearly everything.'

Or they spread a YouTube video critiquing the pope and his exhortation on love in the family, “Amoris Laetitia,” which many traditionalists consider Francis’ opening salvo against the doctrine of the church. Set to the music of “That’s Amore,” an aggrieved crooner sings, “When will we all be freed from this cruel tyranny, that’s Amoris” and “It’s the climate of fear engineered for four years, that’s Amoris.”'

Pope Francis has emasculated Congregations.
Pope Francis has decapitated the Order of Malta.
Pope Francis has decapitated the Franciscans of the Immaculate.
Pope Francis has not, as far as I know, personally suspended priests, but one could argue that the attack on the FFI was so catastrophic that priests may just as well have been 'suspended'.

Pope Francis has done these things which lead people to question where is the mercy of which he speaks.
“And I am the pope, I do not need to give reasons for any of my decisions. I have decided that they have to leave and they have to leave.”
~ Pope Francis on his decision to sack three CDF priests
"And I am the servant of the servants of God, I do not need to give reasons for any of my decisions. I have decided that they have to leave and they have to leave."
There is, I don't doubt, a thin line between suspicion, a healthy cynicism informed by observation of recent times and boggle-eyed par...
