for a lot of baleful head shaking over this story from Franciscophobes: Pope’s Sharp Words Make a Wealthy Donor Hesitate.
Because when people say, “Francis has made me interested in the Church again, and I’m thinking of going to Mass for the first time in twenty years!” then that’s proof that his kind of evangelization is shallow and meaningless. How do we know they’re the real deal? (After all, when Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes, and over 3,000 people were baptized that day, we know for sure that every last one those converts understood and were fully prepared to accept every tiny iota of the Gospel with no reservations and with complete and thorough fervor and sincerity.)
People returning to the sacraments? Pff. That’s the last thing we want. But we’re talking about losing money here, folks. MONEY. You see? You see how the corrosive influence of this hateful man is beginning to play out? Francis the Destroyer strikes again!!!!1!!
