Cardinal Marx has already said Germany is not a "branch of Rome," and can do what it wants. It is no accident that the Germans are making their move now, under Pope Francis. Other countries possessed of bishops with a similar evil disposition will not miss Rome's capitulation.
In some countries, what we euphemistically call "divorced and remarried" (meaning "adulterers") will be welcome in the communion line, as will be practicing, proud homosexuals, "married" or otherwise.
This is happening. It is happening sooner than you think.
The result will be a Church whose unity is fractured, whose catholicism is extinguished, and whose "holiness" is expressed by promoting sodomy.
That's three of the four marks of the Church: "one, holy, and catholic."
We still got "apostolic" going for us, and one out of four could be worse.
Where will the Church be? The Bear believes we're all going to be asking tough questions soon.
