Folly Of 43 Little Lay Emperors Compare Pope Francis To John XXII? Where's The Holy Roman Emperor In All This?
Ludwig IV the Bavarian
Holy Roman Emperor
43 lay scholars accuse Pope Francis of Heresy.
70% of the signatories are lay folk (even a couple of women!). All of the laity never took vows except for marriage (and that can be undone for $700). These laymen have gone out on their own - not called by a higher authority other than themselves.
These lay scholars claim that their filial correction is something extraordinary! Never such a thing has ever been seen since the middle ages:
No similar action has been taken since the Middle Ages. Then, Pope John XXII was admonished in 1333 for errors which he later recanted on his deathbed. In the present case, the spiritual sons and daughters of Pope Francis accuse him of propagating heresies contrary to the Catholic faith. Source
The modern laity are nuts.
They have no voice in the Church - because they are lay folk.
The Correctio Filialis De Haeresibus Propagatis carries no authority.
This is filial correction is the fruit of modern democracy where every layman claims to be his own little emperor.
All of the lay signatories are ballot casting lovers of modern democracy.
This filial correction will fail because it carries no legitimate authority.
Their reference of what took place against Pope XXII in 1333 was lead by a legitimate authority - the Divinely Ordained Authority of the Holy Roman Emperor - Ludwig IV.
These lay nationalists don't care if there is no Roman Emperor.
These lay nationalists despise the memory of the Roman Emperor.
These lay nationalists are convinced that they can go out on their own to defeat Pope Francis.
These lay nationalists will fail.
