Bp. Schneider is a Good Man, but Compared to St. Athanasius he is a "Cowardly Rabbit"

In 2016, Bishop Athanasius Schneider called "semi-heretical" Church leaders "cowardly rabbits."
(LifeSiteNews, "'Cowardly Rabbits' Bishop Schneider's candid remarks on 'semi-heretical' Church leaders," February 1, 2016)

Now, he appears to be the "cowardly rabbit" as compared to St. Athanasius when he says the "attempt to depose a heretical pope... is... [a] human solution."

Does he, also, think the attempt to depose semi-heretical Church leaders is a human solution?

So-called good bishops like Schneider since Vatican II have been telling us we can't depose semi-heretical and heretical as well as homosexual bishops who cover-up for sex abuse predators because it would cause a "schism."

Now, Schneider says we can't depose a heretical pope who covered-up for sex abuse predators because it will cause a "schism."

It appears that Schneider, although a good man, compared to St. Athanasius is a "cowardly rabbit."

Athanasius demanded the Arian semi-heretical and heretical Church leaders of his time be deposed unless they repented.

Schneider is directly contradicting the traditional teaching of Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales in saying the Church can't depose a heretical pope.

And in saying there is no formal Church definition saying the Church can depose a heretical pope so let's sit in our hands he is showing he is very unlike Athanasius.

Again, Athanasius shows Schneider to be a cowardly rabbit as compared to him by his defense of the as yet not formally defined traditional teaching that Jesus is God and demanding a Church formal definition that Jesus is God.

We need to act like Athanasius did, and not act like Schneider, in demanding that the traditional teaching that a heretical pope can be deposed be formally defined by the Church.

Sadly, the sincere Schneider is apparently like many good men in the Church in our time and I hope he proves me wrong. He speaks well of the truths of the Church, but is afraid to act on those truths.

There is only one bishop in our time acting like St. Athanasius. That is Bishop Rene Gracida.

All good, but fearful Catholics needs to hear the following:

- St. Justin Martyr:

"To be able to speak of truth and and yet to remain silent is to draw down the anger of God."

- Bishop Fulton Sheen:

"Cowards go to Hell. Never forget that. No matter what happens in your life never forget that basic truth."

- Pope Leo XIII:

"[Catholics] are born for combat."

- St. Joan of Arc:

"I fear nothing for God is with me."
(CatholicMilitant.com, "Saints and Popes Quotes")

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Deleting a lot of comments I see. Might those be comments that disagree with you on "deposing" a pope? Schneider is right and you are wrong. I assume you have read the bishop's article on Rorate Caeli.
Fred Martinez said…
They agreed about Schneider, but said inappropriate things about other subjects in my opinion except Islam who troll-like muddied the water unlike you. Can you give any reasons why the post is wrong? If you're not a troll then answer my question.
Fred Martinez said…
Why is it that those who defend Francis like Mark Shea always say things like "I assume that you have read the... article"? If you have read my article and his then if you're not a troll you can actually raise reasons why I am wrong?

@ Fred Martinez:

I’ve commented much on a wide variety of topics in many different forums for a long time. Until Mark Shea, a few years ago, I’d never had a comment deleted or myself blocked. Skojec was next. Now, it seems it has become a “thing”. I have never seen so much blockage or general threats of blocks and bans as I have on Catholic blogs lately. Everyone is blocking and banning.

It doesn’t make the opinions go away. As far as I’m concerned it just makes mine so much more certain.

“Instructing the ignorant” is a Spiritual Work of Mercy. It is not optional. If a Catholic, such as yourself, doesn’t like my comment; if you find my language offensive, my theology heretical, my outlook uncharitable, then why not simply address that? I love a free for all in a debate. Once the language police show up, however, useful interchange ends; spiritual growth, instruction, wisdom along with it.

Mr. Martinez - Why not just set your blog to where you can moderate the comments in advance, if you are finding it necessary to delete so many of them?

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
