Ferrara's Facade: Why should the problem of Francis's legitimacy be brushed aside with "Ignore him"? If there are indications that a priest is abusing minors, would Chris Ferrara shake his head and shrug, "Ignore him"?
In a recent video with Brian McCall, Chris Ferrara was discussing the
problem of Bergoglio's February 2 comments contradicting yet another
teaching of the Catholic Faith. Ferrara's advice? "Ignore him." Where
in canon law is such an approach advocated, let alone required? Ferrara
is too sharp not to know this. Instead of advocating for appropriate
ecclesial sanctions to be determined and imposed--up to and not
excluding declaring that Bergoglio was never the Pope in the first place
or has lost the office--Ferrara invents a CYA dodge of his own and
tries to pass it off as orthodox--even Marian--Catholicism.
Could Counselor Ferrara please explain--based on objective criteria rather than his own subjective preferences--why the problem of Bergoglian legitimacy should consciously be brushed aside? If there are indications that a priest is abusing minors, would Chris Ferrara shake his head and shrug, "Ignore him"? If Joe Biden assaults fundamental human and Constitutional liberties, does Chris Ferrara find "Ignore him" to be an adequate response? Yet where the putative Pope is concerned, this ludicrously illogical standard is held to apply.
Could Chris Ferrara, on behalf of all those who wish too stop short of facing the truth not in general but egregiously in this sole regard, kindly explain?

Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
