Flashback: It appears to me that O'Reilly & those like him are Francis-like in saying they opposes Francis, but almost always opposes those who oppose Francis

Fred Martinez, again, asks O'Reilly:
"Is Communion for adulterers 'explicitly a here[sy]'? Answer: yes or no" - The Catholic Monitor

Why are you so obsessed with Francis being infallibly definitely the pope to the point you are a afraid of cardinals and bishops correcting your definitively non-heretical Francis on "communion for adulterers" which apparently may be the opposite of your position maybe if Aqua is reading you right and now you are apparently defending his "communion for adulterers" new cardinals? Would you love Pope Mcelroy as much as you love Francis? Would you be against correcting a future Pope Mcelroy? Would you be against correcting a future Pope James Martin? Would you love Pope James Martin as much as you love Francis?
LifeSiteNew: "But the Pope’s most radical [cardinal] pick is Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego, known to faithful Catholics as arguably the most pro-homosexual, left-wing prelate in the United States.
In recent years, McElroy has sparked outrage for celebrating “LGBT Masses,” rebuking the Church’s position on homosexual acts, urging Catholic funeral rites for active homosexuals, and throwing his support behind dissident Jesuit Fr. James Martin while blasting conservatives’ “destructive” attitudes on sexuality... And on clerical sex abuse, even liberal activists are raising the alarm about his history."

Aqua said it best on your never ending positions and questions:
Steve said: "there is nothing ambiguous about my position on communion for adulterers."
There is nothing ambiguous in Bishop of Rome Bergoglio's position, either.
Unfortunately for your position, you and and your Pope are on opposite sides ... as you are on almost every issue that matters.
Great, that you believe Communion for adulterers is a grave sin. The Pope who you follow wants you to change that view; HAS ALREADY, in fact, changed that view in his parallel church. So, that's a dilemma for you, as it is for everyone similarly deceived.
Steven said: "Further, your question about the Ten Commandments is insane. These are God's commandments. They are absolutely true, and apply in all circumstances."
Again, as I pointed out above, the Bishop you accept as Pope disagrees with you and has struck at the heart of every single Commandment in quantifiable ways.
Wonderful, that you accept the Commandments. As you infer, it's inconceivable that anyone could even ask such a question of another Catholic. However ..... The Pope" is, in fact, leading the Church to reject these Commandments - every single one.
In this way, the standard of unity has become the vector of schism which is one of many proofs the second man in the two-headed Papacy is no Pope.
What is insane is insisting on the Divinely binding nature of the 10 Commandments while also insisting on a "Vicar of Christ", a "Pope", who insists on violating the 10 Commandments.
Schizophrenia def: "a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation." ... I think it fits. There is a disconnect between what you SAY, and what IS ... a very common malady these days.
Fred - The Catholic Monitor comment section
The Catholic Monitor has had a very interesting conversation over the past few days with blogger and former intelligence officer Steven O'Reilly on if Francis is infallibly definitely the pope and on both his as well as Francis's position on Communion for adulterers. Here is the comment section threat for the post The Catholic Monitor asks Steven O'Reilly: "Is Communion for Adulterers 'Explicitly a Here[sy]'? Answer: Yes or No" & "Are the Ten Commandments Infallible Catholic Dogma?:
