PART TWO: HIGH-LEVEL FALL-OUT
It’s almost as if the internet
were designed for end-time’s main onset.
There’s a deep Malaise in Bloggerland
that print media cannot withstand.
Local authorities may keep mum,
but gags on truth we can overcome.
Although Francis sows confusion,
the record will break the illusion.
Let’s broach these errors to date,
that the pew-stalled dare not contemplate.
We open with Laudato Si
which critics call far from error-free.
From St Francis Francis got the name,
if not this encyclical’s chief aim
(backing ecological myths
spread by neo-pagan re-truth smiths.
So this I’ve nicknamed Lousy Data.
This makes me persona non grata,
like Lord Monckton, whose analysis
caused it some kudos paralysis).
Random-testing critics’ reactions
highlights the underlying factions
in ideological debates
Teilhard de Chardin, Karl Marx, Al Gore
get, says one wit, a Francis rebore.
But scientific error’s no base
for any valid doctrinal case,
such as made here, to view earth-ethics
as a new eco-religious mix.
Off-the-cuff’s one thing; but: pre-planned?
Such would prove things at root underhand.
The frantic Francis pace that’s churned out
word/deed pile-ups shows “well-planned” no doubt.
Still, picking out from background onslaughts
on priest-a-shuttle “bad-mention” courts
does not wrestle obscurity
from shepherds’ names, nor impurity
from the motives for their great pretence
that they act in our dumb-sheep defence.
The Synod (family-themed) which proved
the battleground Lucia was moved
years earlier to call the “last”,
had chief contenders reacting fast
(most laymen left adrift on the tide) –
if few took on the other side,
or claimed debate-finality;
all was interim view-parity.
But much unthinkable was aired,
whose contrariness many shared.
Faith’s juggernauts ran on well-oiled cogs,
however ballistic grew the blogs.
Among hushed pew-folk suspense just hung,
even as the prelate-balance swung:
priests spurred to rule-bends. Full hard-truth rout!
But few, purple-robed, backed lay-disgust.
Many saw shattered a life-time’s trust.
Do-something’d Francis did nothing till:
Pledged post-Synod sifts from through-the-mill.
Forth lumbered Amoris Laetitia.
Sounds like (but proves less than) “glitzier”:
marriage and Eucharistic error,
joyfully loved but striking terror
into some Churchmen as Church fellows
spread these errors world-wide. Truth’s bellows
pound shrinking ear-drums, but it’s the Host
the hordes want to desecrate most.
might as well rot in darkest Nubia.
Part Three will be published tomorrow.
