Casuistry

.
So if I get this right, it doesn't matter exactly what the Pope has said or done, because you can always work out a way of interpreting it that means that he hasn't contradicted, in any hard and fast sense, what the Catholic Church has always meant.  And if other people: Cardinals, Bishops, people like that: choose to interpret what the Pope said heretically, well, we all know that they're wrong, or at least badly advised: hey! somebody should do something.

If you care, look at what happened to the Centre Party in Germany after the 1933 elections. It's what happens to Catholics when they keep compromising with the world till they have nothing left; it's what happens to them when they do nothing instead of thinking about fighting for what they believe in.
