The musings and meandering thoughts of a crotchety old man as he observes life in the world and in a small, rural town in South East Nebraska. My Pledge-Nulla dies sine linea-Not a day with out a line.

Chevalier Charles Coulombe on Is Church Discipline Infallible?
An excellent video in which the Chevalier discusses Church discipline and the Magisterium. He points out that discipline, per se, is neither fallible nor infallible, whilst it can be strict or lax. He uses as examples, fasting and Canon Law. Since both have been changed (both within my lifetime, in fact), they cannot be infallible, since infallible statements, of their nature, cannot change. This is a basic theology lesson that Francis seems not to have learned.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
