What is a “Conservative Catholic” Anyway?

Clearly not me, according to the Washington Post anyway. It says that “Conservative Catholics” are openly questioning the Pope.

I love how secular media tries to impose the conservative/liberal label onto Catholicism, as if anyone who earnestly places their Catholicism ahead of ideology thinks in such terms. As “con” words go, “conservative” isn’t very Catholic.

Consubstantial. Confession. Concelebrate. Conclave. Consecration. Convent.

Conservative, not so much.

Here’s one: conversion, as in the case of the Society of St. Pius X, whose bishop says that “The situation of the Church is a real disaster, and the present Pope is making it 10,000 times worse.”

This is the group that just organized a funeral mass for a Nazi war criminal after the pope’s vicar refused a church funeral.

But it’s Pope Francis making the situation 10,000 times worse, with all his foot washing of Muslim girls in prison and visiting slums and places where illegal immigrants die and dancing with young joy-filled Catholics on the beach. Just look at how Pope Francis is ruining the Church!
