Is Francis Losing His Mind? (Bizarre Behavior Rattles Catholic Faithful)

Rate this item

He will rarely bless the faithful, preferring instead to wave at them or wrap them up in a bear hug...

He makes fun of altar boys folding their hands. . .

He won't kneel in front of the Blessed Sacrament. . . 

He won't wear the shoes of the fisherman...

He won't live in the papal apartments...

And now he won't allow Catholics to receive the indulgence that comes with kissing the papal ring...


So, what do we have here?

This is Francis insulting visiting faithful, merely for trying to follow protocol and honor the august office of the papacy. (Note to Francis: It's not about you, Holiness!) 

It suggests either severe anger management issues or a kind of out-of-control narcissism that manifests itself in borderline sociopathic behavior.  And at the very least, it indicates a loathing for the office of the papacy such as the Church has never before witnessed in an occupant of the Chair of St. Peter.

It's as if it actually infuriates him when the faithful fail to duly appreciate the systematic degradation of the papacy on which he's been working since he first appeared on the loggia and asked us to bless him.  

God help us, what is wrong with this man?
