REMNANT COMMENT: I wonder if St. Paul would still "represent the opinions of Pope Francis" according the Bishop Christensen. It was Paul, after all, who noted in his first letter to the Corinthians that "the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils."
I guess we've evolved since then, right? Paul the Rad Trad, on the other hand, is no longer relevant since he never read the 16 documents of Vatican II.
