The above video conversation is worth watching to the end. If even the “liberal” Anglicans find the Catholic Church under Pope Francis to be “frightening” there is not much more to be said… IS Pope Francis a “wannabe Anglican”? Would he be more at home as an Anglican? Perhaps more to the point, would they want him? Judging by these two pleasant gentleman, the answer would seem to be a resounding “No!” So, not only is the old joke “are you more Catholic than the Pope” now obsolete because we have to be, in order to keep the Faith, but seems Pope Francis is “more Protestant than the Protestants” according to “Anglican Unscripted”. What a mess!
Take particular note, however, of the observations of the two Anglicans towards the end of the conversation, when they speak of the Russian Orthodox influence in the sphere of morality, now replacing that of the Catholic Church, for example in battling immoral laws in the European Parliament. Frightening? That’s what the Anglican commentators think – what do you think?
