In this “very live” podcast we discussed some of the basic traditional principles of charity, piety, judgment and scandal with regard to the latest “Assisi-Pachamama” type controversy from His Holiness. Here I raise the example of the layman Emperor Otto in his dealings with the evil Pope John XII and his “trafficking with the devil.” Later on in the podcast we discuss some very important traditional doctrines that have been lost even before Vatican II, especially the doctrine of the Two Swords. Finally, I share my hypothesis about some of the papal defenders and what is causing them to continue their defense of what seems to Trads (and many other non-Trads!) to be indefensible.
