POPE THREATENS FIRINGS [ I guess he's a Neo-Cal - sarc ]
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has laid down an ultimatum to defiant Nigerian priests: lose your job if you don't obey me and your bishop.
Francis met June 8 at the Vatican with a delegation from the Ahiara diocese, where priests have been refusing to accept the 2012 appointment by the then pontiff, Benedict XVI, of the local bishop.
Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, reporting the pope's unusually harsh order, said Sunday that Francis was acting "for the good of the people of God" by threatening to suspend the priests from the ministry if they didn't pledge in a letter, by July 9, "total obedience" to Francis and accept Bishop Peter Okpaleke's appointment.
According to many TWW commenters, ONLY Neo-cals would be so authoritarian.
I wonder if Deebs will give this a post - probably not. It doesn't follow the narrative does it.
