We will never be disillusioned or lose our way if we are guided by God.
— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) May 22, 2014
Predictably, the Francophiles are fawning over this kitschy dime-store philosophizing. They don’t seem to realize this one sentence sums up succinctly everything that is wrong with the Roman Catholic Catholic Church, and Christianity more generally.
“If you put your trust in God, you’ll never lose your way.”
“Oh, yeah? What about the Inquisition? What about the Crusades?”
“Well, that’s easy: they didn’t put their trust in God.”
“How do you even know that?”
“Because they lost their way.”
