Conspiracy Corner: Pope Benedict Not a Subscriber

From the pen of Andrea Torneilli:

On 16 February, the author of this article sent the Pope Emeritus a letter with some specific questions regarding these interpretations. A response came two days later. “There is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry,” Ratzinger wrote in his letter of reply. The only condition for the validity of my resignation is the complete freedom of my decision. Speculations regarding its validity are simply absurd.” Those closest to Ratzinger had been aware of the possibility of his resignation for a long time and he himself confirmed it in a book-length interview with the German journalist Peter Seewald (“Light of the World”, 2010): “If a pope clearly realizes that he is no longer physically, psychologically, and spiritually capable of handling the duties of office, then he has a right and, under some circumstances, also an obligation to resign.” . . .

In the letter he sent to us, the Pope Emeritus answered some questions regarding his decision to keep his papal name and continue dressing in white. “I continue to wear the white cassock and kept the name Benedict for purely practical reasons. At the moment of my resignation there were no other clothes available. In any case, I wear the white cassock in a visibly different way to how the Pope wears it. This is another case of completely unfounded speculations being made,” he wrote.

Next stop on our conspiracy tour:  “Pope Emeritus Benedict kidnapped and replaced by an impostor,” or “Lets see the letter.  It was forged and Pope Emeritus Benedict has been silenced.”  Watch for it.

This is one against “The Wedge.”

  1. “They” have all the answers all the time, indeed.
    So – according to “them” :

    – Andrea Tornelli is a plotter himself. Benedict never wrote to him. It´s not his style of writing.
    – Benedict is healthy. In fact, the plot was and is orchestrated by “Bergoglio” (lack of respect : lack of courtesy), who keeps him locked but sometimes forces him to go out (for the communication plan of the Antichrist).
    – Our Lady is Bergoglio´s enemy, she can´t stop crying and she left the Church (in order not to be be maculated by the Antichrist).

    Their thoughts are founded -among other things – on Catherine Emmerich´s visions.
    Their vicious and hateful attacks (ad hominem) on Pope Francis are irrational. Pure hate. It´s not serious, it´s not normal.

    Benedict pulled the rug from under their feet.
    It is their swan song.
    Let´s pray for them , let´s pray for Pope Francis.

    The post itself and the comments are sadly hilarious.
