Argentine Archbishop: Episcopal Conferences Serve to Promote Stalinism
Former La Plata Archbishop Héctor Aguer noticed that bishops’ conferences are imitating political parliaments with [heretical] majority and [Catholic] minority groups (Rorate-caeli.blogspot.com, April 21).
The notion of “unity,” which for Aguer is “typical of episcopal poetry,” is wielded to squeeze those who are reluctant to support a certain [heretical] position.
The conferences' authorities may even manifest a "Stalinist-type psychology” and “dictatorial inclination” which harms the freedom of the bishops in their dioceses.
The German bishops shows for Aguer how an episcopal conferences deviates from orthodoxy, and he doesn’t understand why the Vatican doesn't intervene although there is an "immanent schism, which can only produce bitter fruits and perdition.”
But it's not only Germany, “Situations that were once simply inconceivable are now multiplying all over the world.” Aguer names the Puerto Rico Bishops who, as he suspects, went to Rome to denigrate the “excellent” Arecibo Bishop Daniel Fernandez who then was deposed. Aguer knows Fernandez very well and calls Arecibo Diocese magnificent and flourishing.
The implacable reigning progressivism does not tolerate Catholic bishops and priests, Aguer notices, "This is the problem of 'cancellation.' You get fired, just like that."
