Some Things You Don't Do

You don't spit in the wind.  these
You don't tug on Superman's cape.
and You don't try to pressure the pope.
“That cardinals, who should be the closest collaborators of the pope, are trying to force him and put pressure on him to give a public response to their publicised letter is absolutely inconvenient behaviour,”...

These cardinals, known as the Dubia, have crossed line.  You don't make a big public stink after the fact.  Discussion and debate was before Amoris Laetitia.  Surveys were taken before the synod.  The debate was at the synod.

Of course, debate and discussion always go on, but to make it public after the document is done, is not done.  And to demand that the pope responds to such rude behavior is too crude to even be considered.

 

I was prompted to add my two cents, after reading the article, in the Tablet, by Sarah MacDonald

"CARDINAL SCHÖNBORN REJECTS CARDINAL MÜLLER'S CRITICISM THAT HIS HANDLING OF AMORIS LAETITIA DEBATE IS 'NOT CONVINCING'"
