It took me a bit to figure out the Remnant's meme:

Then I realised that people might actually call for the death penalty for people who have committed crimes alleged against the cardinal.

Of course, this will create significant issues for modern Catholics who are trying to adhere to the truths of the Faith.

Such as:

Let's list the problems with this perspective:

  1. Doctrine does not equate with 'modern necessity'.
  2. This is a natural progression.
Fundamentally, if something has changed from a doctrinal stance it has objectively changed.  This person is basically giving the frog in a pot argument (put frog in pot and then turn up the temp).

Dr. Kwasniewski and Mr. Ferrara offer some interesting insights to this latest step in the crisis.

Here is the key component of the new 'teaching':
Consequently, the Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel, that “the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person,” and she works with determination for its abolition worldwide.
The inviolability and dignity of the person is now the supreme rule of the Catholic Church.

This makes sense, it follows from the human centric Novus Ordo, that took its cue from the protestants.

I hope that some people will draw the proper conclusions that this is simply yet one of many such milestones of this crisis - such as the approval of altar girls etc.
