...in rare brotherhood, to declare his papacy a failure.
(yeah, I am borrowing somewhat from Conrad Black. What can I say? He got that part right.)
I would link to some, but there are so many declarations of his failure out there, that I can not link to them all, and it would be uncharitable and unfair to pick a few and hold them up as ridiculous. My advice to them is this: if you want to accurately assess a papacy, wait a century or two.
Michael Voris has a pretty good statement on this.
What can I say? When the man is right, he is right.
