ONCE again we see in reports of his visit to Southeast Asia that Francis says and does things that a pope would never say or do.
This is a good time to consider the “Thesis of Cassiciacum,” which resolves the main stumbling block in coming to the conclusion that Jorge Bergoglio and his Vatican II predecessors are not true popes. They occupied (and occupy), under this thesis, the Apostolic throne materially, but not formally. In other words, their elections were valid but they had, and have, no authority. Under this view, there is no prolonged material break in the line of succession extending from St. Peter.
