The Lidless Eye Inquisition "Exposes the Quicksand at Palm Beach"
In April 2004 the Seattle Catholic reprinted "Catholic Confusion at the Very Top: Overcoming My Resistance to Face the Facts", by David Palm. Originally published by the New Oxford Review, Palm's article presented a series of charges against the Holy Father familiar to anybody who has perused The Remnant or other traditionalist websites: taking a stance on the death penalty counter to Catholic tradition; joining von Balthasar and Fr. Richard J. Neuhaus in perpetuating a "creeping universalism" by allegedly questioning the teaching on damnation; permitting gross disobedience by refusing to exercise discipline; contributing to an "indifferentist" model of ecumenism which denies the need to return to "the one true Church"; giving "honor to heretics" by appearing in public with Lutheran and Anglican bishops; "praying with pagans" at Assisi; encouraging liturgical abuse by permitting female altar-servers and "inculturated" masses at his public appearances.
