Michael Voris, et al have been insisting, since the infamous Synod on the Family, to not criticize the pope. The bishops yes, but not the pope. E. Michael Jones or a "Catholic in Brooklyn" blogger type go further, insisting to not criticize the bishops period.
An INVERTED Conciliar Hierachy
On the contrary, when Catholic priorities become universally and systematically inverted throughout the institutional Church, such that the Cult of God subtly morphs into a Cult of Man, then we know the organizational forces in the hierarchy--oriented vertically by divine design--have become reversed in a downward direction.
Distortion of the Title of Pope as "The Servant of the Servants of God":
Romano Amerio, in his 1000 page book on changes in the Catholic Church in the 20th Century, highlighting the Vatican II conciliar reform in the Church, pointed out the irony of convoluting one title for pope: "The Servant of the Servants of God." (Iota Unum). He argues its meaning has become inverted. Traditionally, this title signifies the Pope as the Chief of Servants God, with the bishops under him also being Servants of God. The conciliar misrepresentation of the title instead portrays the pope as chiefly servant of the bishops, who themselves chiefly serve the priests, who themselves chiefly serve the "People of God."
With that mindset, its not surprising when the conciliar hierarchy becomes INVERTED. What was always held most important (God) now becomes least important. What is now deemed "most important" is the divine-like dignity of man in all his earthly splendor.
It would take a historian and master of theology to adequately disentangle this convolution, but its Saturday night here in Oklahoma and I'm enjoying the late hours of evening, so what the heck, I'll give it an amateur's shot from my Okie Armchair.
Before Vatican II:
Before Vatican II, the monarchical constitution of the hierarchy was practically preserved. The Pope acted chiefly as God's visible representative and Guardian of the Faith, leading everyone beneath him in the hierarchy upwards to Christ in heaven. Going down the ladder, each bishop did the same for his local flock.
After Vatican II:
But after the Revolution took over almost every nook and cranny throughout the Universal Church, a diabolic and systematic reorientation took place. Remember, this happened before in the Early Church with Arianism.
The pope has surrendered most of his rights and supreme authority to a collegial system. The pope now in servile fashion must follow ever-plotting Vatican bureaucrats. For trads, this is an established fact in plain sight. Among some trads however, there's confusion whether or not we can actually discuss this in the public sphere.
Going down the conciliar hierachy--or rather UP the inverted hierarchy--the Vatican becomes subordinate to the National Conference of Bishops, who rule over national diocese's with a psychological tyranny. Their protocols and guidelines are handed down to each local bishop as if they were law (they aren't). Its mind control from the national level.
In turn, the local bishop becomes obliged to invert the divine, hierarchical order of his own local church, answering to a "presbyteral council" that 99% of the time is progressivist.
Following the inversion downward, or rather diabolically upward, the parish priest becomes subordinate to the parish council which designs the liturgy and social ethos of parish life. What the parish council must answer to are the families who expect a "faith community" that is pleasant and socially nurturing for their children, regardless of orthodoxy or adherence to Church tradition.
Lastly, we have the parents over their children, or rather under their children. The old model (2,000 year old model) of Catholic parenthood forming children to become saints, has been replaced everywhere by the liberal worship of children. Its the error of the Enlightenment French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau that man is born entirely innocent, and is most pure in the state of an undeveloped child. That sentiment rules over modern parents' minds. The absolute, preciousness of little children becomes the supreme ideal.
When today's Hierarchy becomes inverted, such that in a very real, practical, and universal way:
Children rule over Parents...who rule over Priests...who rule over Bishops..who rule over Popes..who at times even rule over Christ introducing heretical provisions (cue Pope Francis' official allowance for Divorced-and-Remarried-without-Annulment Catholics to receive Holy Communion), then, drumroll please...
YES, of course, you're darn tootin', every Catholic has a right to publicly criticize if not also resist modernist bishops, or even a modernist pope!
