PAUL JOSEPH WATSON -
A Catholic Cardinal who warned that western civilization was living through its “mortal hour” as a result of the masses being transfixed by “vulgar entertainments” has been removed by Pope Francis.
The Pope accepted the resignation of Cardinal Robert Sarah as head of the Vatican’s office for liturgy.
However, the resignation was more of a firing because Sarah was mandated to submit his resignation when he turned 75 and Pope Francis has previously allowed cardinals to serve two or three years past that point.
Cardinal has previously indicated in a Twitter post that he was happy to continue, but the Pope removed him and with it an outspoken conservative and potential future Pope.
Sarah was a powerful voice in resisting the liberalization of Catholicism and has repeatedly spoken out in blunt terms about the problems facing the west.
“What Nazi-fascism and communism were in the 20th century, Western homosexual and abortion ideologies and Islamic fanaticism are today,” said the Cardinal, something the Pope, who all but defended the right of the Charlie Hebdo killers to launch a revenge attack, wouldn’t dare utter.
