Fundamentalist Protestants and Reactionary Catholics: Brothers Under the Skin

Scott Eric Alt notes:

I have noted something quite interesting in the last few days. Among the most extreme of Traditionalists—I mean those who are speculating that Francis may be an anti-pope—there has been a tendency to defend this position by saying, “Well, of course, we’ve had heretics in the papacy before who have taught error.” Then they proceed to cite the *very same* examples that anti-Catholic Protestants always trot out in order to refute papal infallibility, such as Pope Honorius. Thus does Pope Francis Derangement Syndrome make strange bedfellows.
