He has figured out that prolife conservative Catholics are now radically immunocompromised to the rise of the ethnonationalist blood and soil fertility cult swill he advocates and is doing his best to foment schism against Peter. Just the other day, Thomas Williams, ex-Legionary and lying baby daddy who works for Breitbart deluding the faithful was passing along the lie that the Holy Father is a communist and approving Bannon for spreading that lie.
