The only thing that will make them happy is the destruction of the Catholic Church and for it to stop reminding the world that Jesus Christ is God, that we are all sinners, and we ultimately face Heaven or Hell. No amount of wishing, hoping, or disbelieving can get them out of this.
For this, the world doesn't want to change itself, but to be led like some mindless army to victory via supernatural means. Jesus didn't do this when the Israelites wanted it and they crucified Him. Similarly, the Church will be attacked in multiple ways, and many Christians will be called to share in the giving of their lives in defense of their God by not renouncing the hope of their Salvation. The world really hates this. The world wants everything hunkie-dorie NOW.
And not just now, but piping hot and JUST how it wants it. Never mind their ultimate good.
So any problem in the world, and any retarded means one identifies outside of this inconvenient thing called reality to solve it, particularly in the ever audacious Catholic Church, and finding imaginary solutions, renders verdict. Of course in this sexed up, immoral, godless stupid world a man who is celibate, moral, in a Holy office, intelligent would seem like a curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge, weirdo freak of yesteryear.
Any wealth the man has is from his personal book sales, and I get the feeling a super large chunk of that profit goes to charity.
HOW DO YOU DEFEND AGAINST IT?
Easy peasy, lemon squeezie:
You simply say, "Well, Jesus was perfect and He was also condemned for things He did not do, and accused of actions and possession against His spoken principles. This man represents Jesus Christ as His vicar, succeeded from St. Peter. Like St. Peter, certain actions may be wrong in certain Popes, and this is never entered into doctrine. Nowhere does the Holy See nor the Catholic Church espouse the practice of denying Christ 3 times, it merely records it. Similarly, the acknowledgement of the need to do things like end starvation en masse, doesn't mean that the appearance of the Vatican is something able to be liquidated and still maintain the actual visible structure and historical residence of the Catholic Church. That would be like asking the Jews to sell their eternal rights to the Temple Mount, and still expect them to hold hope of ever having the Temple again. While the world might not understand the Church, or may disagree with the Church, when the Church speaks, the world listens. That is authority in real life. The USA is absolutely beside itself and amazed at the solidarity of Protestants backing the Catholic Church in the fight against illegal and immoral healthcare burdens against rights and conscience. The Catholic Church, in standing up to evil, has rallied many typical elements which aren't typically laudatory in Her defense.
The Bride of Christ don't take no lip, foo'!".
