QuoteThis is the most logical conclusion for those who have become "Francis-vacantists":

QuoteThose who deem themselves competent to brand him a heretic and therefore not an authentic Pope,

The article is putting forth a straw man as its premise.  That is NOT the position of neo-sedeism.  Here's the basis for neo-sede belief:

The man Bergoglio has been accused by competent authority multiple times of heresy, and has not recanted.  The neo-sedes agree with the cardinals, arch-bishops, bishops, priests, and theologians who have pointed out Bergolgio's heresies, and also agree with St. Paul that after two warnings, we are to have nothing to do with such an heretics, and agree with St. Robert Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church, that an heretic can't be Pope.

So let the author rewrite his piece starting with this premise and he won't come to the same logical conclusion.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"All sorrow leads to the foot of the Cross.  Weep for your sins."

"Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him"
