Signaling a straight turn
Good Romans are having trouble
analyzing the current schism. It's a common trouble because schisms are commonly misunderstood.
Basic rule: Schisms are led from the top. Ordinary people are too smart and sensible to turn away from a path that works well, a path that conforms to natural law. Only leaders are stupid and evil enough to turn away; but leaders have the power to put up signs and guideposts that make the turn seem like the only permissible path.
It's easy to see in roads and traffic. When the highway has been following a county road, then turns aside, you have a puzzle.
Polistra wants to continue straight on the county road, but the schismatic leaders have made the unnatural curve look like the 'direct' way. How do you signal for a straight turn? Polistra is trying to indicate her intention, but the signal won't be readable.

Here's a real schism in my neighborhood that shows the full history of schisms.
The current arrangement shows a fully mature schism. The leaders have realigned the corner to ease the puzzlement and hide the reality. You're driving 'directly' ahead on NW Boulevard, and continuing around the curve is clearly the Only Way To Go.
But when you follow the curve, you're suddenly on Assembly. The name of NW Blvd seems to be turning left.
Current map shows how it works. Continuing northwestward, you gradually turn north and you're suddenly on Assembly. The name of NW Blvd continues NW, but the corner makes it seem like a left turn.
This 1912 map shows the original arrangement. No puzzlement at all. NW Blvd continued NW, and Assembly was a definite right turn.
In 1940, though the map is unclear, you can see that the turn is already the preferred path:
And here's the modern again to show how the turn has been recast as the 'direct' way.

Schisms almost always follow this sequence. Consider the history of USA STRONG.
The 1776 revolutionaries were TURNING away from the natural-law Parliament, but cast their TURN as the unavoidable direct arrow of history.
They set up a new government under the Articles of Confederation, which was only a partial schism from Parliament.
Thirteen years later, SOME of the colonies wanted to SECEDE or schism from the Articles because the Articles made it hard for New York to leverage
its small population into maximum power. They created a new system that departed radically from natural and rational government and again cast the hairpin turn as the only direct path.
Fourscore years later, New York robber barons placed their consigliere Lincoln into the presidency. He then SECEDED from the constitution, leveraging the New York version of insecure employment to the whole country for maximum profit and power. The parts of the country that wanted to retain the constitution were cast as the seceders, and Madman Lincoln was then able to satisfy the blood fetish of his New York masters (for a few minutes) by slaughtering 700,000 Deplorables.

Now the Romans are facing a similar problem. Antichrist Bergoglio is TURNING away from God, serving Gaia and her prophet Soros. Because Bergoglio has control of the paving and signage, he's portraying this dramatic TURN as the inevitable direct arrow of history, and the unfortunate Catholics who want to remain Catholic are forced to 'signal for a straight turn', which is an unreadable signal.
