Bishop Schneider’s French is slow, but accurate.
The entire interview is interesting, but the real meat on the grill is from 6:20, when the interviewer asks what to do if Francis does not answer the Dubia.
Bishop Schneider’s answer is clear: then it is the Bishops’ job to restore order. Note, here, that the poor man has already abandoned any hope that the two surviving Kitten may do what they promised they would.
This is followed by another intelligent question: will this, though, not engender a schism?
Again, the Bishop’s answer is very lucid, and it is a bomb: we are already in a schism of sort, he says: one in which the schismatics are in unity with the Pope, but not with Christ. What this means is obvious: the Pope is, whilst factually still in charge, in a de facto schism with all his predecessors.
The attacks to corrupt bishops that follows closes with a beautiful statement of Catholicism: it does not matter how many prelates try to peddle a false Gospel, both doctrine and discipline will never change because they are divinely instituted.
The Bishops addresses here a point that I myself, in my little sphere, have tried to make: a false doctrine is not a change in doctrine, a perverted discipline is not a new discipline.
It is important that we get these concepts right, because words are important. You must never engender in those who listen to you the impression that doctrine can be changed or discipline can become heretical. What we are witnessing now is an obfuscation of doctrine and a perversion of discipline, not their modification.
A transvestite is not a woman. He is merely a pathetic fake, a grotesque attempt at imitation.
Francis presides over a Trannie Vatican, insulting the teaching of the Church everyday as it abuses its office and allows countless degenerated to scrounge an existence at her costs.
Thankfully, the Church is indefectible, and She will survive this just as She survived the Arian crisis. An event, the latter, which, having no precedents at all, must have seemed to the contemporaries far more terrifying than even the crisis we are witnessing now.
The truthful Catholics in those times kept soldiering. We do exactly the same.
I welcome President Trump's “Shitholes” comment; and if he has not made the comment, I regret that he didn't.
One of the greatest things of this Presidency is the disregard for the increasingly more oppressive rules of political correctness, driving people to what is pure and simple denial of reality. Most sensible (not sensitive!) people would call, say, Haiti a shithole all right, and the more so when they want to make a forceful point. It needs a PC Libtard to see “racism” where the others see a simple reality. Libtards don't care for reality. They will excise from their consciousness and call “racist” every fact that threatens to destroy the stupid bubble in which they live.
This attitude is preventing us from saying things as they are in so many other areas, and when the language loses the sting the bad behaviour or bad situation is encouraged of perpetuated.
Sodomite, not “gay”. Adulterer, not “in an irregular relationship”. Perverted, not “gravely disordered”. Heretical, not “problematic”. And so on and so forth.
The refusal to call things with their own name (yes, shitholes too) is what has given us a society that encourages sodomy, has rampant adultery, think you can choose your “gender” and allow Francis to go on virtually unopposed and certainly not challenged at least by the clergy.
I look forward to more tweets like this one.
Don't want to be called a “shithole” by the President of the United States?
Try not to be one.
I have recently read, in a book supposedly friendly to traditional Catholicism, suspiciously conciliatory remarks about the situation of Jews. It is probably fitting to remind the reader of a thing or two.
There are no two Covenants in place. The call to conversion that Jesus made was directed to the Jews just as well as to everyone else. In fact, in the very first years after Our Lord's Resurrection it was considered normal for the first Christians to consider themselves Jews who – in contrast to the others – had recognised the advent of the Messiah promised to them. This feeling was so strong, that St. Peter himself – erroneously – thought that a Gentile would have to convert to Judaism in order to become a Christian (error which, as we know, was opposed and defeated by St Paul at the First Council of Jerusalem).
There is no mistaking the fact that Peter and all his contemporary taught it a grave danger to his Salvation that any Jew would not recognise Christ as Lord and Saviour. Things haven't changed just because we have a Jewish friend who is awfully nice.
The other way of seeing it is this: whilst Judaism is the matrix out of which Christianity arose, a Jew is simply one who denies the divinity of Christ and of the Holy Ghost. If you don't see in this a very grave offence to the Holy Trinity, I must question your Christian credentials.
It is, obviously, reasonable to hope that, among these Infidels – make no mistake: a Jew is not a Christian and is, therefore, an Infidel – more will be saved than among Infidels of any other religion, because of the special bond that once existed between the chosen people and God. However, we must not think that a Jew can ever be saved qua Jew, that is: in his religion, and we must make every prudent effort to convert those around us who follow this now outdated, surpassed persuasion.
This does not mean aggressive Proselitysm, nor does it mean harassing people who do not want to listen to us. It means that we clearly formulate the tenets of our faith and, when the time is right – say: when we have an interlocutor willing to listen – make clear to the Jewish friend or colleague the risks of his position.
Whilst we recognise the Davidic persuasion as the nearest to Christianity, we must also profess that this persuasion is deeply wrong and offensive to God, and clearly outside of the Christian world.
This might seem superfluous, but I thought that it had to be said, as I have the impression that here and there there might be Catholics who even consider themselves conservative but think that it is, in a way, “OK to be a Jew”.
Everyone who is not a Christian is conversion material.
There are no exceptions.
As we are living in unspeakably evil times, let us imagine that the unspeakably evil happens:
Saturday, 13 January 2017, Pope Francis solemnly proclaims ex cathedra the truth of the Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide Protestants tenets. He orders all Catholics to adhere to the new proclamation, which he very formally declares infallible in exercise of the Pope's Extraordinary Magisterium.
Can you say, then, that the Church is a fraud? Certainly not. The Church cannot be a fraud, because it is de fide that the Church is the Bride of Christ and if we declare that false we must declare the whole of Christianity false, which is an absurdity considering that the Church, sound theology and sound reasoning tell us the contrary.
Are works, in this case, not necessary anymore for salvation? Certainly not, as what was true yesterday must be true today and if I do not believe today what I believed yesterday it means that I have lost the faith, and that's that.
If, therefore, the Unspeakably Evil happens, what conclusion shall we draw?
That the Church still exists. With all her rules, traditions and institution.
And that the Sea is vacant.
This is the correct understanding of the situation. Any other interpretation leads ad absurdum, because it contradicts Catholic teaching either in one way (the Pope has the authority to change doctrine) or in the other (a pope who officially, solemnly proclaim heresy has not, ipso facto, made the sea vacant).
Obviously, such a Pope would still be, factually, sitting on the throne of Peter. But it would be only this: a de facto situation which is the fruit of abuse and usurpation, as if Napoleon had proclaimed himself Pope. We would have the duty to refuse obedience to both the usurper and everyone asking us to help him in any way, shape or form.
If the worst happens, there is still a simple, logical, coherent explanation fully in line with Catholic doctrine.
Do not lose your sleep, therefore, thinking what would happen if the Unspeakably Evil came to pass. The Church that has protected sixty generations before you will protect you, too. But she will demand that you believe in Her and in Her Truth, and in Her Bridegroom and His Promise, too. To abandon the Church when you have most need of Her (and She has most need, in a sense, to be defended by you) would be the height of pride and arrogance. But you will stand on the side of Christ and His Bridegroom, no matter what.
I have read somewhere today that the Evil Clown has invited the faithful to silence during Mass, because when one is silent one can “listen to his heart” and, more importantly, “to the Holy Spirit”.
I will gloss over the inanity and banality of the words, probably inedible by a smart child of five. What I would like to point out is the subversive message hidden behind the stupid platitudes.
If I can claim to have the ability to oh so emotionally connect to the Holy Spirit, it might not be long before I claim to “recognise” a message that goes against Doctrine. Being thus persuaded of the goodness of my heart and my Direct Line to the Holy Ghost, I can easily persuade myself of the legitimacy of pretty much everything, like living in adultery and even daring to sacrilegiously present myself at the Communion Line.
What Francis does – in that stupid, sugary, childish way of his – is to encourage his (un)faithful to the very epitome of the sin of Pride: thinking that, in the end, I know better than God.
As you laugh about the arrogance of this man and the travesty of Catholicism he peddles to the Reprobates, please reflect on the many similar ways in which your local priests might try to smuggle the same impious message.
Reality check: I cannot listen to the Holy Ghost like I listen to music, nor can you. The Trinity speaks to me through the Church given to me for my salvation. The Bride talks to me every day through her beautiful, bimillenarian message.
Do not listen to Francis. Francis is an ass, the only thing you can learn from him is how to become unbearably stupid, supremely boring and diabolically subversive. Listen to the Depositum Fidei instead, and learn to know and love Church teaching. Therein, not in your own delusions, lies the Holy Ghost.
Yesterday, Oprah Winfrey enchanted the Libtarded crowds by spouting an amazing string of third rate platitudes in front of the local Feminazi, EnviroNutcases and assorted perverts*. Apparently, it was enough to move people to tears. To tears, I tell ya!
What better candidate for the Dems in 2020 than this remarkable, remarkable woman? She ticks all the boxes, too!
Please, please, dear Libtards: give her the Nomination for 2020! We have a lot of precedents already: after Trump she does not need to have political or military experience, and after Hillary she does not need to have a Pimmel. Oprah's victory would, in fact, be immediately expropriated by Hillary herself, The Bitchy Pathfinder! Why is Oprah not 50 points ahead?
However, Oprah alone would not be enough for the Dream Ticket 2020. What we need for VP candidate is what the Democrats do so well: give the position to someone who has been the wife of a President, because Dems are people who like their women utterly self-made.
Yes, Michelle is what I am talking about!
Imagine the powerful impact of
in the ticket! The Democratic base would be so energised! Hollywood actresses would be unable to refrain their tears of joy as they all together join Oprah in conquering the White House, attracting the Presidency through the sheer power of their visualisation. The Black Glass Ceiling would crush in 2020 pieces! Oh, joy!!
Please, please do it, dear Libtards! Do not listen to the Democratic establishment, and give these two courageous women the Nomination, and may the Bern with with you !!
I for myself could not ask for better. I think it would be a-we-so-me!
Only one wish I would have.
That Mike Pence be, after two successful terms as VP, allowed to run for President, and run the Country as the perfectly decent guy he is.
*Includes the Hollywood producers and actors not yet exposed.
The Evil Clown has published a kind of hippy list of proposals for the new year. It is, as you might expect, the usual, sugary nonsense the Dalai Lama or Barack Obama might say. The first point is, rather predictably, “build bridges, not walls”.
From the socioeconomic – and, well, patriotic – point of view, it is not only allowed, but mandatory and praiseworthy that a nation preserves its prosperity and prevents indiscriminate immigration. Smart Countries will, in fact, import those who are useful to them, and will not allow them to become part of the fabric of the Country if they know that they bring a mentality not compatible with the values of their host Country: the Germans and their Turkish immigrants are a valid example, or at least were before the Age Of Madness.
More importantly, and from the religious point of view, it is our duty as Christians to avoid exposing our Continents to the evil influence of false religions, particularly Islam. As a Christian, you cannot wish Christianity to become only one religion among many or, more probably, undergo a conflict with Islam merely because you want to feel good with yourself. The defence of the Christian fabric of the West is a duty of all Christians, not an option for the right-wing fringes.
The USA in a way, but much more obviously Europe are now in such a state that Christianity is no more than a thin veneer in their social fabric. We are now in the defensive, and we must preserve what has remained of Christian values from both internal and external assaults. This state of things will remain as long as we have dumb Papacies inspired by dumb Vatican II. When the Church is strong again, she will be able to reassert her role in Europe and to vigorously expand abroad. For now, everything must be done to protect Christianity inside, and there is no need to say that preventing massive waves of Infidel immigration is the mere start of it.
Build walls, not bridges.
And pray for the end of this Pontificate.
The Commie Cardinal, His Homo “Close Friend” And The Merciful Protector Of Commies, Perverts And Thieves
Cardinal Maradiaga is, apparently, not having a gay old time as accusations of personal enrichment have reached him even as his “close friend” auxiliary bishop is accused not only of being inverted, but of having given Church money to his “intimate friend”, or friends as the case might well be. Link on Gloria TV.
One wonders how could Matadiaga not know of the gravely depraved tendencies of his “close friend”. One wonders also, if you allow me the thought, about how close this close friend is to the Commie Cardinal. One can also not avoid thinking that the inverted bishops might know things about his Cardinals that should rather remain in the closet.
Let our be yeah be yeah here: if a Cardinal has a close bishop friends that turns out to be a homo, it is perfectly legitimate – nay, it is sane – to suspect that: a) the Cardinal might be a homo or even an active sodomite, and/or b) that the “close” friend is an agent of the homo Mafia who can avoid being kicked out because he knows compromising facts about the Cardinal.
Maradiaga has, today, resigned, certainly in the previous knowledge that the Evil Clown would refuse to accept his resignation. But if he thinks that this is the end of his troubles, he is very badly advised.
What, therefore, do we have? Cardinal is a potential thief, his close friend and auxiliary bishop appears to be a homo, and the homo also appears to use Church money to… you imagine that very well.
Francis, the Merciful Protector Of Commies, Thieves, and Perverts, has come to the rescue for as long as he can.
I can't even manage to be angry, as the Evil Clown has now shot himself in the foot once again.
I Can't wait for the guy berating us again, starting from tomorrow, for being decent Catholics.
I could not trust my eyes as I first saw that Cardinal Brandmueller has given another interview about the Dubia.
Seriously, can you believe this guy?
I have not paid the man the compliment of reading further once I realised what the Cardinal has not done: officially correct the Pope and demand that he retracts or faces the call for a council meant to depose him. But I have perused the article in order to be sure that the correction is not contained therein. I intend to treat every future interview from either him or the other still living kitten in exactly the same way. It's more attention that they deserve.
At this point, it seems fair to me to say that Cardinal Brandmueller is quite happy with his actual position: trying to pose as the orthodox guy and trying to live the rest of his life getting as much press exposure as he can out of his ridiculous, unanswered, half-baked attempt at orthodoxy, even as he has no intention of doing the only thing that would justify him approaching a journalist. He is, truly, like the man who wetted his lips and never whistled, but wants to be praised for his whistling courage anyway.
This behaviour is extremely vain. Vain and shameless. Vain, shameless, and utterly inexcusable.
The Cardinal should, once it is clear that even at his age he is too cowardly to really do anything, at least have the decency to shut the Francis up and live the probably short rest of his life in shame, rather than seeking publicity as if he was a star of conservative Catholicism or even a halfway decent Prelate.
Such a cowardice, and such a vanity, and at such age.
Really, it is no surprise that this disgraceful V II generation has led us to utter chaos.
Two days ago I wrote a blog post stating, without any evocation, that I wish to see Francis dead in 2018. Resigned if needs be. But ideally, dead. Not – it is worth repeating this – because of personal animosity against the man, but because of the evil he is inflicting on the Bride of Christ, and the sustained spitting in the face of the Bridegroom his papacy daily represents.
Only two years ago, such a post would have been followed by a handful of angry comments about my lack of charity, the sweet Peter on earth and such like rubbish. Mind, I would have deleted the comments, but they would have been there in the first place.
This time, nothing. After two full days.
Your humble correspondent draws from this the rather linear conclusion that this papacy has now become such an obvious disgrace, such a permanent threat to Catholic orthodoxy, that the number of those who recoil at the idea of wishing the death of the Evil Clown is dwindling rapidly as his work of destruction becomes evident to the most obdurate Pollyannas around.
By the by, I also notice that for months now I do not recall receiving one single comment stating that Francis is well-intentioned but badly advised, or surrounded by wolves, or suck like nonsense.
This Pope is so stupid, and at the same time such an enemy of the Church, that he is possibly unwilling to see that he has gone too far, and made his relentless attacks on Catholicism so transparent, so evident as to deny their very aim: the deception of the faithful.
Still, the dumbass is so stubborn, and so childish, that he cannot refrain from his constant heretical propaganda. He truly seems a child continuing his tantrums out of sheer spite, and to show to himself that he can (he has, in fact, very weak parents; or bishops as the case may be).
When there is nothing to keep a spoiled brat in check there will be a lot of noise, confusion, and broken toys. But every protestation of the parents notwithstanding – that the child is merely “vivacious”, or “strong-willed” – everyone around clearly understands that this is a spoiled brat, and a stupid child, not kept in check by his weak, disgraceful parents.
Let me say it once again: this man has gone so far in his War on Catholicism that I am rather ready to run the risk of a Tagle or Schoenborn becoming Pope than having this old, lewd ass further defacing Holy Mother Church.
I seem to remember that Winston Churchill once made a joke to friend, at a funeral, reflecting that it is never those whom we wish dead who die.
But then again, at times he must have had his wish, must he not?
Update: 2 further Bishops have joined the original three
Three Bishops, from very remote parts of the Christian world, have published an official declaration of allegiance to the Depositum Fidei and condemnation of novelties, even if proposed or supported from the very top. There is a clear, but implicit criticism of the Pope. I cannot post the links now but they are everywhere.
My enthusiasm is somewhat limited, but this is certainly a positive development anyway. We now have three bishops instead of one openly and solemnly criticising AL's fake theology.
Three Bishops and
four two Cardinals over the entire Catholic world, with many others certainly choosing to shut up out of pure cowardice.
None of them, mind, calls the Pope a heretic. None demand that he recants or resigns or is deposed by a Council. Francis is implicitly criticised (by the Bishops; the Cardinals haven't gone beyond “doubting” as far as official pronouncements are concerned), but not in the least openly challenged. No one even openly accuses him of willingly spreading heretical, and be it that materially heretical, statements. Saying that something is wrong without addressing what this logically entails is like the doctor telling the patient what his body is doing, but stopping short of informing said patient that he has cancer.
The laity remains firmly in front in the battle against this Papacy. The bishops remain largely, with few exceptions, silent. Most Cardinals are also silent, with the faint echo of a timid meowing here and there.
Yes, this is a positive development as every time a bishop speaks and says something Catholic it is ground for rejoicing. But several bishops' conferences have expressed, albeit in less solemn terms and without the veiled accusations to the Pope, the same concept: rules can't change, and that's the end of it. Therefore, this declaration isn't earth-shattering. It is good. But we need more.
We need for our bishops and cardinals to call a heretic a heretic and let the fireworks begin. Reaffirmations of doctrinal points, or even implicit criticism of their subversion, without an open accusation and denounciation of the Pope who is clearly behind them aren't terribly helpful, merely a good start.
The surgeon does not excise a tumor by telling it that it is bad. He takes the scalpel and gets rid of it.
We need for our bishops and cardinals to do their job and call for either a retraction or the scalpel (the council). The Church has cancer and we can't just limit ourselves to state that this is different from being in rude health.
But at least, this statement goes beyond the faint meowing of the (dead or living) Kitten Cardinals.
The year now begun follows one of the most astonishing years I was given to live up to now. In fact, I often felt several decades younger as Donald Trump’s 2017 echoed Ronald Reagan’s 1981 (happily, minus the attempt on his life) in the way the world received a strong message that there is a new sheriff in town and a lot is going to change.
At my age I am accustomed to think not in years, but in historical phases spanning several, and at times very many of them; and it seems to me that a very heavy pendulum may, slowly, have begun to swing the other way.
On environmadness we are clearly advancing fast, and the end of the infamous Individual mandate is the end of one of the greatest threats to Christianity at least in the US. Already the battle about “Merry Christmas” signals a different approach and the beginning of a counteroffensive. A booming US economy will, hopefully, help Trump to consolidate his position by the Mid-term elections (I am happy with a stronger majority in the Senate for the judicial appointments; it is very rare that a president gets to keep both House and Senate, so don’t get your hopes too high that this might happen).
In my eyes, though, there are two events that might precipitate, with God’s grace, an acceleration of this pendulum in 2018.
The first one is the sudden resignation and departure of at least one of the SCOTUS Justices and its substitution for a Justice in the mold of Neil Gorsuch. Bader Ginsburg was born in 1933, Kennedy in 1936, Breyer in 1938. You do the math. Add Sotomayor (born 1954) with alleged severe diabetes issues. This is, I think, the most important front in 2018 as no one knows (though everyone can hope) that the comfortable majority that had Gorsuch elected (if memory serves 54, which is more than the Republican senators, fake or authentic) will survive the Mid-Term elections. God willing we might get an even stronger base, but you never know.
This is, I think, the most important development I can think for 2018, because a conservative majority in the SCOTUS will change the face of the US and, in time, the entire West. Put together abortion, sexual deviancy and protection of freedoms and you see what planetary effect a safe Conservative majority on the Supreme Court will have. In fact, I will go as far as to say that the stakes in the Supreme Court vastly overshadow the other fronts on which Trump is fighting (from security to economy), because with some luck he can set up the Country (and the West) for decades of sanity.
The second development I hope for 2018 is – and there is no kind way to say this – the end of the disgraceful pontificate of Francis. Whether he dies or flies off to Argentina for his own private or health reasons I do not really care, but I would still prefer for him to die already in order to avoid (at least as long as Benedict lives, which I think won’t be long) the vaguely obscene spectacle of three living present or former Popes. No, it’s better for him to kick the bucket straight. One can hope that one of his allegedly frequent attacks of rage might do the job; but hey, Deus providet.
Note here that there is no guarantee that any successor of Francis will be less atrocious than him, and the thought of a young Francis II (like Tagle) is really disconcerting. However, I am – like, I think, many of you – at such a point of exasperation that I just wish the old, lewd rascal gone, come what may. As we do with every rascal, we wish the man salvation and, making an effort, we even pray for it. But boy, let’s hope he dies soon.
There are, of course, many other things that could be repaired in 2018, but then there are always many of those. The two objectives above seem the most important to me.
Join me in praying for success on both these fronts. And please don’t be a limp-wristed whino: people die, and they die when the Lord has so decreed.
You wishing that they go out of the picture for a greater good – not out of hate for the person, but out of love for Christ and His Church – is the Catholic thing to do.
I never liked the expression “God Emperor” referred to Donald Trump; I never did it because, whilst having its obvious roots in the Roman Empire, it does sound vaguely blasphemous to these Christian ears.
However, Trump truly is a guy that seems to keep doing what he does so well (not only running a country, but enraging snowflakes whilst having a lot of fun in the process) with great energy even as a President.
It’s funny and ferocious. It’s sound common sense and ferocious mockery. It’s what other Heads of State don’t do, because they are too dumb and conformist for that, and could never pull it off the way Trump does. Trump is an oasis of sanity in a world run by conformist, incompetent nincompoops, the obvious product of the Age of Madness in which Western democracies have descended.
Dumb voters produce dumb leaders. It’s the bane of democracy.
Trump’s religion is Christianity, not global warming. This would be good enough in itself. But what is even funnier is to see this man having a laugh at the stupid priests of the new religion of non-existing “consensus” and even more absurd (an oxymoron is there ever was one) “settled science”, and enjoying “triggering” all those pothead and assorted retards of the vast Losers’ Galaxy.
Trump has remained Trump. He has not transformed himself into another tofuhead spouting platitudes. He keeps attacking, keeps provoking, and keeps having fun as he teaches Libtards how to think or, more likely, enjoys their inability to do so.
We need more of this on our side, too. The Catholic blog world keeps being too nice, too afraid of “offending”, too much concerned with polite discourse and with the gentlest rules of engagements. Our enemies don’t return the favour. Many more of us should forget the white gloves and start trolling these people relentlessly. If a President of the United States can do it, so can a humble blogger.
Thank God for this exceptional man. God willing, 2018 will bring not only more winning, but a lot of fun, too.
In the second part of my blog post about the sad, sad Libtard Christmas (which is perfectly natural: how can Christmas without Christ be a joyous occasion?) I will touch briefly on an ugly, despicable, hateful dyke at some point in her life considered a comedian.
This very sad individual takes a religion she despises and elect herself as the new Christ, claiming to know who goes to hell and who doesn’t and, possibly even worse, declaring a kind of LiBDykeJudgment on the entire humanity.
Now, let us forget for the moment the intrinsic stupidity of the woman’s ideological stance and let us reflect on the wording itself. If the statement of the woman had been issued from an obvious Christian background, the meaning would be clear: you need to pray, because you’re going to hell unless you repent. But this cannot be in the mind of the female in question, because the concept of Christianity is obviously something she was never introduced to. No, what the sad dyke does is to hiss and spit venom in the most brutal way she knows how, oblivious of any contradiction – as well as the stupidity and arrogance of the statement – as she does so.
What sad, sad being these Libtards are. Look at this woman: her life is obviously shit (old dyke seeing her world crumble around her: go figure), and the pent-up frustration is discharged with extremely hateful tweets showing all the hatred she has in her blood.
As Trump would say: “sad, it’s so sad”.
I wish Rosie O’Donnell salvation. I pray that we will, one day, enjoy together the endless, unfathomable joy of the Divine Presence. But in order to get there she certainly needs to repent for the hateful, arrogant, stupid mockery of Christianity she tweets around, to start looking at the dyke in the mirror and to be filled with righteous horror at what her life, and herself, have become.
Pray for the poor wretch, because that’s what we are. Don’t have much hope that she will avoid hell, because she seems intentioned to get there straight.
