Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.
It makes one smile how the tepid conservative want us to be excited with Francis' innovations but take offence when the liberals do exactly the same, though in their case with much more reason.
The idea that Francis simply speaks freely because “that's the way he is” and we like him a lot for that, but then fetch our Catholicism somewhere else from more credible sources just does not work. Francis is the
pope Bishop of Rome, and if he spreads confusion the result of this will be… confusion. How surprising, eh, no?
It is entirely logical and entirely predictable that Francis' stupid utterances be now used and abused everywhere. Of both the use and the abuse Francis is the first responsible, because he is the one who systematically made them possible in the first place.
If a Pope is allowed to put in his mouth such unspeakably stupid words like “who am I to judge?” without drowning in ridicule, why should a Catholic legislator not feel entitled, or at least be tempted, to play the same little cheap game? “Because this just isn't Catholic!”, you will answer. Fine. But someone should tell the Pope, and you should say the same when the Pope says it, too.
The newly-born “Francis effect” is nothing but the tidal wave of stupidity, superficiality and heresy now unavoidably following the earthquake of Francis' utterances. This tidal wave will impact with immense violence all the Catholic shores, causing vast damages everywhere and the loss of countless souls.
The Francis Effect is wanted, and it is wanted exactly in those liberal quarters Francis does so insistently pander to. What is surprising is only the lack of shame of the man, who keeps drugging the patient he is supposed to heal with massive doses of modernist heroine, lest he might recover from his addiction to the church of nice and the “salvation guarantee”.
If you want to put it a different way, the entire situation is like Obama going around smoking joints, and with his supporters saying he is being “instrumentalised” by those in favour of the legalisation of light drugs.
Sow Francis, reap heresy, homosexualism, abortion, and every other disgrace.
This, and no other, is the reality of the “Francis effect”.
With every passing month, Francis' little and big sermons reach new heights of stupidity. This time, we have reached full Kindergarten level, and one wonders how it can get any worse than this.
Follow here how Francis reduces Christianity to a mere dispensing machine of blessings in life, and beatitude after life, without any warning to his listeners that things can go in the other direction, too. In Francis' world, heaven clearly is the universal destination. If the worst is scolding, hell is clearly not an option.
Before I go in detail please consider this: it is integral part of Francispeak to never say it to 100%, provided the message he wants to send goes out. This is done to appease the Pollyannas. An old modernist trick.
We are, therefore, informed God may be able to scold us, but not to “slap” or anyway “hurt” us. What about being thrown in the flames of hell, there to be consumed by everlasting fire for all eternity? Does this in any way “hurt” us, I wonder? And when people get sexually transmitted diseases, or sodomites AIDS, or gluttons diabete: what is this, a gentle scolding? Obviously, not everyone who gets a disease or some other big reverse is being punished. In fact, it is often difficult to say whether, when life kicks us in the balls, it is meant to be a punishment, or a blessing, or both. Still, no Christian could ever deny God can punish people horribly already in this life, and punish them in in infinitely more terrible way in the next.
This man has, literally, no fear of the Lord. Not concerning this life, not concerning the next one. This just isn't Christianity, this is feel-good waffle for children in the kindergarten; albeit I can clearly recollect when I was in kindergarten we were told all about heaven and hell, and did not have any problem in grasping the truth and elementary logic of it. Evidently, Francis' adults are more childish than kindergarten children of only some decades ago.
The rest of the linked article goes in the same vein: the only thing God does is heal, console, caress. Nowhere is the other way mentioned. This is an imaginary, heathen god consisting entirely of mercy, and with no trace of justice; a heathen god, therefore, deprived of goodness, because without justice there can be no goodness.
Besides, the concept that putting oneself in God's hand be the harbinger of “maximum security” sounds, in this Kindergarten context, very Protestant. The reader cannot escape a very strong impression every sodomite is saved by simply putting himself, without repenting a bit, in the hands of this unconditionally caressing, never-slapping god. I trust in you, therefore you save me. Those living in public adultery will, at this point, be logically unable to understand why they should be denied communion: hey, they go to Mass every Sunday and are oh so trustful in God and in their good conscience: why should God not “caress” them by coming to them in the Holy Communion?
The article linked to is not a literal reporting of the entire sermon. Yesterday I have read another article based on this, and it pretty much sings the same song. Let me make it clear that I have no doubt that somewhere, hidden in Francis' world, there is some obscure hint that God also metes Justice. But this is not the point. The point is that this heatenish, kindergarten god of Francis is the one relentlessly advertised, and it is simply inconceivable – both because of the choice of words and of the frequency of the message – that this is not exactly what Francis wants.
We notice here once again a method widely employed also in politics: a sermon is made, but in this sermon there is a particularly tasteful “mouthful”, which is there with the express task to make the headlines. In this case, the one with the God “unable to slap us” – so striking because so evidently flying in the face of two thousand years of Christianity – is the desired mouthful.
Let us also not say that Francis is fine because countless saints of the past have stressed God's mercy. Of course they did. But you will never find a saint of the past leading you to believe God is not both mercy and justice. In addition, those past saints lived and operated in a world in which every child of seven had a very clear concept of what hell is, and was very conscious he might end up there one day. This is not the case today, thanks to the army of Bergoglini who have been sabotaging the very concept of hell for the past 50 years.
This works of sabotage continues now from the very top, with the Pope himself making every effort to eradicate every fear of the Lord, every concept of justice, and every possibility of hell: a hell that has already been declared as excluding atheists in ” good conscience”, and could therefore never include those who do nothing more than believe God will take them out of trouble because hey, that's what he always wanted, eh, no?
This isn't Christianity at all. Rather a “recreational drug” for the stupid and the easily self-deluded, making the way to hell so much broader for them as it leads them to believe all roads lead in the end to heaven provided one does such easy things as following his conscience (possibly the easiest thing on the planet if one can shape his conscience according to wish) or, for “maximum security”, “trusting in God”.
Beware of Bergoglism.
Soon-to-be Cardinal Mueller may be a heretic, but one must say he is not one to shun a fight. Compared to Francis or some of his colleagues he might even pass as orthodox, which alone gives you the measure of the state of decay in which the earthly Church – seen in his human component – has sunk.
You will remember the obscene proposal of the Diocese of Freiburg concerning “pastoral care” for public adulterers. Archbishop Zollitsch of Freiburg had to distance himself from the proposal, but the proposal is still very much there. Soon-to-be Cardinal Müller doesn't like that a bit, and rightly fears that if such abominations remain in the public sphere the pressure will build to meet their demands; at least in part, and obviously in a “pastoral” spirit. In case you don't know, our satanical little Kirchensteuer-prostitutes suggest that their pimps, erm, the faithful can be accepted to receive communion if they “in conscience” think there's nothing wrong with… being public adulterers.
How very stupid. How very Modernist. How very… Francis.
Mueller sees, then, very well where the debate is going: “conscience” as the new religion, and he therefore allows himself to point out we already have a religion, and this religion does not allow to take conscience as the measure of right and wrong.
Enter Cardinal Marx (nomen omen?) of Munich and Freising; another one of the “Gang of Eight” and therefore nowadays authorised to feel like a Mini-me of Francis. Marx says that Müller can't stop the debate. It's not clear to him why there should be no debate about fundamental truths of Christianity. Like, hey, the world has changed, bro.
I doubt Müller will manage to bury the discussion under a thick layer of yoghurt. You can clearly see a tendency from the most subversive elements (like Marx himself and obviously Maradiaga, who already talks as if he were the Pope himself) to call Francis as their mentor. Francis has put so many stupid slogans into the world (the “field hospital of mercy” comes to mind) that it is now child's play to say ipse dixit.
We see already here the poisoned fruits of the instancable modernist propaganda of the Bishop of Rome: first he sets the avalanche rolling with the interview on the plane returning from Rio, then he decides to have some Lio, and an extraordinary synod for that; a synod by which the general atmosphere and the expectations created by his own carelessness – or design – will contribute to create huge pressure for “change”; then he leaves his lieutenants to fight it for themselves, remaining himself free to decide the policy that will maximise his popularity among the stupid and the deluded.
I do not think anything good will ever come out of the Synod. The Rhine will try to pollute the Tiber to satanical levels never seen before. In the long term, not even that will serve our German Jezebels: the old-ish people will die anyway, and the younger generation will stay more and more away from an organisation of tambourine-playing old men obsessed with social issues.
