Meet Francis, The Presbyterian Pope

“When the Lord shows us the way, who are we to say, 'No, Lord, it is not prudent! No, lets do it this way'…

“The Holy Spirit is the living presence of God in the Church. He keeps the Church going, keeps the Church moving forward. More and more, beyond the limits, onwards. The Holy Spirit with His gifts guides the Church. You cannot understand the Church of Jesus without this Paraclete, whom the Lord sends us for this very reason. And He makes unthinkable choices, but unimaginable!

Francis, the Bishop of Rome, May 2014.

Every time we think that, surely, Francis cannot sink lower than he just did with his latest statements; and every time we are forced to change our mind; albeit, optimists as we are, still thinking that now, surely, it cannot get worse? Alas, with the Destroyer nothing seems impossible, but his conversion to Catholicism.

Francis' most recent statements are so brazenly heretical, that no follower of Francis can have any excuse anymore, or be in any kind of doubt, that to agree with Francis is to deny Christ.

It has always been an obvious corollary of Christianity that Truth cannot change. Truth cannot change because God cannot change. God cannot change because every concept of change is in the most blatant contradiction with God's perfection.

If Truth changes, the Gospels have gone off and must be discarded like those strange things we single men find, every now and then, at the bottom of the fridge. If Truth changes, not one single words of the Bible, be it Old or New Testament, can be relied to have the meaning and import Catholicism traditionally attributed to it. If Truth changes, dogmatic statements like the Creeds have no authority anymore, because change is evidently not compatible with dogmas. If Truth changes, Jesus is a fraud and a charlatan, because his emphatic statement that He is the Truth flies in the way of this Truth being, given time, obviously untrue. If Truth changes, Christianity does not make any sense, and we can happily go back to adoring trees, natural phenomena, or fantasy creations who spend their existence plotting and fornicating in some distant but rather pleasant place.

All this escapes Francis, the Presbyterian Pope.

His statements become more and more brazen; his defiance of the basic Truths of Christianity is now made in the open. If Satan were Pope, he would speak exactly as Francis does: sowing confusion, sabotaging Christianity and denying Truth every time he can, with a frequency that now knows no interruption, with an insolence that now knows no boundaries.

Read again his words above. He is saying, for everyone who has ears to hear, that there are no limits to the novelties he wants to introduce. He is preparing unthinkable changes. More and more, beyond the limits.

These are interesting times for Michael Voris, for sure.

The new Papal mantra is as clear as the sun: the “Spirit” is speaking, (to him, of course: the Humble Anointed) and both he and, obviously, we must not “close the door” to it. If you accept this, you have ipso facto thrown Christianity away from the window, exactly as Francis does. I suspect this strange “spirit” speaks to Francis through wine or grappa, because sober people who use their brains know all I have explained above, and would never have the blasphemous insolence of thinking Truth is at their disposal with no better excuse than this mysteriously blowing wind of the “spirit”, and or that Truth would have any need to “move forward”', “beyond the limit”, “onward”. He expresses himself with the trite rhetoric of a motivational speaker at the salesmen convention of some smartphone producer.

If Francis does not “hear the spirit” whilst drunk, which is not to be excluded, then he must most certainly be listening to Satan himself, who is whispering in his hear how very popular he will become if he decides that hey: the Spirit has spoken: who are we to judge? And lo and behold: the way is open for any heresy and any blasphemy.

Or perhaps Francis has, in an extreme effort of Clericalism, appointed himself the new Sibylla Cumana of Christianity. God speaks to him, and tells him “we must change everything, Buddy. Glad I am able to speak to you, because your predecessors were either completely, or almost completely deaf. Myself, what a cool guy you are!”

The insolence, the shamelessness, the sheer blasphemy of this man is breathtaking. Open your eyes, read his statements again, and realise how serious the situation is. Now it's simply Francis against God.

It is very clear that this Pope – be it because he is stupid, or evil, or both – is a direct threat to the salvation of Catholics, and a further threat to the salvation of other Christians. He is the Public Enemy Number One of Catholicism, a menace compared to which even Obama appears an amateur.

It is as if the Brigate Rosse had, in the Seventies, reached all the top positions of the Italian institutions; but few would have objected to it because hey: you don't criticise the President, the Prime Minister or the Presidents of Camera and Senato.

The Pope himself is working every day towards the destruction of Catholicism. The Enemy is among us and has, if you allow the comparison, reduced King Theoden to his willing idiot – or to his evil idiot – as his minions, like Grima Kasper and Wormtongue Maradiaga, whisper to his ear words of betrayal and surrender.

I have not lived those ages, but it seems to me that the threat represented by this man is slowly rising to the level of Pope Liberius, or Pope John XXII. True, Francis is not thinking – at least for now – of making any heretical wannabe “dogmatic statement”; but It is obvious the unthinkable is not really unthinkable for him, and I wonder what would be worse. In the case of an heretical “dogmatic” statement we would know the Pope is actually not such, and we could happily ignore both the statement and the man; whereas in the case of a subversive Pope you are stuck with the reality that the Pope is evil, but he is still Pope; a reality not many, in these times of poor instruction, can cope with.

Francis is, as the October Synod slowly approaches, throwing away the mask. He will get into it telling to everyone that “the Spirit is speaking” in some mysterious way known to him alone, but we must not keep “the Spirit” (read: Francis' heresies) out. Bar a divine intervention, it is clear to me he will have his way. The choir of the helpers will be deafening. The sheep will willingly baa. Most bloggers will applaud. The secular press will be delighted. The world will embrace him. The Church will receive a wound worse still than during the French Revolution, and perhaps almost as bad as the Arian heresy.

Once again, realise the genesis of Francis' heresies: this man is entirely secular in his thinking, in his talking, in his outlook. He is a Socialist with a white habit. He will trample everything that goes against his agenda of Socialism for the world, and popularity for himself.

To Francis, Christianity is an excuse. He isn't more Christian than Obama. Let us say it again: I doubt he believes in God. He certainly has no fear of Him.

You have no excuses: it's Francis or Christ.

Pick your side well.

  1. Mundabor, is this your way of saying you’ve gone sedevacantist? Just curious.

  2. it is christ and the one true mystical body of christ that i cling to-not the blathering of the bishop of rome-this one i mean.god help us!!vatican 11 have their man in place all right!our lady of fatima pray for us.god bless .philip johnson.

  3. The second quote above is just plain scary.

    The first, as I read it could be taken either way….and I’m not keen on either way type statements either. Ambiguity is also scary.

    The first could be a complete contradiction of the second or it could go hand in hand with it. The first could mean…if God/Christ said do it this way…we can’t change it. Or it could mean if God/The Holy Spirit wants us to do it that we (ie a new way) we can’t argue with that.

    The second is appalling.

    • The first statement means “I will not be stopped by those who say I am being a dangerous idiot”, and the second means “whatever I do, even the unthinkable, it is the Holy Spirit who wants it”

  4. Of course at the beginning of the Synod The Bishop of Rome will maintain that the Holy Spirit inspired him to say that the Catholic Doctrine won’t ever be changed , but that the ways to apply it concretely in the Church’s daily life ( the famous ‘ pastorale ‘ ) could be adapted differently to the many existing cultures , and by doing so the Church can keep abreast of the times. God will be only merciful and charitable , and everyone will have a chance to be saved . The ‘ boiling potato ‘ of Doctrine will be transferred to the single Bishops’ conferences , and to them the Bishop of Rome won’t probably deny anything because the will of the Spirit wants more ‘ collegiality ‘ – actually , it was Its will already since Vatican II , but the Popes in these fifty years hadn’t clearly understood . I’m afraid the few really Catholic clerics will not be able to resist the impact of the majority and in front of them there will be a terrible choice : either to obey or to leave the Newchurch by defecting. There are around here in Italy strange reasonings : some ( willfully ) confuse the Pope’s indefectibilty with impeccability , others even say that to have this Pope is positive , because the true Saints , by means of their obedience , can show more easily their sainthood (!). We’ll have to prepare literally to every possibility . Go figure , some ex DC want ‘ santo subito ‘ Giulio Andreotti , and the canonization of Paul VI and – rumours say – JP 1 is in the air . To keep a good Catholic sanity of mind in this situation is no more a certainty.

    • I do not see why defecting should be a choice.
      They will simply refuse to obey.
      I am sure a number of them will.
      They will helped by bishops and cardinals helping them as they can, and waiting for better times.

  5. ” If Satan were Pope, he would speak exactly as Francis does”. It’s hard to disagree.

    “.. the threat represented by this man is slowly rising to the level of Pope Liberius, or Pope John XXII”. No – this time (the past 60 years), and this current threat to the life of the Church and the Faith of the simple Catholic – to the salvation of souls – is far, far worse. Orders of magnitude worse. The comparison to these Popes seems an unfair one.

    Francis will never make an heretical dogmatic statement, against which he can be tried. He is a modernist. He will confuse, and skirt, and divide and undermine and rot the Faith from within, as will his successors, until Our Lord has mercy (the real kind) and ceases the punishment.

  6. “These are interesting times for Michael Voris, for sure.” Yep, I wonder if Mikey’s ‘don’t publically criticize the Pope, write him a letter’ idea is working out for him now? I wonder how many supporters he’s lost in the last couple of months? He lost me when he made that idiotic request to act like a damn fool cult member.

  7. Ubi Maria, ibi Ecclesia

    Mundabor, I must agree with you. Since you mentioned someone whispering in his ear – as he was announced on the balcony I had a sad impression that something was very wrong, that it was not as it appeared. That is all I dare say. May our Lady protect us all as we pray for the Vicar of Christ and cling to Holy Mother Church.

  8. Will the upcoming synod end up being *informally* called Vatican III?

    Since reading Harvesting the Fruit’s recent account of how J23 made up the ‘flash of light’ of inspiration for V2 right after his election, I’ve been thinking two things:
    – J23 was a conniver as much as any politician, rather than merely being a deluded liberal
    – Francis may have been patterning his whole worldly career as a clergyman after J23’s example. Francis even made up his own flash of light that purportedly told him he must overcome his reluctance at being pope.

    Therefore, “Vatican III” would be the ultimate monument to Francis’ gigantic ego.

    • Well, V II was an ecumenical council and this one here won’t (it will be very interesting to see those who are invited to take part), so I don’t think V III slogans will make the rounds.

      What I think will happen is the “celebration” of this Synod as the “work of the Spirit”. This has, in fact, begun already.

  9. He’s not a Presbyterian. He’s an unbelieving, atheist Jew.

    • That’s another valid assumption, paradoxically of course.
      Unless he holds fast to his Koran, in which case there would be another hypothesis…
