S.Armaticus has his, as usual, very perceptive views about what is happening with Creepygate. The article links some “pre-poop” affirmation of Bishop Fellay to Edward Pentin’s very recent interview to Regina.
Both sources indicate, more or less, the same: opposition to Francis (and, by extension, support for the Dubia) is far more widely spread than the very limited number of voices who have spoken for the Four Cardinals would let you believe. Pentin goes as far as to say that as the play is now, it is not unreasonable to assume that very many of those who have not intervened in defence of Poop Francis are, in fact, ipso facto opposed to his position.
I am not Pentin or Bishop Fellay. They talk to a lot of people. They might know more than they can (or want to) say.
However, from my keyboard on the other side of the Continent I cannot avoid thinking:
1. How can it be that there are bishops or cardinals thinking that waiting for Francis to appoint more and more poop cardinals and poop bishops, whilst hoping that he dies soon, is the way to go? Are we really at such a level of dumbness that we believe problems go away from themselves if we hope very, very hard?
2. In the same way as Fellay and Pentin talk to bishops and cardinals, the latter most certainly talk among themselves. If they are nearly as many as the sources seem to indicate (Fellay says up to 30 cardinals; basically instant death for Francis’ Poop-ificate; the number of bishops would then be a multiple of that), they most certainly know it themselves and are fully aware of their devastating strength. Would, then, the smartest thing to do not be this: the issuing of an ultimatum to Francis, with the alternative (however flowery put) between caving in or being declared a heretic?
Whilst right is more important than numbers, two dozen cardinals have quite a different impact than four, and two dozen cardinals backed by 100 or 150 bishops are game, set and match.
3. I understand Pentin’s reasoning: questioning the Pope’s orthodoxy (which is what, all diplomacy aside, the Four Cardinals are plainly doing) is such an extreme measure that all those who consider the Pope unjustly accused would speak out, surely? Well, yes and no. Yes, they do not consider Francis an orthodox Pope. No, there is no indication they would be ready to risk persecution or even inconvenience for the sake of truth. Amoris Laetitia was published in April, and as I write this the bishops and cardinals who have openly criticised it can be counted on two hands. No St Crispin’s Day lot, this one.
We will see how this pans out. Certainly, Francis’ propensity to shoot himself in the foot is helping our cause, and the more nervous he gets, the more mistakes he will make. But I don’t see on the other side anything even vaguely resembling determined Christian troops; and those bishops who decide to shut up now will, if that Francisthing hits the fan, probably decide to keep shutting up in order to “avoid a schism”.
If things come to the point where Francis is officially, publicly rebuked, I expect only a tiny minority to speak against him, and there will no doubt then that all those who shut up are helping him to stay in power. However, if such an open and public rebuke were to happen it would never be a game of numbers: this papacy would be shattered in one thousand fragments, and Francis would never recover from it.
We will not have a Francis declared heretic and self-deposed through his heresy, or a Francis forced to resign to avoid such an event. But we will have a papacy mortally wounded, and unable to recover credibility for as long as Poop Francis lives; which, apparently, even a lot of people in purple and red hope will not be long.
“Creepygate” may merely be Francis’ vulgarity number 3528, but it appears this time the patience of even the mainstream press is running shorter. One wonders why, seen that even the word “c@zz0”, an extremely vulgar expression, slipped as of nothing (thus betraying a long and constant habit) from the mouth of this boor failed to cause anything approaching discomfort.
What has changed now is that the Catholic world has become increasingly more tired of Francis’ provocations, and more and more people start to see him exactly in the way this little effort has described him for now very long: a lewd, ignorant, arrogant, frankly stupid wannabe South American dictator so much out of his depth that it is embarrassing for the Roman cats.
Plus, your garden variety Catholic journalist slowly but surely begins to smell the time in which everyone will be required to have anti-Francis credentials; because make no mistake: no matter how many people follow the Four Cardinals, if the latter officially censor him this papacy will go down in flames in a very, very spectacular manner. Therefore, it is now necessary for the professionals of mainstream Catholic writing to start distancing themselves from the failure of this pontificate, which is now assuming such proportions that it can be easily seen from Mars.
Your humble correspondent hopes to be able to say, one day, that most of the ‘I never liked the man’ people have needed an awfully long time to open their eyes; whilst others, like myself and many other traditionalist, rigorously non mainstream bloggers and writers have seen the fraud of this pontificate a long, long time ago.
Poop (see what I am doing here?) Francis is now in real trouble. The day he will resign in ignominy is, if still not probable, far less improbable than one year ago. The year of mercy has been unmerciful in exposing all the destructive heresy, blasphemy, ignorance, arrogance, incompetence and outright stupidity of this man and his pontificate.
My impression is that, in the years left to him, the man will have to eat an awful lot of that by which he seems so obsessed. He wanted to be the great innovator, but he will now have to battle every day to avoid being remembered as the great cretin. And as he is a cretin, he will do it in the wrong way, with more recriminations and insults and vulgarities, which will have the only effect of causing him to dig himself into a bigger hole.
I still think the foul tomatoes wouldn’t be a sin, though. It’s not really physical violence. Merely defence of orthodoxy.
Poop Francis is in real trouble now.
And not even a Fidel around to be asked for help.
The small picture you see on the left comes from the Facebook page of the German section of Vatican Radio.
It is not only that the picture is uncannily exact. The troubling matter here is that the people at the German Vatican radio would think this is a laughing matter. They seem to think, in a word, that all this Pope-talking-like-a-damn-Proddie affair is a very funny development! And being this a site controlled by the Vatican – where a sarcastic approach to the Pope, like you have on this site, would never be tolerated – it is clear that this rendition of the greatest heresiarch of the XVI century and what could well become the greatest heresiarch of the XXI Century is met with… approval.
I cannot end without mentioning the commenters who praise the initiative. I hope they are Protestants. Actually I think they are, whether they know it or not.
Such is the state of the Church at this time.
Where is the Catholic Trump, ready and willing to drain the swamp of heresy, perversion and utter stupidity?
The leftist, perverted UK Independent has an article in which the Evil Clown talks about coprophagia again.
First, note that with all the problems that afflict Christians, from persecution to the advance of sexual perversion, and himself (he should think about answering the Dubia) this cretin thinks that “fake news” (by now clearly the scapegoat of choice for every Clinton sore loser like him) are worthy of his and the world’s attention.
Secondly, once again he has to evoke strange perversions and revolting images which, I am sorry to say, seem far more familiar to him than would be healthy in any man.
This one is a Pope. He should thunder against homosexuality like countless faithful and saints have done before him, not hammer on strange perversions with which he seems rather obsessed.
What’s wrong with Francis? Can he stay away from coprophagia for a while? Is it too much to ask?
Or is it so, that by talking about this kind of disgusting perversion he wants to “normalise” the perversion he “does not judge”, the one of the sodomites?
Not for the first time, I am led to think that if we were able to get inside the mind of this man we would be traumatised for life.
Father Spadaro (Jesuit, obsessive Twitter-maverick, and told to be “near to the Pope”), has officially proclaimed and promoted heresy.
The quote is this one:
When the concrete circumstances of a divorced and remarried couple make feasible a pathway of faith, they can be asked to take on the challenge of living in continence. Amoris Laetitia does not ignore the difficulty of this option, and leaves open the possibility of admission to the Sacrament of Reconciliation when this option is lacking.
“In other, more complex circumstances, and when it has not been possible to obtain a declaration of nullity, this option may not be practicable. But it still may be possible to undertake a path of discernment under the guidance of a pastor, which results in a recognition that, in a particular case, there are limitations which attenuate responsibility and guilt – particularly where a person believes they would fall into a worse error, and harm the children of the new union.
This is clearly an alternative religion.
A religion in which Christ’s command “may be not practicable”. A religion in which it is always possible to define a “lesser evil” and prefer it to a “worse evil” that can be picked at pleasure. A religion in which the priest is made an accomplice (only for those, of course, who at that level of evil still decide they do need to talk to a priest) in the obdurate sin of the unfaithful.
No, this certainly isn’t Catholicism. It isn’t any form of Christianity, either. It’s the new religion of the adulterers, the communists, and the perverted.
Father Spadaro is either possessed, or perverted himself, or extremely evil. There is no way a sane Catholic with a shred of fear of the Lord remaining in him, and who certainly knows better, would ever go on record with the words above unless Satan had taken, in one way or other, complete control over him.
In Christian times, people like this one were burnt at the stake. With Catholic saints painted (centuries later) as present and presiding over the proceedings as in the painting above from Pedro Berruguete. The painting may be historically accurate, or not. I have no time or inclination to make a research. But it certainly shows how Catholic painters thought in Catholic times.
Pray for the soul of the poor bastard.
Or wait for the retractation if the protests are loud enough. This is the way these people work.
The case of the 19-years old German woman raped and murdered makes big waves again in Germany after a suspect was arrested. The suspect is a 17 years old Afghan who entered the Country illegally, then filed asylum request as “unaccompanied minor”. A precedent for violence the Police hushed up. The national (publicly owned) television refusing to report because the news is apparent only of “regional” relevance. As a Tweet in German says, the blood of this young woman is on Merkel’s hands.
However, is it only on Merkel’s hands? I doubt it.
I read from other sources that the victim was helping in one of those structures where young Afghan would-be rapists are able to select potential victims. I have also read she was the daughter of a EU functionary. None of this might be true, but it certainly is credible, as we have seen in several other cases that women were raped by the same mongrels they were “helping to integrate”.
Stupidity has a price. Individually as well as collectively.
Once again, we see what happens when the brains are switched off and feel-good feeling are the only thing that count. Sowing and reaping come to mind.
Keep going this way, Germany. Keep having your daughters raped and murdered. One day, you will recover sanity.
Oh, the winds of change!
This photo was taken only months ago. In the meantime, the Gay Mulatto has seen his legacy destroyed and his backside all but kicked in the dustbin of history; the smug Englishman was unceremoniously told to resign after the Country told him what they think of him; the Italian bimbominchia (a nickname that will remain attached to him; I will avoid the translation…) received a suppository that makes Brexit seem worthy of a recount, and forced him to go (70% vote attendance, 60% against him; basically a televised rape). The last one, the insignificant chap you see ignored even by his own peers in the photo, has decided that he will admit defeat before he is even defeated.
Only one remains, the German Bitch, in Italy known under the affectionate nickname culona inchiavabile (I will not not translate that, either…). She has announced she will run again next year. I will say only this: make Germany great again!
What do the four mongrels have in common? They all have encouraged and steered the passing of legislation in favour of sexual perversion. It will now take a lot of time to reverse the damage they have done and, unless they and their accomplices repent, I am confident the Lord will find suitable pits in hell for them all. It will take time, but it can be done, and we just had a very impressive (multiple) demonstration of how fast things can change.
We must work every day on the recovery of sanity, and hope that we will see the day when the damage done by the mongrels and their accomplices has been completely reversed. But the mongrels are all gone or about to go now, and this is enough consolation for the day.
The appointments of President Elect Trump continue to surprise. There is a freshness, a bluntness, an utter disregard of the whining comments of professional blabberers in many of his appointments that is utterly exhilarating; Trump’s attitude is most evident, I would say, in the choice of people like Bannon, Sessions, or Mattis.
Mattis’ appointment truly is an example of how much can be achieved if the President does not care of what the MSM will say. I link here to a fairly comprehensive list of Mattisisms that I hope will not only amuse and entertain you, but will also be found instructive.
Please consider this chap is being appointed minister of Defence. I cannot recall anyone remotely similar to him (with the partial exception of our very own Francesco Cossiga, who was more diplomatic and was never defence secretary, though he was undersecretary) appointed to the same office in any Country I have inhabited.
I always hated the pussyfooting, the terror of being considered impolite, the utterly unmanly self-censorship of so many who write Catholic blogs, and seem obsessed with what would happen if their neighbours read their blog and discovered they have called Hillary “bitch” (as an aside, it seems to me this kind of sensitive blogger is the most likely to tell all his neighbours he does, in fact, write a blog; so it’s vanity and virtual faggotry at the same time, and they feed from each other). This pussyfooting is, all too often, the indication of a mentality that either does not understand the stakes, or does not care for them. Every soul has infinite value. You do what helps in contributing to the salvation of as many souls you can, in every way you can. Politeness is, in this context, infinitely irrelevant.
I am sure General Mattis can be very polite if he wants to. But clearly, he also understands when the stakes are high enough that it is time to go the other way. If more of this spirit were present in the Catholic blogosphere, it would help our cause an awful lot.
Keep your politeness for afternoon tea, and call Hitlery a bitch.
Make Catholic Blogging great (again).
