A non-catholic publication has a non-catholic article about the Amazon Synod. No link, obviously.
The picture, however, says it all.
The caption: “Isidoro Jajoy, a shaman from Colombia’s Inga tribe, blesses people in Bogota Aug. 14, 2019, during a preparatory meeting for the October Synod of Bishops for the Amazon. (CNS/Manuel Rueda)”
Very near to the “shaman” is what can only be a nun, in a reverent gesture as she is receiving the so-called “blessing” from multi-coloured Isidoro.
My take is that all the present, including the nun, are Catholics ready and willing to have a representative of some savage cult – who, in order to remove all doubt, is also dressed like a savage – give them some sort of “blessing” in order to experience the alleged connection with the earth of the cult of the savages, or something of the sort.
It is too appalling for words, and no polite words can really describe the prostitution of Christianity that is happening here, and which the nun in the foreground so crudely and shamelessly represents.
These people are selling our religion to the cult of earth, the approval of the world, and the rituals of savages. They are led by a number of bishops, and you can be assured that neither the nun, nor the other present, nor the bishop or bishops at the event will offer any apology for this act of implicit apostasy – or, at best, religious synchretism – that comes from thinking that a savage cult can improve Catholicism in any way, shape or form. And may their ignorance be a partial excuse for the uninstructed people out there – some of whom might simply not realise the meaning of what they are doing – the nun and the bishops certainly do not have any.
I’ll put in a polite way.
Where is the Inquisition when you need them….?
Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia appears directed towards prompt retirement once the age limit has been reached.
Honestly, I can’t wait.
There was a time when Chaput resembled a decent Catholic and was, actually, often quoted for saying the right thing. Many bloggers, including yours truly, wrote appreciatively about him.
But Chaput was one of those strange V Ii animals who, with age, start to resemble a chameleon. Very much a Benedictite during Benedict’s reign, he began to amp up the social justice tone soon after Francis became Pope. The first one or two times I had a “what the heck is going on” moment. Later, I understood that this one was merely another product of the V II school of thought, with a finger permanently in the air, and all too ready to follow the wind.
I don’t know what excuses the Archbishop told to himself, but it is clear now that they did not obtain the hoped result. Francis veered so much to the left that no amount of heroic contortionism could suffice for the red hat.
The fact is, that whilst Chaput was one of those contortionism specialists V II so lavishly produces, at heart he was still a Catholic. He would dab in leftist political issues and indulge in the rhetorical talking points of the secular society, but he would not compromise on the basics of his own religion. Therefore, he became one of those “neither flesh nor fowl” Archbishops who manage to please only the press with their easy headlines (most recently, against “gun violence”; as if guns were violent…) even as they enrage good Catholics and are considered mediocre helpers by the bad ones.
No red hat, then, for Archbishop Chaput. Not even as token “conservative” (as far as Francisconservatives go) so that Francis can prove that he cares for (fake) “pluralism” of opinions.
We have no need for bishops who confuse Catholics picking and choosing what they want to defend of the tradition handed down to us. They perpetuate the confusion, are a very poor help for people to keep their faith, and largely give the impression that even those who appear “conservatives” need to bow to the tenets of the new world religion, like those of social justice whining, illegal immigration and gun control.
I for myself prefer that Francis has no token “conservatives” who conserve very little and very badly. Let him show his ugly face to the world in the open. When God wills, this test will pass; but those like Chaput do not do anything to help the recovery of sanity, they merely spread more confusion.
Good riddance, Archbishop Chaput.
It’s so sad the contortionism didn’t work.
The satanic America Magazine has gone full homo with an article titled, if you can believe it, “the Catholic case for Communism”. No link.
I have perused the extremely stupid bloviations of the author of the article (may the Lord have mercy on him, though I have my doubts) and would like to make a point or three of my own in the time I have at my disposal.
- There is no “good communist”. Even in the case where a person might think he is moved by the desire to help the suffering world, Communism is godless at its very roots. Therefore, a person who embraces communism has been infected by the same evil. If I want the end of the suffering of the baby seal but do not believe in God, I am not good, in that I lack the fundamental ingredient of true goodness. What I have is merely… fluffy feelings. A Communist, who embraces a demonstrably evil, ideologically godless movement, is much worse than that.
- The desire to see the end of economic inequality is not goodness, it is envy. God has made rich and poor, and Christianity has never condemned the rich qua rich. The desire to put an end to economic disparity is, again, a godless endeavour. By the grace of God you are born rich. By the grace of God you are born poor. By the grace of God you are given those opportunities that allow you to, if you so wish, improve your condition. But always, a Christian recognises that he must not desire other people’s stuff. To all of us, God gives those graces that are good for us. We do not resent the graces given to others, we are grateful for those given to us, be they material (like financial prosperity) or immaterial (health, beauty, intelligence, resilience, inventiveness etc.). Communists are envious people first, second, third, and last.
- Communists are no labourers for peace, nor are they agents of economic justice. To depict them in this way shows a complete ignorance of the root of both true peace and true justice: Christ. Communism has brought death and devastation without end. It had to be so, because a godless “religion” must perforce transform itself into a killing machine as its devotees will have all the determination of the Christian without any of God’s goodness. In Italy we had one of the most atrocious examples, as it is proven beyond doubt that, towards the end of WWII, Communist partisans killed as many anticommunist partisans as they could, in order to make a Communist revolution easier in the unstable phase that would follow the end of the conflict. Make no mistake, those partisans killing other partisans did so because they followed their godless religion, and “wanted a better world”. Come to that, you can say the same of Dr Goebbels, too…
- Catholicism and Communism do not have a “complicated relationship”. They are, literally, like the devil and the holy water: totally antithetical. To even suggest otherwise indicates a total lack of faith in Christ. The continuous attempt of the article to minimise the evil of Communism and try to discover similarities is the work of the devil.
I could go on for much longer, but firstly I do not have the time, and secondly even perusing the damn article made my blood boil, so I will leave it at this.
Communism is of Satan.
Those who don’t see it are of Satan, too.
I was reading this article about a tele-conversation between Jordan Peterson and FrancisBishop Barron. let me tell you first that I am not a fan of the first, and keenly dislike the second.
In the interview, Bishop Barron says something extremely disquieting, unworthy of a priest and outright creepy. Speaking of the way to assist the sinner and help him to repent, the FrancisBishop states:
“We have to accompany people all the way down [to the bottom before they can ascend],”
I have checked this part in the video, and he does not retract, or even correct, the statement. Actually he doubles down, in that he makes clear that he really intends this damn “accompaniment” in the damned Francis sense.
It is impossible to stress strongly enough how utterly and completely wrong this is. This is the satanic vision of a Church that sees Herself as a kind of gentle nurse, staying with you as you sink in a pit of drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual perversion or whatever that is, perhaps gently encouraging you to “grow out” of your way, but still making clear that the nurse is there watching you as you insert the needle.
Just a second after Peterson had (with a surprising petulant voice, I must say) complained that the Church “does not give hell” anymore to the faithful, Barron replies with a concept that is the most apt to accompany the sinner all the way to hell under the pretence of mercy; after which, every pretence to also give some strong warning can only be a travesty, as in the nurse who watches you as you insert the needle and then says to you that what you have done is… quite suboptimal.
Let us keep the metaphor alive, and let us say that the role of the Church is to slap the drug addict in the face, so hard that his head goes round and round for a good quarter of an hour; then have the slap followed by a vivid description of hell; then round everything up with another massive slap, ad abundantiam, so that the message remains.
This is why the Church excludes from communion public concubines and those in mortal sin. It’s Her way to make your head go round and round for a quarter of an hour, so that you get the message.
I am sick and tired of these damn, effeminate nurses. When I was a little child, we children were intimidated at the mere sight of the priest, walking around in his cassock, tall and solemn like he is Pharaoh. Why were we? Because we knew that the man was the very embodiment of what we knew to be unshakeable truths of life: death, judgement, and the atrocity of hell.
As we grew up, we had around us priests we did not wear a cassock, would or could not be seen as the embodiment of any authority, and probably did not believe in hell, either. We did not respect these weak, little men. We saw them as useless losers, unable to even do their job. We knew they were expected to be leaders of men. We saw that they had reduced themselves to … nurses.
A priest cannot escape giving his sheep a strong warning about hell. Hell must be the cornerstone of everything he does, because helping his sheep to avoid it and the only reason why he has the job in the first place. By all means, let him talk a lot about Incarnation, Redemption, Salvation, and the life of grace. But let him always, always point out to the only thing that counts in life: avoiding hell.
Barron is not part of the solution. He is part of the problem. He should stop brown-nosing Francis and, as they say, get a pair. Perhaps, one day he might, who knows, even become a worthy bishop.
A pretend “catholic” magazine (no link) has an article of pathetic excuses as to why Francis is so terrorised of his own people that he is not planning to visit Argentina any time soon.
In pure hack style, an entire people is insulted in order to prepare you for the news that they hate the Pope: egocentric, arrogant, bloody know-it-all is how they are introduced to you before telling you what they think of the Evil Clown. What they think is highly predictable: leftist, and “even” (on which planet do these people live!) “not Catholic enough”.
You don’t say…
These people are, obviously, uninformed, the hack hurries to let us know. They haven’t read his documents. No shit, Sherlock! As if a practical, working man had time to read the endless blabla of the Evil Clown to know what a tool he is, and his almost daily proclamations weren’t enough.
And woe one of the practical, hard working people should tell him something imprecise. It makes the entire nation uninformed, see?
At this point the attempts to defend Francis are becoming almost more ludicrous and pathetic than Francis himself. So many people have leant out of the window defending his subversive work, that they are now forced to desperate attempts at PR for a man that no PR agency in the world could ever save from ignominy. Nor does Francis understand the lesson, and tries to soften the tones or dial down his own anti-Capitalistic, anti-Catholic propaganda. No, he is just as arrogant and self-centred as the fake catholic hack accuses the Argentinians to be.
Francis’ Pontificate has had, up to now, two distinct phases.
The first is the Wheelchair Phase: basking in the approval of the masses with stupid gestures like paying for his own hotel and embracing every wheelchair in sight. This could not go on for long, because – as your humble correspondent predicted years ago – at some point the stupidity of the man would be enough to squander the immense patrimony of goodwill given to a Pope.
When this happened, you saw the other Francis, and the Pram Phase started. Uncaring of the ferocious criticism levelled at him from theologians, professors and simple people, the man reacted by increasing the frequency and the tone of his anti-catholic interventions. It is fair to say that by 2016 we were clearly in phase 2.
But this man is truly, truly stupid, and a third phase might be coming upon us soon, courtesy of his immense childishness and lack of intellect: the Amazonian Phase. In this phase, we are supposed to go looking for savages, asking them what their cult of the forest and their dialogue with the trees can teach us about God, that Christ somehow forgot to tell us. There must be, deep within the forest, a Special Revelation that wasn’t revealed to us up to now, and that we will all have to follow lest we are deemed “ossified”. What wonderful new tenets this Second Revelation will bring is easy to see already: married priests, rabid anti-Capitalism, faggotry all around, and a general understanding of sexual matters very much in line with the one of the above mentioned tree-worshipping savages.
Please, God, make the man die soon. No, not resign, because after the traumatic experience of the Three Tenors I doubt we could survive the Three Popes without extensive, collective brain damage.
Please, make him die. Repentant, if You so decree, and I wish him salvation with all my heart still. But please, make him die.
Please, make him die today.
I think many have learnt the lesson already.
I have written just yesterday a post wishing, like so many times in the past, that the Lord may take out the Evil Clown as soon as may be.
Alas, it wasn’t to be yesterday. But we can hope.
In the meantime, yesterday the news was published of the appointment of seven (read: seven) women to the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
I understand the Congregation now has 16 members; of whom five Cardinals, fours Bishops, and seven women.
This will be fun.
Pope Evil never ceases to show how much he hates the Church. Every day, he thinks how he can demolish a piece of what She is, and substitute it for a piece of FrancisChurch, a satanic mixture of arrogance, incompetence, corruption, social envy, faithlessness, homosexuality, paedophilia and, clearly, feminism.
If this man could become a dervish, or a shaman, he would do it.
Just to spite you.
What can the remaining faithful do against this scourge?
Remain faithful to the truth that has always been taught. Nourish yourself from the immense patrimony of Church tradition. Pray every day that this disgrace may cease to do damage today, by death or conversion (whichever comes first, but please today). Add this latest innovation to the list of things that need to be reverted back to sanity when the Evil Clown finally (as they say in Italy) stretches his paws. Do not accept compromises and and keep fighting every future Pope who, under the pretence of getting rid of the most extreme forms of FrancisMadness, keeps some of his “innovations” in place and continues the wrecking of the Church, albeit in a more intelligent way than this idiot is doing. Pray more, and do penance. Reflect that this man is the way given to you by Providence to actually, by His Grace, save yourself by way of sheer contrast, no matter how many will merit hell by following him.
Most of all, reflect that his V II predecessors, including JP II, carried the germs that have now given us this satanic disease.
This madness will have an end when the root of the problems is eradicated, and the root is the Second Vatican Council.
Every day, our Lord shows us the slippery slope originated by thinking that the truth can be “updated”, and that the Church can or should be “adapted” to the times.
You start with John XXIII, you end exactly where we are now.
If this cretin is to have a function, it should be this: the mass realisation that such a scale of evil would never have happened, if V II had not opened the door for it in the first place.
Die soon, Pope Feminist.
The only good you do is an involuntary one, and it is to remind Catholics of the beauty of the faith you have betrayed.
Athanasius is a pious Bishop in the time of the Arian heresy. The controversy is raging, and our Athanasius is deeply afflicted by it.
He would like for this to stop. Alas, it seems that even the Pope is on the wrong side. Certainly, the vast majority of his peers are. Some say, ninety percent.
What is a pious bishop to do? Denounce the heresy and go against the Pope?
He would be excommunicated, don’t you know? He would be forced to go into exile. He might even be killed!
And the schism, the schism! The Church would be torn asunder! And for what? There is obviously no chance of prevailing. An open conflict would only consolidate the heresy, make it even more official!
The numbers are just not there, says the good, pious bishop to himself. It will never work. He would only be doing the work of the devil.
And then there is the matter of the disobedience. He would be disobeying the Pope! How can a Bishop disobey the Pope? This can’t be right, surely? Surely?
And so our good, pious Bishop Athanasius kept praying, and did nothing. Well, he uttered here and there some words about this or that issue; but in the essentials, he did nothing. The unity of Mother Church must be preserved, you see.
Let us put everything in the hands of the Lord.
He will sort it out.
Say it again?
Are you sure?
You are saying that Athanasius did, in fact, exactly the contrary of what I have stated?
Openly fighting heresy, not fearing excommunication, exile, threats to his life? Appointing his own Bishops? Not looking at all at how many were on his side, because Christ was on his side? Not caring one bit whether the fight between right and wrong would cause a schism, because it is infinitely preferable that the Church is right than that the Church is united in heresy?
Are you sure?
Oh well, I suppose the book I have just read, History of Arianism, Francispress, 2019, foreword by Cardinal Cupich, must have been somewhat inaccurate….
Matteo Salvini, the Home Office Minister, Vice Prime Minister and de facto strong man of the Italian Government, has seen a strong increase in support at the European Election.
This is relevant not only for the obvious political implications concerning the authoritarian project called “European Union”, but also because it gives a very clear idea of the power Francis has in Italy, that is: very little.
The background: during the electoral campaign, Salvini stressed the Christian and Catholic culture of the Country against the dangers of you-know-what. He was seen holding a Rosary. He even entrusted the Country to the Blessed Virgin. Not entirely unpredictably, he was savagely attacked by Francis’ hounds. Defending Catholicism is now seen an Uncatholic. There is no doubt on earth – and no one doubted in Italy – that Francis was, and is, openly against Salvini.
In a Country with still an awful lot of Catholics, you would think that Salvini would be punished at the ballot box. You would think so, because 1) Salvini’s electorate is just the one more likely to be linked to Catholic values, and 2) there was at least a perfectly valid alternative to Salvini, sending pretty much exactly the same message on the whole if you don’t like the EU in its present form.
Well, guess what: the good Italian people have, collectively speaking, told Francis what they think of him and of his one-world caricature of the Faith, deciding to support and make stronger the very same man the Vatican has so strongly attacked. And if you read the Italian newspapers (and know a bit about Italian politics) you know that this is not only an EU affair: as of this morning, the balance of power within the Government has clearly shifted, and Salvini is even more its numero uno. Well done, Frankie dear!
It gets worse.
God knows Salvini isn’t a model Catholic by any stretch of the imagination. In the presence of a Catholic Pope, he would be in an extremely difficult position. But the fact is this: correctly, the good people of Italy have recognised that even Salvini is way more Catholic than the Pope.
Francis is finished. He is finished as a Pope because no sane Catholic respects him, and he is finished as a figure of influence because even those only vaguely culturally Catholic just don’t care a straw about what he says.
The only ones who agree with Francis are those who don’t need him, and to whom he can be of no use: environuts, third-worldists, and assorted atheists and enemies of Christ.
Keep sinking, Evil Clown.
It will be a joy to watch.
I would like to say two words about the controversy raised by a Mr Akin’s answer to the letter, mentioned here many times, inviting the Bishops to declare Pope Francis a heretic and depose him, unless he recants from his many heresies.
The point that Mr Akin makes is that Pope Francis cannot really be called heretical, because the tenets of the faith he so manifestly denies are (merely!) infallible doctrines as opposed to dogmatic truths. AKA Catholic does, as always, an excellent and very charitable work of dissection of this point.
My point is, building on his reflection, a different one.
No other generation of Catholics (at least before V II) would have even dreamed of having such discussions when deciding what the appropriate course of action is. Nor would they have cared of what this or that canonical text says. They weren’t blind. Therefore, they could look at reality when reality was staring them in the face.
When Pope Marcellinus sacrificed on the altar of Roman gods, they did not wonder what canon law states should exactly happen in that exact case. They did not quibble about the fact that Marcellinus had not denied any formal dogma, “merely” contravened a commandment. They did not try to walk around, above, below and through reality trying to find a way allowing them not to call reality for what it is.
They had faith. They acted on it.
I have stated many times here, and repeat today, that I do not care a straw for the technical, canonical law definition of what a heresy is, because this is not what my salvation depends upon. Heretic is who heretic does, and in the common parlance and common sense (and in reality, which is so much broader than the quibbles of theologians) Francis is a heretic, because he goes head on against the truths of the Church.
On this, I think we all agree, Mr Akin included. It follows that the letter to the Bishops makes perfect sense, because it is a perfectly realistic reaction to a reality plainly in front of us.
The absurdity of the legalistic denial that Francis a heretic is easily demonstrated. Let us imagine that Francis would promulgate a modification of the canonical rules on heresy, stating that a Pope can only be proclaimed a formal heretic if he solemnly proclaims his heresy dressed in a Muslim garb, on a Friday, from the top of a Minaret, at least 100 feet high. Let us, further, imagine that Francis would proclaim that Muslims and Christians worship the same God, and he did so solemnly, dressed in a Muslim garb, from a Minaret, 90 feet high. Would then Mr Akin, and all the other FrancisQuibblers, say that Francis is, therefore, not a heretic according to this or any other definition?
Reality comes first. A heretical Pope is staring you in the face, with a middle finger raised against you. If you don’t see this you are part of the problem.
The first duty of the bishops is towards Christ and His Church. Even if the instruments of canon law did not allow (which AKA Catholic shows not to be the case) to act in case of manifest heresy, the obligation to act would exist anyway. The Church has always acted according to the principle that where the legal instruments at the disposal of the clergy are not sufficient to do what is necessary to do for the good of the Church, ecclesia supplet, as we have seen in the case of the SSPX or, more to the point, in the case of Marcellinus.
That such discussions take place in the first place is a grave indication of the degradation of the sensus catholicus all over the West.
We will be remembered as the people who allowed a clearly heretical Pope to be manifestly heretic day in and day out, for years, whilst discussing his intentions, his translators, his moods, the atmospheric conditions inside aeroplanes, the cultural differences with Argentina, his grasp of English, Italian, Latin, and Spanish, and his digestion.
Open your eyes, for heaven’s sake.
A heretical Pope is staring at you, his face full of hate for us and the Church, with his middle finger raised against you.
This is no time for quibbling.
The incoming World Youth Day in Panama promises to be a fail of epic proportions. Facing with the necessity of having to admit the scale of the problem – probably because it sounds better to find some excuse beforehand than during the event -, the guy in charge told us something of earth-shattering importance: it’s because young people “in Europe and North America” are at school.
You don’t say?!
Some questions come to mind:
- If the genial FrancisOfficials did not know school is open, how can they claim they know the first two things about youth?
- If the FrancisOfficials did knew school is open, why would they encourage the youth to skip useful school days without necessity?
- Schools are closed in “North America and Europe”. What about Central America, that is: Panama and surrounding Countries? And what about South America? Brazil, or Pope Francis’ own home Country, Argentina?
- Let us go back to the old (and, if you ask me, wrong anyway) World Youth Days of JP II’s and Benedict XVI’s rather inglorious Pontificates: were they held with schools open? If yes, how come they attracted (wrongly, as I think) huge crowds? And if they were held with schools closed, how is now suddenly smart to spend a lot of money for people who need to go to school?
I think the truth is much simpler than that, and does not require a long reflection, either.
No one has a use for Francis’ satanical exercises in heresy and demolition of Catholicism. The real Catholics abhor him. The fake Catholics ignore him. All the others are now just embarrassed by this old, lewd guy.
And oh, before I forget: the logo on top is the official logo of the initiative. It truly looks like a serpent about to swallow the Cross.
These people are of Satan.
Cardinal Wuerl really must think we are all stupid.
Confronted with the evidence that he knew about the allegations against Cardinal McCarrick as early as 2004, he now claims to have… forgotten about it at some point after 2006.
Let us see all the way in which this is atrocious.
Firstly, it is a blatant lie: you just don’t forget that a Cardinal – and a US one at that – has been credibly accused of abuse.
Secondly, if it were true it would show the astonishing hardness of heart of a man for whom a Cardinal being accused of child abuse is something of so little consequence that it gets forgotten.
Thirdly, if if were to be true it would prove that the man is really dumb, not being able to connect dots and observe the man in his own environment- the two must have met fairly frequently – even after being informed of his proclivities. At that point, the eyes of one who wants to see would be wide open, and I can’t imagine that other credible sources were not available to him.
Theregore, the man is either a liar, or an evil man, or a simpleton.
Two and three are, however, obviously absurd. The truth is that the man who now claims forgetfulness is the one rumoured to have been nicknamed “Donna” in the Seminary. Do I see a pattern here?
This pathetic denial is beyond disgraceful. Who does the man think he is, Pope Francis? And by the way, was he not supposed to resign? Has he announced the date of his departure? Or has he… forgotten?
I can’t follow all the details about all the Cardinals now in trouble, and that for sheer lack of time; but if this guy has lied to the authorities in a high-profile child abuse investigation he might soon be swimming in a sea of excrement .
When he resigns, may I suggest Father Guarnizo as his successor; yes, this is the man Wuerl persecuted for explaining to a couple of lesbians some facts of life, and who had to move to Russia because, clearly, Wuerl and his US colleagues had a well-functioning memory at that time.
Watch out, Donna.
This may well be, as far as the job is concerned, the last nail in your shameless coffin.
Great news from the otherwise predictably stupid document closing the predictably stupid Synod: the official FrancisCertification of Catholic Internet content is in the works!
This is really, really funny. The Catholic Fagarchy currently in power plans to reveal to all Catholics worldwide which sites are officially certified as “FrancisCatholic”. It is not known yet whether pictures of naked men will have to be there (the involvement of Fathers Rosica and Martin has not been detailed), but there is no doubt a substantial amount of FrancisGayness will be a requirement for the not-so-coveted certification.
Aleteia, Patheos, Crux and all the other rosewater “wannabe Catholic” sites – which are correctly Catholic only by mistake, or on occasion of important festivities – will, no doubt, proudly show their “FrancisCertificate” in a prominent spot of their homepage, thus outing themselves as toxic to every Internet surfer sincerely interested in Catholicism after a short period of orientation about the Catholic sites available.
We – those who take Catholicism seriously – will soon have our own “Not FrancisCertified” logo, also prominently displayed on our homepage. Ideally, some Gaynisterium at the Vatican will run a list of sites and blogs officially considered “fake”, thus greatly increasing the prestige of those authentically catholic sites and blogs therein contained. Not sure it will happen, but one can hope.
This will be great, great fun.
Really, the Gayrdinals and Gayshops have shot themselves in the bra with this. If they call authentically Catholic sites “Certified Catholic” they will have to explain why those same sites relentlessly attack Francis & his high-pitched troops of Gay Deceivers. If – as it is far more likely – they don’t, they will expose themselves as fake, subversive and, most of all, horribly stupid to all those really interested in Catholicism.
Look, dear Gayrdinals: the time when people cared a straw about what you considered Catholic has long gone, and it has gone exactly because of your demonstrated, appalling lack of Catholicism. As things stand, being “approved” by you means being suspected of paedophilia or, at least, sodomy by the right thinking crowd.
But you don’t get it, because you live in a stiletto-plagued, Catholic-free zone.
So go on.
Put us in some “condemned list”.
Make my day.
And in the end, he did it.
Francis broke the last taboo of political discourse and called his Catholic enemies friends or enablers of Hitler.
I thought calling “walls” un-Christian was the bottom, but the man somehow manages to find a new low every couple of weeks.
For the record, populism in various guises gave us Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. It also gave us, in a way, Joan of Arc. But in the end, it is not about labels.
The populist movement we are witnessing now is the result of artificial, bonkers policies which a limited cabal of elected politicians is trying to impose on their voters. These policies are so out of touch with common sense, so imbued of a mixture of kindergarden do-goodism and surrender (for a price) to globalist enterprises that it is no surprise at all that, at some point, the voters start to wake up and react to the madness.
They also see very clearly where the interest of their alleged “betters” lie. In Germany, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder accepts an extremely well paid job for a company controlled by Gazprom. In the UK, failed wannabe fag Nick Clegg cashes in his check with Big Globalist Brother and takes a job as PR Honcho at Facebook. The elected politicians will ruthlessly lick the boots of big corporations, preparing a golden retirement for themselves whilst they ruin our Countries and threaten our Christian Civilisation. Merkel, always the hypocrite, says when she retires she wants to open a restaurant. We shall see.
Francis does not get this, because he is dumb. He has strained all his scarce neurons in his youth learning a destructive ideology and is now unable to see past it, not even after decades of failure. And he hates you, he hates you as a Catholic with a hatred I bet not even five and a half years of insults can convey.
You are the Hitler, Frankie dear. You, not we, are the menace to Christian civilisation. Leave Trump, Salvini and Orban alone, do us a favour and retire back to Argentina, where you will be able to play armchair revolutionary all you want until Satan comes by to collect you.
Hitler, my foot.
You will need some prayer before seeing this. It is the astonishing tale of satanic cruelty, perpetrated for decades, to deaf children in both Italy and Argentina, by the same priests shuffled from one Continent to another and allowed to keep abusing children wherever they are sent.
Besides the astonishing evil showed by Don Piccoli, even in his now apparently rather deranged state, what stuns here is the concrete possibility that these abuses are continuing to this very day, and the even more probable possibility that they have been occurring within the 20 years of the statute of limitation, with the Italian justice inactive and the Vatican (this means: Pope Francis) actively covering this up.
Concerning Francis, the cover up appears to be confirmed by a letter from Archbishop Becciu, who states he has discussed the matter with him, with measures being examined.
In pure Francis-style, nothing happened.
Francis can, in this matter, not saying that Becciu did not inform him properly. He spoke with emissaries of the victims himself, with pictures and witnesses proving it.
One perfectly reads the mind of the Evil Clown: past investigations covered by the statute of limitation and no new investigations currently ongoing, ergo: who cares a straw if children have been atrociously abused up to a few years ago and possibly are still abused.
Who is he to judge?
Pray for the poor children. Reflect that it is only the advancement of cures for deafness that allowed them to denounce the abuses of which they were victims.
Pray, in your charity, also for the criminal priests involved and the Evil Clown who clearly protected them. We will also go to our judgment one day, and we do not want the devil to get one more soul than God has decreed he should get.
And now if you excuse me, I feel sick.
I might have lost something, but last time I looked the Attorney Generals of the States of New York, New Jersey and New Mexico had announced a sweeping investigation concerning all the activities of all the Catholic dioceses in their own State concerning the dealing with abuse cases. I do not doubt that more States will follow.
I wonder if Francis is so stupid that he does not understand that at this point there is nothing he can do to stop the road roller. However, Francis’ problem is now not only one of understanding, but one of complicity.
As the various investigations involve and (not unlikely) destroy people like Wuerl, “Bad Tobin” and Farrell – all of them prime candidates for the road roller; all of them Cardinals; the last two given the red hat by Francis! – more and more people will be tempted to ease their burden with both the US justice and the public opinion by revealing the involvement of the Vatican in the cover ups, and the indirect encouragement of illegal behaviour put in place by looking the other way and pretending it never happened, as it was obviously the case with Francis and McCarrick.
Furthermore, if (and I am eagerly awaiting the day) things go so far that RICO charges are brought against several Prelates, it is very reasonable to assume that the one or other will start to sing like a canary bird just to avoid dying in jail, revealing everything about a net of protection of homopaedopriests straddling the Atlantic Ocean and going all the way to Rome. Even a man as stupid and as far away from reality like Francis would, at that point, understand that he is finished as a religious figure whether he abdicates or not. I wonder whether the likes of Paglia and Coccopalmerio enjoy diplomatic immunity? And what happens to Francis is he abdicates and comes back to be a normal bishop? Will he be arrested and estradited to the United States as a member of an organised criminal organisation?
Be it as it may, I see a huge road roller now starting to move; and whilst it will take years before it has completed its work, the fallout will start impacting the Vatican very soon. The investigations will provide wonderful career opportunities for several AGs, opening to them a possible path to US Senate seat, gubernatorial appointments, perhaps one day even more! There is no way the States involved will let this fall to help the liberal narrative or in exchange of some short-term favour. This are the investigation of a lifetime.
Francis, who was so stupid that he went on record saying “I will not say a single word on this” after Vigano’s accusations and surrounded himself with obvious homos like Ricca and (make no mistake) Paglia and Coccopalmerio, will find it very difficult to persuade anyone that he is anything better than a miserable, godless scoundrel. He dug his trench himself, now it will be very difficult to get out of it; the liberal press may try to let the scandal go away, but with several AGs working on this the probabilities are very little that the road roller does not roll directly over Francis’ belly.
The road roller will very likely flatten this Pontificate to a thin sheet of excrement.
I wonder when Francis gets it.
I’d love to see his face when he does.
This shocking photograph is from the big, fat, nuCatholic FrancisCircus called the “world meeting of families”.
No less than a Cardinal is giving no less than the keynote address.
Look for yourselves.
This is where the “dialogue with the world” ends. This is what happens when “aggiornamento” means allowing homos to enter the Seminaries. This is the unavoidable outcome when families decide that the best thing to do for them is to stay away from clergymen of every colour. This is the result when rabid pro-homo speakers, themselves wearing the habit, are invited to speak to such events.
Burn, FrancisChurch, burn.
We, the Catholics, will look at your destruction and stoke up the fire that consumes you.
Because we know that the Church is Indefectible, and when the thick strata of mud of almost 60 years of V II (now topped by the stinking manure that is the current pontificate) is removed we will see again the radiant, wonderful, Church that Christ established below it. As hard and as beautiful as a diamond, One and Holy as She has always been and will ever be, ultimately untouched by all the strata of mud (or manure) that evil men may throw over Her, as they have done often in the past and will do at times in the future, until time ends.
This stupid bunch of homos think they can persuade us that the Church has changed, that the diamond is now a vulgar stone painted in rainbow colours.
Let the picture above tell the story of what fools they are.
I didn’t have a single abusive priest or nun in 12 years of Catholic education. This horror has ownership, and the deed’s many names include Wuerl. And with Monday’s “everybody is to blame” mea non-culpa from Pope Francis, his name is on it too. Wuerl needs to resign. And the church [sic] would be better off with two retired popes and a new man absolutely dedicated to supporting the reformers, not suppressing them.
But the issue I would like to comment on today is not the details about Cardinal (for how long?) Wuerl and Pope Francis’ at the very least least stellar incompetence and stupidity.
It is the fact that five and a half years into this disgraceful Pontificate, the stupidity of the man has managed to turn against him the very icons of the secular culture whose approval he always sought. The man is the Anti-Midas: if he touches gold, it becomes shit.
The man is so stupid that he had the gall to denounce a culture of abuse and coverup in Chile, after being very publicly a part of the culture of coverup until weeks before his denunciation, and not after months of ferocious criticism. It is not only that his hypocrisy is mind-boggling; it is that his incompetence, and the incompetence of the people around him, makes a Banana Republic seem Switzerland.
When the scandal exploded, Francis did what he always does when events overcome the ability of his little brain to function: he shut up. Then he decided to still say nothing, but left the Vatican PR office to pen the most unbelievable press release, centred around the concept that only a minority of the claims were after 2002 and the Church is doing her job all right on the whole, thank you very much.
When the outrage was heard on Mars, and the fact that the Pope was still shutting up was angrily noted on Saturn, he released the Manifesto of the Banana Republic of Francislandia; which, not entirely surprisingly, stated that the remedy for Church abuse is “more solidarity”. It is like a Marxist seamless garment theory: however shitty we are, the cure for that is Socialism.
Hey, there is too much war and Capitalism in the world. This is why our priests are bad.
A snippet, chosen at random, if you don’t believe me:
Together with those efforts, every one of the baptized should feel involved in the ecclesial and social change that we so greatly need. This change calls for a personal and communal conversion that makes us see things as the Lord does. For as Saint John Paul II liked to say: “If we have truly started out anew from the contemplation of Christ, we must learn to see him especially in the faces of those with whom he wished to be identified” (Novo Millennio Ineunte, 49). To see things as the Lord does, to be where the Lord wants us to be, to experience a conversion of heart in his presence. To do so, prayer and penance will help. I invite the entire holy faithful People of God to a penitential exercise of prayer and fasting, following the Lord’s command. This can awaken our conscience and arouse our solidarity and commitment to a culture of care that says “never again” to every form of abuse.
You couldn’t make this up.
And so it happens that even the Washington Post has decided to publish an article stating that it would actually be wise if the man were to step aside; and no, such articles are never published by mistake, and they never are the opinion of one man. This is a clear editorial policy and signals that Francis has just flown out of the window at WaPo.
How the dumb have fallen. But also: how dumb did they have to be, in order to be ditched by people who would want nothing more than the continuation of Francis’ policy of destruction of everything Catholic around him.
The Dictator of the Free State of Bananas has become Pope, and it appears the homo mafia who put him there aren’t much smarter than he is, either.
Matt Walsh: “Homosexuals must be banned from the priesthood — no exception. They must be banned. I said this has to be ruthless, brutal, uncompromising and so that’s one of those steps. Every homosexual priest — banned.”
Good statement. However, homo clergy are – officially – banned from the Church already, as homosexuality is – and has always been – not compatible with the priesthood.
Only an age as stupid as the Age of Insanity can come to the point of even beginning to believe that a person afflicted by this horrible perversion may have his hands consecrated, and everything should be fine provided he is celibate. Such a thinking shows a desensitisation for perversion that is, in itself, a sign of the vast perversion of sane thinking now reigning among the mainstream.
There is no place for priests in the Church. A priest is supposed to be – as much as possible – a holy man, and a pervert can never be a holy man, as Satan is ravaging him from the inside. Would anyone think that a person with an incestuous tendency can be a priest, provided he does not sleep with his mother? Seriously, what do these people have in their supposedly Catholic heads instead of a brain?
We need priest who know to speak out, as it is very reasonable to assume a lot of priests know a lot more than the average pewsitter about the Seminary time of their now-colleagues. We need journalists to publish credible and substantiated allegations. We need to force our clergy to purge as many homo priests and bishops as possible; not out of their own courage (which they don’t have) but because of the immense pressure coming from a laity now booing them at every step, not giving them every money, insulting them with everyone they know, denouncing them as the unworthy, miserable pariah and rejects they are; we need to create a climate in which it is too risky for a homosexual to think of the Ecclesiastical career, because if the events of 2018 start even a half serious purge and cause a number of prominent heads to fall there will be no saying when the next purge comes, and what its severity will be.
Every homosexual priest, banned.
Start getting used to the idea, and promote sanity within the Church again.
This here is Politico, therefore the entire article is disgustingly biased. However, even Libtards do not manage to escape the contact with facts, at least every now and then.
In this case, the facts are impossible to ignore: Italians simply do not care a straw of what Francis says and thinks, and prefer to follow a man that is, by all his flaws, infinitely more Catholic than him: Matteo Salvini, the Italian Trump, currently Making Italy Great Again.
Francis, being a damn Argentinian Commie, does not get the nature of the Italians, one of whose more evident traits is a robust pragmatism and avoidance of bigotry. The shockingly anti-Catholic message of the Evil Clown has been ignored even before his descent to Pope Francis the Heretic. Now, that there is an extremely stark contrast between political and papal approach, they are clearly choosing sanity and common sense.
The article recognises another important fact: the opposition to Francis and the support for the Lega comes, exactly, from the strata of the population which more closely identify (at least culturally) with Catholicism. This again gives the full measure of Francis’ failure. It is not that he carries the shrinking Catholic part of the Country, but fails to make inroads among the indifferent, the tepid and the Atheists. Quite the contrary is the case!
What a sad destiny for man too stupid to understand that he has broken the toy that the Papacy has put in his hands. Had he been more nuanced, moderate, or “between the lines”, he could have JP IIed through his Pontificate, playing the conservative guy as he sabotaged the Church one little step at a time. But this is not Francis. Francis is too arrogant, too boorish, and too damn stupid to understand simple things. In the meantime, Salvini has announced the end of the madness of “Parent 1” and “Parent 2”, and is (together with his excellent Family Minister, Fontana) moving against homo adoption. Can’t remember the Pope expressing himself with the same energy and asking the same decisive action. And he is, well, the Pope.
We are now to the point that it is reasonable to state that Francis’ rants actually help Salvini get the Catholic vote.
Yes, this is the Papacy of Francis.
Just as incompetent as a South American military dictatorship. With the addition of sodomy.
The astonishing (if we did not know the man) episode of formal heresy concerning the Capital Punishment teaches us some lessons that may not be pleasant but are, in my eyes, very salutary.
Pope Francis the Heretic, aka The Evil Clown, has not emerged from the earth like some satanical mushroom. He is the product of a mentality that has belittled and undermined Catholic teaching for decades.
Pope John Paul II the Not-So-Great has given us a horrible Catechism. This Catechism already had in itself the cancer cells that have now metastatised in Pope Francis The Heretic.
JP II’s Catechism does what the Church of Vatican II has done for decades: it tries to accommodate the world and to hush inconvenient truths about the Faith. The paragraphs about the Capital Punishment are an egregious example of this mentality pandering to the world instead of teaching it.
One Pope comes and says that yeah, the teaching of the Church cannot be changed; but hey, our sociology and psychology is now so much more advanced than Christ’s that we can now put this teaching in the darkest corner of the Barque of Peter; in theory, still available for use; but in practice, never to be used. Is it so surprising that, a quarter of a century later, another Pope comes and says that this unused instrument can now be thrown overboard?
Whilst there is still a huge difference between JP II’s and the Evil Clown’s approach – a difference in nature, not only in degree – no one can deny that the first paved the way for the second. JP II’s Catechism is the gateway drug to the Evil Clown’s Satanical Crack Cocaine.
Again, and as stated in the linked blog post, there is a silver lining in all this: the possibility for very many to react to this obvious heresy by embracing truth in toto rather than in the adulterated V II fashion.
Throw away your JP II Catechism, NOW! Decide that you will, from now on, have nothing to do with any watered down Catholic teaching. Plenty of traditional resources online (example here: you only need a short research) and in brick and mortar or online bookstores.
One thing will Pope Francis the Heretic teach to countless Catholics: that it is time to throw away the entire V II balderdash with it.
The Evil Clown has given us in recent days further proof that he is, at this point, completely in the hands of Satan.
Firstly, a basic concept: no Pope can change Church doctrine.
Whilst doctrine can evolve in the sense that it gets more complex as real life causes (or forces, as in the case of heresies) a refinement and deepening of the concepts already therein contained, this can never mean that something becomes something else. Obviously, it can also even less mean that something becomes the contrary of what it was before.
This is clearly obvious to every Catholic. The Problem is that this Pope is pretty much as Catholic as Satan is. Therefore, you wake up one morning and discover that Francis thinks (the operative word here is… thinks) that the constant teaching of the Church on Capital punishment can be changed.
If anyone is so dumb, or evil, to believe this, may the Lord have mercy on him.
What Francis is saying is that… Catholicism is a lie.
If the Church can “evolve” and discover that She was wrong all these 2000 years in something so important as (verbatim) life and death, this means that Christ has allowed His Church to spread evil as unchangeable Catholic teaching for 2000 years. This, in turn, means that the Church is a fraud, and everything She has ever taught is as disposable as a paper napkin (or, in case, Francis’ incontinence pads). Everyone who is evil enough to believe that Francis can change doctrine on Capital Punishment must, logically, think the same on abortion, divorce, communion, the whole lot of the Catholic Faith.
This is also, just so there is no doubt, formal (not material anymore) heresy. Francis is not giving an interpretation of existing teaching which is (though he does not understand it) objectively heretical. He is, very officially, saying that what was right is now wrong. You can’t find a better example of formal heresy than a Pope saying that the Capital Punishment is “inadmissible”, and neither you nor I nor any other Catholic with a shred of common sense and intellectual honesty is authorised to care a straw that the Pope says “inadmissible” instead of “wrong”, as the meaning and the effect are exactly the same.
At this point, this satanical individual has stopped shocking me. There is, as I have already written in the past, nothing that would let me say of him “I would have never thought that he could do this”. If it were to turn out that he celebrates black masses, or has screwed children, or his mother, I would not be surprised, either.
We have now to wait and see whether among that bunch of Reprobates calling themselves Bishops and Cardinals someone (hopefully, someone without a collection of bras) is man enough to denounce the heresy and the Pope who spreads it. I will not be holding my breath.
The silver lining in all this is this: a good Lord allowed this satanical individual to abandon himself to his folly to this point, so that even the most tepid Catholic may be given the opportunity to choose Him instead of that clown. In the darkest hour, Providence is working for us.
Pope Francis the Heretic, go to hell without me.
Let those who want to be blinded pay the price of their rebellion.
We stay on the side of two thousand years of Catholics before us.
It is absurd to let a huge number of young people congregate when it is clear many of the priests who will come in contact with them are homosexual.
This is not the time for another expensive exercise in public relations. This is time for serious self reflection followed by brutal excision of the cancer in the Church.
We have enough of public initiatives intended to very publicly undermine the Catholic message on family and chastity.
With the storm currently going on, this will only attract more criticism of the Church from the wrong people (whom Francis like) and for the wrong motives (which Francis like, too).
A Pope suspected of covering up for his own Cardinals has no place opening his mouth about the Family.
All these gatherings are, in fact, near occasions of sin and an invitation to fornication for the many young people attending.
There were no such exercises in the Time of Sanity.
Cardinal Farrell has produced himself in a piece of involuntary comedy denying that he had any inkling of the perverted inclinations of Cardinal McCarrick.
“I worked in the chancery in Washington and never, no indication, none whatsoever,” Farrell said. “Nobody ever talked to me about this and I was involved, heavily involved,”
This is just as credible as Martin Bormann saying he did not know anything about the Final Solution.
It is amusing, and a little sad, to see these people so desperately trying to deny the obvious; hiding behind a finger and hoping that, if they are very, very lucky, no one will come with substantiated accusations about them knowing. Hey, Hitler did not leave any written order about the Final Solution, either…
One can hope (and it is a very founded hope) that now that the… fag is out of the sack many more people will come out and talk not only about those who did, but also about those who knew and did nothing. As to this man, the probability that he is not part and parcel of the homo mafia or, at the very least, beholden to them is almost hilariously – if tragic in its own way – low.
Prepare yourself for more ” I knew nothing” interviews, and pray that – beside the work of the police, which for some reason linked to the american “Deep State” I happen to not trust – some serious investigative journalism is carried out on this and more and more filth comes to the light.
I assure you: what emerges might well be shocking, but it will not be unexpected at all.
Seriously, if we accept for a moment what Francis has said to the press in a little pause between two attacks on Trump, what kind of nonsense will we end up believing?
The man states he did not receive the dubia privately, and only knew about them from the newspapers. How can anyone be so arrogant and dumb at the same time? The mind boggles.
Firstly, this assertion is so stupid that not even an old nincompoop like him can really believe it will wash. Cardinals like Burke and Caffarra – no lions, certainly; but correct, decent people – would, then, have schemed against him? Really? How are we expected to believe that the Cardinals would not try to solve such an important issue in camera caritatis before going public? How dirty must Francis mind be, to even start to think it?
Secondly, Francis’ pants are clearly on fire. If this had been the case, why not say so immediately? It would have least have lent some little credibility to the assertion, and if anyone has blocked the communication it would have been easy to discover who; besides, this should have been followed by an offer of immediate meeting to discuss the matter. Communication, you know? Talking. Discussing differences. Discovering common ground. Helping each other.
Third: what kind of senile, petty idiot does not answer important questions concerning the faith in order to “show it” to Cardinals he thinks have slighted him?
Fourthly: what kind of unspeakably evil ass has the temerity and shamelessness of even going around and imply that he was right in not answering the Dubia because they were not presented to him in the proper way, as if this was a legitimate reaction?
Lastly: what other public person or politician – nay: what what kind of adult – would spit such nonsense to the press without being inundated with harsh criticism and utter insult? How old is this guy, three? Sheesh.
The next Pope might be even more satanical than this one.
But it is impossible that the Cardinals find another one who is just as stupid.
Wim Wenders’ sugary brown-nosing of the Evil Clown ended up a bomb of dramatic proportions. The details of the drama are here.
You could probably screen a documentary on the history of the semicolon and get more people willing to pay to see that than torturing themselves with 96 minutes of Francis. I do not doubt it would be more interesting and formative, too. Actually, one has the impression the only viewers were those being punished by their parents and forced to choose between the documentary and two months of being “grounded”.
This is enough to make you cringe. This is so embarrassing I am embarrassed for them, as the likes of Francis and Wenders are obviously incapable of embarrassment themselves. This one is the Pope, for crying out loud! He goes out in 350 cinemas and he gets, on the opening weekend, an average of $1,500 per cinema screen, per weekend?
Mind, this is the gross intake. The theatre gets around half, the other half goes to… reduce the losses. $750 for the weekend. Will this suffice to even pay for electricity, cleaning and personnel?
Embarrassing. Utterly and completely embarrassing. From the man who has dedicated his own papacy to being “accepted” and considered “cool” by those people who constitute the majority of cinema goers in the United States. With a director whose name still has some form of, if not esteem, at least recognition. It goes to show how radioactive Francis is.
Despised by Catholics. Ignored by everyone else. Desperately trying to be popular with the world. Failing miserably.
There you have it: this papacy in four short sentences.
A bizarre news hit the internet yesterday. The Dutch Bishops have not celebrated, as is their custom, the anniversary of the election of a Pope. The explanation given for this is even more bizarre: no time.
The Dutch Bishops taken together are, as we all know, a bunch of heretics. They should have all the interest in the world to support Francis. They should be cheerleading for him day and night.
Instead they have, literally, “no time for Francis”.
Whilst it is difficult to know what is going on here, one can make a reasonable hypothesis: that Francis has made such an ass of himself that even those who are, like him, on the side of the demons prefer to keep their distance.
It’s like being a South-American Dictator that is such an embarrassment to his own generals, that they try to distance themselves from him even as they enrich themselves under his rule.
Admittedly, there might be other explanations (from sheer laziness, to virtue-signalling because they are so busy “helping the poor” to, methinks, unwillingness to cancel the meeting at the Gay Sauna). But realistically, the one I have mentioned above seems the most realistic.
A heretical Pope despised by his fellow heretics gives the measure of this man’s epic failure.
We are truly living in the age of the delicate violet.
It is as if any notion of manliness had gone away together with the last vestiges of Christianity.
Truth is now taboo. Being sensitive violets is all that counts, and this obligation to poisonous sensitivity at the expense of Faith encompasses everyone and everything. Even children, who are in the age when truths is most easily absorbed and imprints itself most clearly in our consciousness, must not be spared. No, their faith must be perverted at a very young age, courtesy of the Evil Clown.
It is not difficult to say to a young orphan that if his atheist father died in his atheism he is most certainly in hell. It is an “if”, not a “when”. It preserves the faith – for the good of the child second, and of the Faith first – and encourages him to pray, as every Christian should, for the soul of his father; in the hope that one day he might discover that his father did not, in fact, die in his atheism.
What was done to this child is cruel. He was inoculated with the germ of atheism, and the Pope himself was the one with the syringe. What unbelievable rubbish, what atheist nonsense, what negation of Christ for the sake of… what? Of not making a child cry? Poppycock. For the sake of spreading atheism among all Catholics. Then if Francis is right, Jesus is a liar, Christianity does not make any sense, and Christ died on the Cross for those who deny and insult Him to the last, like the evil robber on the Cross.
What a nasty piece of work this man is. His hatred for everything Christian has now become totally unhinged. It is as if he wanted to show us that the more we criticise him, the more heresy he will spread, just because he can.
Besides, this comes from a man who has just released an Apostolic Excrementation going on and on about the evil of Pelagianism, but is obviously too thick to understand that to maintain that a man goes to heaven without faith, simply because he is “a good man”, is as Pelagian as a heretic can be.
Every hen loves her little ones. Stalin loved his daughter. Goebbels loved his family. But human love without faith does not merit heaven, then he who rejects Him Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life cannot claim acceptance by Him because of lesser, and utterly natural, and by the way God-given, good traits in his character. Works without faith do not save.
This unhinged, evil man must be exposed for what he is: an atheist subversive only interested in showing to the liberal and atheist crowds, whose approval he craves, that he is one of them.
Die soon, Francis, and may the Lord have mercy on you. Though for some reason I have the impression that your pit will be the deepest in hell.
Cowardinal Burke strikes again.
With absolutely no sense of shame after he has refused to follow through with the Dubia, an initiative of which he was the undoubted front man, Burke has the insolence to complain again about Pope Francis as if he were a quisque de populo rather than a Prince of the Church, and actually evading the obvious elephant in the room, the question about his sustained inability to whistle after wetting his lips, in a very public way and amid worldwide cheers.
Every interview with this individual should have no other question than this one: when is the man going to proceed to the solemn and public correction of the Pope, now made clearly unavoidable by his absence of any answer to the Dubia?
Cowardinal Burke is a fair weather “conservative” always ready to make himself beautiful in interviews, and unable to fight the good fight whenever it may cost him something more than the mild inconvenience of having to move his office from this or that utterly splendid palace. And what grates me most is that is does not even have the dignity and decency of, at least, being a Cowardinal in silence, like many of his colleagues. No, this one wants your applause whilst he avoids doing his job.
The Dubia were posed in September 2016. Heavens, that’s more than one and a half year ago! Two of the Cardinals have managed to die of old age (and may the Lord have mercy on them!) before finding the guts to act. This one here keeps meowing, but it’s clear that he has no intention of acting whatsoever, either.
Most infuriatingly of all, Cowardinal Burke keeps repeating that it is right to criticise the Pope, even publicly, for the good of the Church and to avoid confusing the faithful. And what he keeps saying that it is right and the thing to do he keeps not doing!! It’s unreal!
Cowardinal Burke is trying to be a hero on the cheap.
He blabbers, you applaud, everything is fine.It’s not going to change.
God forbid, he were to lose another splendid office.
This priest died suddenly in the Vatican. 29 years old.
Eternal rest, and all that.
But this is not the reason for this blog post.
Good Lord, what a fairy!
Are these the priests of today?
I’d say not. These are probably the priests of today who ends up in the Vatican.
Yes, I am being judgmental.
Yes, I don’t care that he has just died.
As long as we have priests like this guy, we will continue to tank.
There is an article on Antonio Socci’s blog that got me thinking. The article was published yesterday, April Fools’ Day, and when I read it I thought of an April’s fish; particularly for the use of the Italian adjective, “farlocco”, normally a jocose way of saying “fake”, or “pretty dumb”, and would have caused a smile after the announcement of the “fish”.
However, I write this on the afternoon of the 2nd, and the post is still up there with no “Fish” whatsoever.
The article is long and smart, but the part that interests me is Socci’s assertion that a non-Italian Cardinal got very angry, contacted other Cardinals, then contacted the Pope and, also on behalf of those other Cardinals, let him know that his statements exposed him to the danger of being deposed.
This would be, if confirmed, quite the bomb. However, yours truly observes the following:
- What kind of Cardinals are those who ran to the phones for a quotation in an atheist newspaper, but do nothing for an entire encyclical signed by the Pope? It seems unlikely that the Cowardinals would shut up (even the four, after some meowing) following the official proclamation of an alternative morality, but would be suddenly up in arms for the quotation of a 94 years old in an atheist newspaper. Unless…
- Unless even Cowardinals are humans, and some of them might even believe in God, and be afraid for their eternal destiny; hence this short outburst of reason; which, by the way, was put to rest when the Vatican denied not even that Francis might believe in heresies, but merely that he would say so openly to a journalist. Still…
- … the perhaps most interesting fact is in the rumor itself: this is a Pope who might have been called by a Cardinal more or less kindly threatening him with deposition, and the facts makes headlines, and no one finds it absurd or the fruit of fantasies. This Pontificate is so discredited that rumors of threats of deposition are seen, whether true or not, as perfectly realistic.
How the humble have fallen!
