Thankfully, the announced document from the Vatican is not an encyclical letter but “merely” a CDF one. Make no mistake, it is rubbish all the same.
The document has a fake aim, which is the correction of misconceptions about Salvation; and a real one, which is to insult faithful Catholics the world over whilst spreading more heresy.
Ironically, the most heretical Pope in History accuses us of being heretic, because we refuse to accept ( and I quote) ” the newness of the Spirit of God”. What a blasphemy to think that the Holy Ghost may become “new” and thus different from the Old One! Still, if you refuse to accept this in-built, permanent and ever-changing heresy it is you, my dear reader, who are the heretic!
Only an idiot can think that a Catholic in good faith can accept such rubbish. Francis has not missed this occasion to let us know what an idiot it is.
There is more rubbish still: apparently, “desire for physical health” and such like pretty automatic, everyday desires even Stalin had are now a form of desire for salvation.
Really, this is dumb beyond belief. It is not only the attempt to create a new religion. It is the attempt to create a religion of immense stupidity, a system of non-belief a third grader would easily unmask as extremely superficial, stupid to the level of grave retardation, and deprived of every permanence and logic.
The fact that, apparently, some fake conservative outlets have tried to smuggle this rubbish as sound Catholic fare is a very depressing indication of the horrible quality of today’s Catholic discourse.
Francis hates you, and he wanted to react to the continuous accusations of heresy against him by calling you a heretic. In doing so, he has once again revealed his dumbness, utter ignorance and unspeakable arrogance.
Poor deluded ass, who keeps shooting himself in the foot every time he thinks he has done something smart.
Let us try to find something, in a way, positive in what is happening in the Church.
Francis has brought things to a level where it is not possible anymore to deny the direct, unequivocal causal link between V II and the current madness. At this point, the game of deception played for several decades since the early Sixties is up.
Francis and his successors will try to let this deception go on for as long as they can; but year after year the link between FrancisChurch and V II will become more obvious. At that point, V II will be mortally wounded already.
When the Great Crisis ends, it will not end with a compromise. It will, more likely, end with the complete eradication of V II; a sort of giant purgation that will spare nothing of all the toxins of V II, leaving a purified Church body in its wake.
It must be this way. When a tooth starts to ache horribly you do not think about salvaging it in any way possible. You want it gone, you want it completely eradicated, and nothing else will suffice.
Before Francis, one might have thought that the Disease Of John XXIII would have continued in a subtle way for many decades, perhaps centuries; threatened by faithful extinction, but not by a revolt from within. The train wreck of this Pontificate makes another scenario more likely: death of FrancisChurch together with the Evil Clown (less likely with every new Consistory but, with God’s grace, always possible) or continuation of FrancisChurch amidst more and more opposition until the toxic V II is literally vomited out of the body of the Church.
You could say that I am being very long-term optimist here. You would be right.
Still, it will be a consolation, as I cook my dinner tonight, to think that one day this cancer will be extirpated whole, and its monstrous shape thrown away in a disgusting bin together with other heresies of the past, to be despised and ridiculed by countless generations of orthodox Catholics; many of them, very likely, almost unable to understand how the Church could reduce herself to such a state, as countless Tridentine Masses are again celebrated every day in beautiful, richly ornate, unapologetically Catholic churches, whilst the faithful attend reverently and receive in awe, on their knees, on the tongue.
May we all, dear readers, see them from above as they are kneeling, and may we thank the Lord for having given us the possibility of defending Catholicism, without wavering, in the darkest hour.
The news is now everywhere. In what clearly amounts to a “German Schism” (very much redolent of the “Dutch Schism” of the Sixties) the German bishops have overwhelmingly voted for the desecration of the Holy Host and the rape of the Sacrament of Communion by allowing Protestants to (try to) receive communion.
Make no mistake: Paul VI had nothing more to oppose to the Dutch schismatics bishops than some faint meowing, but in the case of Francis not even that is to be expected.
This Schism follows the Amoris Laetitia pattern, according to which “in certain cases” sacrilege and scandal can be allowed. Discernment, concrete situations, all that satanic dog shit is present here, too. The fig leaves do not change the reality: this is a very official, if undeclared, schism, and if we had males as Cardinals and Bishops it should be treated as such. We have kitten, females and homos. Therefore, don't hold your breath.
In the Schismatic church of Germany, it is too much to ask that the Protestant spouse shuts the Francis up and either dies without pretending he/she can receive communion or converts to the Catholic Church. This is too difficult, see. It could cause cataclysms, global warming, a resurgence of the Nazi Party and, worst of all, a problem with the Kirchensteuer. Therefore, it is better to invent a new religion applicable to all the “special cases” we want (make no mistake: they will become the norm very soon; not that it matters anyway) in order to keep the paying customer satisfied.
Truly, Germany has become (again) the main source of all the shit now threatening to submerge Europe, both on the political and on the Catholic sphere.
By God's grace, my faith is strong. Therefore I know, I know for certain, that all the Saints and the Angels are looking at this disgrace, and that nothing of this will remain unpunished.
Nil inultum remanebit.
Think of this, you damn satanical Bishops, and shiver.
Or not, and then may God's just punishment incinerate you and make you suffer forever.
The Papal Foundation, a US charity helping the poor worldwide, has been the latest victim of Mao-Tse-Francis, who was found with his hands on its funds like the proverbial child with the proverbial cookie jar.
The details were – if we did not know what first-class scoundrel the man is – astonishing in their brazen arrogance. The Papal Foundation gives grants normally between $100k and $200k for worthy projects worldwide. Francis asked them for $25m (more than one tenth of their piggy bank) to give them to… an Italian hospital with a sordid recent past of corruption and assorted other criminal offence.
Again, it would be beyond belief if it would not involve Francis, a man who at this point could be suspected of pretty much everything under the sun without anyone saying “I'd never have thought it…”.
Francis robbed the poor to give to the thieves. He did it in pure South American dictator fashion: “give me the money and shut up, because I am the humble defender of the poor”. A common hoodie in a horrible London neighbourhood would behave with more class.
His wish was, initially, only mildly opposed and, predictably, the US Cardinals involved in the decision did not think it fitting to displease the Evil Clown. They aren't smart, because they must have known that this would, at some point, be leaked and cause a huge scandal. Which promptly happened.
This disgusting episode shows not only Francis' robber instincts, but also the cowardice of those – particularly the US Cardinals, starting from Wuehrl – who have been his willing, if allegedly grudging, accomplices in this. Shame on all of them, but particularly on Francis, daring to put his dirty old hands on money meant for the poor and giving them to a thieving, totally discredited organisation.
Once again, this goes to show that Francis has no moral dimension whatsoever. You are either in his team or you aren't. If you are, he will allow you to get away with financial malfeasance, homosexuality and paedophilia. If you aren't, he will crush you if he can and insult you if he can't.
This is another nail in the coffin of this pontificate, that will be remembered as a nightmare for centuries to come.
Please, Lord, let this scourge end soon.
Not many seem to have noticed it in the midst of the rampant paedo scandal, but Mao-Tse-Francis has, last week, done something extraordinary.
In an interview to in Italian newspaper, he has openly admitted that a number of Catholic blogs call him a heretic. The statement was followed by the usual insults, but what interests us here is the message sent by this extraordinary admission.
Mao-Tse-Francis is admitting, as a fact of life, that many orthodox Catholic bloggers consider him a heretic. This is such an admission of total failure as a bigger one can not easily be given, short of open confession. It should have crossed the mind of this nincompoop that, by the very admission of the phenomenon, he is admitting its sheer scale. No Pope would be concerned with isolated nutcases. But in this case the phenomenon – nay: the movement ) is so strong that even he finds it impossible to ignore.
It is such a complete loss of face for a Pope to have to admit that he is widely – and in particular among the right kind of Catholics – considered a heretic that every other heretical Pope, if endowed with a properly functioning brain, would accurately avoid the subject. Not so Francis: firstly because he is stupid, and secondly because he is such a little bitch that he could not resist insulting us. Which is the other message sent out with his admission.
Too much of a heretic to avoid a mass insurgency, too stupid to shut up about it, and too petty to resist the temptation to insult us.
This last interview is an accurate picture of this Pontificate.
And it came to pass another fairly high prelate in Faggot City (this is the new unofficial name of Vatican City) was unmasked as both homo and paedo. Monsignor Amenta, apparently a Bishop and a Sacra Rota judge (no less!), was found in possession of child pornography on his computer. Read on the link the pathetic details about this old pig, unable to stay away from the genitals of men in public.
Quis judicet judices?
Whilst this guy was apparently promoted to his position by Pope Benedict whilst already known to the Italian Carabinieri, I would not put Francis and Benedict in the same frying pan on this. There can't be any doubt that Benedict was sincerely interested, and generally successful, in combating paedophilia among the clergy; nor can the man be accused of not being a private investigator if – as it seems very likely, knowing the man – he was not informed of Monsignor Amenta's stomach-churning inclinations. The difference is this: that in the case of Benedict it is a fact that he acted to fight against paedophile clergy, and in the case of Francis it is a fact that he either aided and abetted the homo Mafia, or he is their hostage, or he is one of them. As to child abuse, Francis basically dismantled the apparatus set up by Benedict.
Now: as this little blog has noticed many times, whilst not all homos are paedos, almost all paedos are homos. It follows that Francis' relentless cover-up of the homo Mafia is bound to give him cases of paedophilia inside the Vatican, whether he knows it or not, whether he wants it or not.
I have written only very recently about Francis nuking his own Pontificate, and only hours later the next scandal erupts.
Truly, Francis is one of a kind.
I saw just another documentary about a man I deeply admire.
A strong character, not given to sophisms and shades of gray. Extremely determined and with a very strong sense of duty. A military genius. A devout and loving husband. A man able to command extremedevotion and unquestioning obedience from his men. Most of all, a man of very strong faith, a faith he carried with himself not only in battle, but in every little aspect of his life.
His name was Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson.
“Stonewall” Jackson was a Protestant.
I do not ask, today, for people among our Catholic leaders with one tenth of his discipline, courage, determination and sense of duty.
But I wonder how many of our bishops have one tenth of his faith.
'Unble Paedoabetter Francis pretends the world has not noticed what a piece of Obama he is and keeps lecturing us about opening our hearts and such like saccharine nonsense.
I am not buying it.
This guy has now irretrievably compromised himself and the only think he deserves is to be covered in righteous mud until he either resigns and hillaries off to Argentina – provided they want him; there might be some hut free in the midst of his curas villeros – or else kicks the bucket and goes wherever the Lord's Justice has decreed fitting for him.
It is bad enough to have a man engaging in a shameless cover-up of child abuse to protect his friends.
It is even worse to see the same man lecturing us about how we should become more like him.
May your days be short, Mao-Tse-Francis. And whilst I really wish you salvation with all my heart, I can't avoid thinking that there is a very deep, extremely stinky, excruciatingly hot hole being dug in hell as I write this, just for you.
As the world looks in astonishment at a Communist Pope (and this is not a joke or hyperbole: Francis truly is one who sides with Communists against the Church) I can, today, reveal the results of my several years long investigation into the root causes of, well, a Communist Pope. The culprits will be exposed, and humanity will not have to wonder anymore how this could happen.
The results are as follows:
1. Pope John XXIII.
Opened the Pandora's Box of “change”. Deluded in his senile confidence that the Chuch's dominance was so strong that nothing could touch it. Far too desirous to be liked. Too weak to make himself heard. Took out of the exile heretical theologians. The useful idiot of the subversives.
2. Pope Paul VI
Astonishing, almost schizophrenic mixture of moments of sanity and impotent watching as the Church demolition took a much faster pace. Whino extraordinaire with no balls worth the mention after Humanae Vitae. Countless atrocious episcopal appointments. Allowed the religious sisters to morph into aggressive lesbian communes. Thin-skinned (no encyclicals after HV). Allowed the Durch Schism, the Dutch Catechism and many atrocities more. Apart from HV, useless to pretty much everyone but Satan.
(2.5. Pope John I. Declared Innocent for lack of inculpatory evidence as Pope).
3. Pope John Paul II
PR-enamoured Pontiff very mindful of keeping an appearance of orthodoxy whilst allowing all sort of subversion to go on for more than a quarter of a century. Vaguely heathenish Earth-kisser for the joy of the cameras. Koran-kisser to boot. Had himself publicly criticised by Feminazi “sisters”, did nothing against them. Crushed South American heretics, allowed all the others to thrive. Countless atrocious episcopal a d cardinalatian appointments. Made of the Church a circus.
4. Pope Benedict XVI
Only German Pastor in history to ever flee before the wolves. Does one thing right (Summorum Pontificum), ruins all the rest: horrendous appointments, spied by his own butler, changes his mind on the SSPX at the last second. Resigns because… too weak to fly to “world youth something”. Insists in remaining Pope so no one calls him a Celestine, creates even more confusion. Praises Francis to the sky. Drinks beer at 90, wants world to know. Announces his impending salvation to the adoring crowd.
Honourable mention goes to the Kitten Cardinals: who, by refusing to whistle after very publicly wetting their lips, showed Francis that there was pretty nothing he could not dare. Mao-Tse-Francis is just another byproduct of their cowardly silence.
I have said it.
Now I can sleep in peace.
I would like to tell you that the way Francis is, with his own hands, destroying his pontificate fills me with sadness. Alas, I never was the one for the soppy phrases.
I have been saying for years now that, once clear that this Pontificate is of the devil, it is good for the papacy and for the Church that this pontificate implodes. What I was not expecting is that this Pope – whom I have never considered a genius anyway; rather the contrary – would be so unbelievably dumb to shoot himself in the gonads with the energy he is showing, for all the world to see.
Francis is, basically, attacking his own pontificate on several fronts. His Chinese wholesale of the entire Church in China to his favourite people – the Communists – comes at the exact same time that he is exposed as a gross liar – raise his hand who believes that Cardinal O'Malley, not Francis, is lying…. – and a shameless protector of his friends, just as the number of powerful homos within the hierarchy becomes larger and more embarrassing.
I dare here to formulate three hypotheses, and I would be very surprised if no one would apply:
1. The man is stupid, childish and arrogant; to the point that he does not even understand that his homo antics and his erotic attraction for socialism, environmentalism and income redistribution will end up destroying his papacy.
2. He is a homo, blackmailed by other homos into espousing the perverts' agenda, and possibly also encouraged – provided he needs any encouragement – to further an anti-Catholic agenda in other matters to make the homo plan more easily digestible.
3. He has other secrets, not of perverted nature, and he is blackmailed by the homo lobby into number 2 through them.
Be it as it may, this papacy is now rapidly becoming Francisgeddon, as I do not remember a single name of a world personality who, once targeted by the entire planet for being an a better of pedophilia, managed to get out of trouble by crying “Environment!” Or “Inequality!”
Paedophilia is the last taboo of the taboo less society.
Francis has doomed his Pontificate with his very own hands.
A strange phenomenon has been happening in the last days.
Francis' Papacy has been plunged in its most dramatic crisis since that disgraceful day in March 2013 not by his support for adultery, his attacks on the sacraments, his airing and abetting of homosexual priests, or his thousand blasphemies and heresies, but by one of the few issues by which the Catholic mind and the secular one both react in a strong way: the cover-up of child abuse.
It would be ironic indeed if a Pope so entirely married to the secular world were to be taken down by the same world he so eagerly tried to please, and for one of the few remaining behaviour which the secular world still manages to condemn.
I hope they cut him to pieces, pieces so little that you can make bolognese with him. And I think we all should help in making this happen.
In your blog, in your comments, in your tweets and Facebook entries, shoot on this man without mercy: he deserves none of it, and the sooner he is made mincemeat of by all kind of both Catholics and secular outlets, the better for the Church and all of us.
Put the guy through your very own keyboard meat grinder. This is what he has deserved.
Cardinal Marx is on record with one of the most satanical attacks to Holy Mother Church ever perpetrated by one of his members in 2000 years. Why the man is still allowed to exercise his priestly ministry is beyond me. This man should be defrocked yesterday.
Cardinal Marx proposes a do-it-yourself theology concerning the “blessing” of “homosexual couples”: the local priests looks at the two fags – or dykes – in question and decides whether the “circumstances” of their case (just thinking here: they help the Polar Bear Cub, and are oh so nice) justify their “union” receiving a “blessing”.
I so miss the Inquisition.
The do-it-yourself theology that the Cardinal is proposing is, very clearly, a proposal of complete and utter demolition of Catholic theology and, with it, of the Catholic Church, because even a retarded Aleteia reader understands that this equates to a free-for-all where every parish priest decides what goes and what not, and to what extent every kind of public scandal and obvious immorality can be “blessed”.
This is not even the proposal of the foundation of a new religion. This is the proposal of the foundation of as many new religions are there are parishes, with the advantage of continuing to collect the Kirchensteuer to the tune of billions of euro a year.
Cardinal Marx is every inch an enemy of Christ and His Church as the eponymous Karl. He is merely proposing to destroy the Church from the inside. As they say: Nomen Omen, “(in the) name (is the) destiny”.
Actually, if Karl Marx himself had become a Cardinal, it is difficult to think of a more efficient way of proposing the complete destruction of the Church.
But I am being silly here. In Karl Marx' time there was no Aggiornamento, no interreligious dialogue, no strange discernment and there were Catholic Cardinals.
Cardinal Marx must have lost the faith not years, but decades ago.
Every day this is allowed to continue as a priest is a shame for the Church.
The latest production of the Evil Clown's Catholicphobic mind is a new document giving instructions on how to better ruin Catholic faculties and other institutes of higher education, and make sure that Catholicism is substituted, for as far as practical, with the new mantras of the secular world: social justice, environmentalism, redistributionist rubbish.
The rhetoric is deafening, with a repeated call to baldness in… not being Catholic. It is, in fact, as if Francis were saying to his main audience (those who hate Catholicism) : “see? I am still your darling! I might protect a bishop enabler of child abuse whenever I like the man, or the man is loyal to me; but please look at the big picture: I am as environ-mentalist as Al Gore, as Socialist as Bernie Sanders, and every bit a bitch as Angela Merkel! You gotta love me!”
Thankfully for us, the propaganda is so open, so shameless that it does not need an intelligent reader to understand what is going on. Basically, Francis is doing the work for us and exposing himself as a faithless subversive without any need for long explanations.
This man cannot die one day too soon. Let us hope that the Lord, who is punishing us in the most fearful way for enabling 50+ years of V II-ism, will soon put an end to this utterly obscene Papacy and give us a successor that is, at least, recognisably Catholic.
It seems to me that a new breed of cardinal is being bred.
The new type of cardinal is blind, deaf and, alas, not really perceptive.
Cardinal Eijk (this is one of the thirteen and of the eleven; those Cardinals who sign letters and write books, but are nowhere to be found when real action is needed) evidently lives on Planet Three Monkeys, as he asked Francis – without, apparently, any intention to be funny – to clarify ambiguous statements in Amoris Laetitia.
The mind boggles: it is as if anyone asked Henry VIII how his beheading of Fischer and Moore has to be interpreted, because it send ambiguous signals, you know.
The strategy seems to be to pretend that one does not see reality, and hope that the faithful buy it.
Well, I don't buy it. Cowardinal Eijk is another one who is trying not to do his job.
His job is to wake up already, denounce Amoris Laetitua as heretical, and demand that Pope Francis recants or is faced with the call for an extraordinary council to put him under trial.
Everything else is of the devil.
Including this utterly ridiculous pretending that one does not understand what Pope Francis means, after an apostolic exhortation, countless public utterances, a letter to bishops and a publication of the same letter in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis so that the dumbest Cowardinal gets what is expected of him.
Enough with these pathetic hypocrites. Be a Cardinal already or resign and go back to be a priest in your parish.
And it came to pass the Unholy Father had to spout his own dumb, banal lies about “fake news”, as it seems there is no political issue about which this cretin thinks that the world does not have to listen to him. As expected, the stupidity of the man is mind boggling.
Fake news need discernment to be uncovered, he says. How do you discover fake news? Simple, says Sherlock: they are those news who are divisive and sow discord.
This is dumb – and.. fake news! – even for Francis' standard! Being controversial or difficult to cope with for some says nothing about it being truthful or fake. If I say that Pope Francis spreads and promotes sacrilege and heretical thinking, this may be controversial, but it is certainly not fake!
And we see here where Francis wants to have you: his criticism of “fake news” is nothing but an invitation to ignore the truest news of the last years: that we are plagued with a vulgar, short-tempered, impious, sacrilegious, Church-hating Pope doing all he can to damage Christ and His Church.
Is this controversial? You bet. But if you think that this is “fake news” you may be even dumber than Francis.
Nor does this astonishing dumb propaganda end here. The man also thinks that the role of the journalist is not merely to “break news”, but to spread news that further understanding and harmony among the people. Apart from the fact that not even a child of six is impressed by this bout of effeminate emotionalism, the consequence of the thinking is that a falsehood that encourages “harmony” (say: “Pope Francis is a wonderfully Catholic Pope and everyone loves him”) would be “good news” even if patently false. But once again, this is what the man wants: that journalists shut up about his endless gaffes and scandals because it promotes harmony.
I don't know if this man has become entirely senile because he has always been stupid and it is difficult to tell. But one must say that this level of stupidity does justify the question whether an already stupid man is being left by even that little quantity of grey matter he had.
Pope Entirely Demented would be, no doubt, a huge improvement on Pope Francis.
Cowardinal Burke has given another yadda yadda interview – he does this once every couple of weeks now – and has, very pointedly, shut up about what he intends to do considering that Francis has not answered the Dubia.
It appears to me that the answer to this is “nothing”, and that the Cowardinal will only give interviews to people who agree to not ask him when the heck he is going to whistle after wetting his lips for many months. The latest interview – no link, because a waste of time, and the Cowardinal does not deserve the time of day – is notable mostly for this: that the interviewer does not even pose the question.
This goes to show on the one side how toothless certain “Catholic” journalism is, and on the other side how dumb, or confused, or outright clericalist the mainstream Catholics are: people who, after such an astonishing refusal to stand for Christ, made much worse by the grandstanding that preceded it, are happy with the usual hot air the Cowardinal keeps dishing them instead of asking of him that he do his darn job day in and day out.
Seriously, I am done with this guy. I despise him by now almost as much as I despise Francis, and more than I do the other Cardinals who are just as cowardly as he is, but do not try to let you believe anything else.
It is bad enough when a Cardinal shuts up in the face of papal attacks to Sacraments. But when a Cardinal has made himself beautiful with the faithful posing as the guardian of orthodoxy and then blatantly refuse to do what he has announced many times he would do, this is much worse still.
Meet Cowardinal Burke. The man who announced he was ready to be a hero, turned out to be a coward, and still wants to give interviews and get a place in the sun because he once was a paper tiger.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive…
The PR stunt of the “Francismarriage” on the aeroplane in Chile is revealing more and more elements which, alone, say a lot about this pontificate. What I remember on the spot is:
1. The two were concubines. No trace of repentance, living separated in preparation of the marriage, etc. Mortal sin as it lives and breathes. Isn't it fun?
2. The two had actually planned to marry, but an earthquake which took place in… 2010 prevented them for doing so. For more than seven years, you understand. Boy, these South American Earthquakes have quite the after effects. Cela va sans dire, the two did find the time – earthquake or no earthquake – to go live in sin and give public scandal. Cue a non-judgmental Francis not caring a straw for the Sacraments and for basic decency, as always.
3. The stunt was presented as a “spontaneous” act, but was in fact carefully planned. What a fake, hypocrite, dumb, reckless liar of a Pope we have! So fake that he lies to you in order to promote his image, so stupid that he doesn't realise his lies will be unmasked in a matter of days.
Really, how wrong can a person get something in one go? This is Guinness-worthy. The man has actually exposed himself as a cheap, stupid liar for the sake of two days' headlines! A seven – year – old with some smarts would be a better liar and, very possibly, a better Pope.
This Papacy has become like those cringeworthy spectacles in the circus of the last ocentury, those meant to make people be horrified and fascinated by the same horror they felt: the Cannon Woman, the Bearded Woman, the… Clown Pope!
I don't know for how long Francis' Horror Show will go on. But I tremble at the thought of the pit very probably prepared for this man in hell.
And it came to pass the Evil Clown shot himself in the (black) boot for the,mlikely, 1547th time. When in Chile, the man defended his pal, Bishop Barros, in the usual intemperate, boorish words of his, openly accusing of slander any and all of his accusers. His words were so harsh his own chief abuse guy, Cardinal O'Malley, called them “inexplicable”. I think “sadly very explicable” is more like it.
Now, a Pope does not have to believe every accusation against every bishop. However, the kind of angry answer given by the Unholy Father (with the “is that clear?” conclusion that really says it all) is indicative of the scale of the problem we are facing here, and it is something you would never hear from Benedict.
It is, by the way, perfectly legitimate to suspect Francis of cover-up in clerical scandals whenever the culprit is a pal of his. This is a man who allows a notorious sodomite priest to run the very hotel where he lives, and promoted him to the top of the Vatican Bank!
Francis does not reason in terms of right and wrong, but in terms of friends and enemies; and, being the dim-witted man he is, he does not realise how evident this is to everyone else.
It would be better now for this old, angry, vulgar man to take his age as an excuse and just stay home, avoiding public utterances as much as his unmeasurable ego allows him. No trips, no interviews and, for heaven's sake, no aeroplanes! The time is coming fast when the expensive trips become so embarrassingly empty of faithful, and full of controversies, that not even his most ardent propaganda helpers will be able to conceal the utter failure of this radioactive Pontificate.
When your own Cardinal O'Malley calls your words “inexplicable”, basically saying that you are either a nincompoop out of control or an evil man, you know your Pontificate is on its way down and – hopefully soon – out.
As we are living in unspeakably evil times, let us imagine that the unspeakably evil happens:
Saturday, 13 January 2017, Pope Francis solemnly proclaims ex cathedra the truth of the Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide Protestants tenets. He orders all Catholics to adhere to the new proclamation, which he very formally declares infallible in exercise of the Pope's Extraordinary Magisterium.
Can you say, then, that the Church is a fraud? Certainly not. The Church cannot be a fraud, because it is de fide that the Church is the Bride of Christ and if we declare that false we must declare the whole of Christianity false, which is an absurdity considering that the Church, sound theology and sound reasoning tell us the contrary.
Are works, in this case, not necessary anymore for salvation? Certainly not, as what was true yesterday must be true today and if I do not believe today what I believed yesterday it means that I have lost the faith, and that's that.
If, therefore, the Unspeakably Evil happens, what conclusion shall we draw?
That the Church still exists. With all her rules, traditions and institution.
And that the Sea is vacant.
This is the correct understanding of the situation. Any other interpretation leads ad absurdum, because it contradicts Catholic teaching either in one way (the Pope has the authority to change doctrine) or in the other (a pope who officially, solemnly proclaim heresy has not, ipso facto, made the sea vacant).
Obviously, such a Pope would still be, factually, sitting on the throne of Peter. But it would be only this: a de facto situation which is the fruit of abuse and usurpation, as if Napoleon had proclaimed himself Pope. We would have the duty to refuse obedience to both the usurper and everyone asking us to help him in any way, shape or form.
If the worst happens, there is still a simple, logical, coherent explanation fully in line with Catholic doctrine.
Do not lose your sleep, therefore, thinking what would happen if the Unspeakably Evil came to pass. The Church that has protected sixty generations before you will protect you, too. But she will demand that you believe in Her and in Her Truth, and in Her Bridegroom and His Promise, too. To abandon the Church when you have most need of Her (and She has most need, in a sense, to be defended by you) would be the height of pride and arrogance. But you will stand on the side of Christ and His Bridegroom, no matter what.
I have read somewhere today that the Evil Clown has invited the faithful to silence during Mass, because when one is silent one can “listen to his heart” and, more importantly, “to the Holy Spirit”.
I will gloss over the inanity and banality of the words, probably inedible by a smart child of five. What I would like to point out is the subversive message hidden behind the stupid platitudes.
If I can claim to have the ability to oh so emotionally connect to the Holy Spirit, it might not be long before I claim to “recognise” a message that goes against Doctrine. Being thus persuaded of the goodness of my heart and my Direct Line to the Holy Ghost, I can easily persuade myself of the legitimacy of pretty much everything, like living in adultery and even daring to sacrilegiously present myself at the Communion Line.
What Francis does – in that stupid, sugary, childish way of his – is to encourage his (un)faithful to the very epitome of the sin of Pride: thinking that, in the end, I know better than God.
As you laugh about the arrogance of this man and the travesty of Catholicism he peddles to the Reprobates, please reflect on the many similar ways in which your local priests might try to smuggle the same impious message.
Reality check: I cannot listen to the Holy Ghost like I listen to music, nor can you. The Trinity speaks to me through the Church given to me for my salvation. The Bride talks to me every day through her beautiful, bimillenarian message.
Do not listen to Francis. Francis is an ass, the only thing you can learn from him is how to become unbearably stupid, supremely boring and diabolically subversive. Listen to the Depositum Fidei instead, and learn to know and love Church teaching. Therein, not in your own delusions, lies the Holy Ghost.
I could not trust my eyes as I first saw that Cardinal Brandmueller has given another interview about the Dubia.
Seriously, can you believe this guy?
I have not paid the man the compliment of reading further once I realised what the Cardinal has not done: officially correct the Pope and demand that he retracts or faces the call for a council meant to depose him. But I have perused the article in order to be sure that the correction is not contained therein. I intend to treat every future interview from either him or the other still living kitten in exactly the same way. It's more attention that they deserve.
At this point, it seems fair to me to say that Cardinal Brandmueller is quite happy with his actual position: trying to pose as the orthodox guy and trying to live the rest of his life getting as much press exposure as he can out of his ridiculous, unanswered, half-baked attempt at orthodoxy, even as he has no intention of doing the only thing that would justify him approaching a journalist. He is, truly, like the man who wetted his lips and never whistled, but wants to be praised for his whistling courage anyway.
This behaviour is extremely vain. Vain and shameless. Vain, shameless, and utterly inexcusable.
The Cardinal should, once it is clear that even at his age he is too cowardly to really do anything, at least have the decency to shut the Francis up and live the probably short rest of his life in shame, rather than seeking publicity as if he was a star of conservative Catholicism or even a halfway decent Prelate.
Such a cowardice, and such a vanity, and at such age.
Really, it is no surprise that this disgraceful V II generation has led us to utter chaos.
Two days ago I wrote a blog post stating, without any evocation, that I wish to see Francis dead in 2018. Resigned if needs be. But ideally, dead. Not – it is worth repeating this – because of personal animosity against the man, but because of the evil he is inflicting on the Bride of Christ, and the sustained spitting in the face of the Bridegroom his papacy daily represents.
Only two years ago, such a post would have been followed by a handful of angry comments about my lack of charity, the sweet Peter on earth and such like rubbish. Mind, I would have deleted the comments, but they would have been there in the first place.
This time, nothing. After two full days.
Your humble correspondent draws from this the rather linear conclusion that this papacy has now become such an obvious disgrace, such a permanent threat to Catholic orthodoxy, that the number of those who recoil at the idea of wishing the death of the Evil Clown is dwindling rapidly as his work of destruction becomes evident to the most obdurate Pollyannas around.
By the by, I also notice that for months now I do not recall receiving one single comment stating that Francis is well-intentioned but badly advised, or surrounded by wolves, or suck like nonsense.
This Pope is so stupid, and at the same time such an enemy of the Church, that he is possibly unwilling to see that he has gone too far, and made his relentless attacks on Catholicism so transparent, so evident as to deny their very aim: the deception of the faithful.
Still, the dumbass is so stubborn, and so childish, that he cannot refrain from his constant heretical propaganda. He truly seems a child continuing his tantrums out of sheer spite, and to show to himself that he can (he has, in fact, very weak parents; or bishops as the case may be).
When there is nothing to keep a spoiled brat in check there will be a lot of noise, confusion, and broken toys. But every protestation of the parents notwithstanding – that the child is merely “vivacious”, or “strong-willed” – everyone around clearly understands that this is a spoiled brat, and a stupid child, not kept in check by his weak, disgraceful parents.
Let me say it once again: this man has gone so far in his War on Catholicism that I am rather ready to run the risk of a Tagle or Schoenborn becoming Pope than having this old, lewd ass further defacing Holy Mother Church.
I seem to remember that Winston Churchill once made a joke to friend, at a funeral, reflecting that it is never those whom we wish dead who die.
But then again, at times he must have had his wish, must he not?
Alas, Francis is Pope. Has he, therefore, magisterial authority in whatever he pleases? Let us see.
Your Mathematics teachers at school was in possession of all the qualifications and requisites to teach math. He was, to all intents and purposes, a math teacher, the one with the task to teach you how mathematics works. The teacher had the authority to teach you. You listened to what he said and learned the wisdom he imparted because he was the one tasked with the duty of doing so.
The teacher has, in his own sphere of competence, a magisterial authority, an authority to teach, which is why you attend his lesson.
If your teacher had said to you that 2+2=5, would you have said that this is what the teacher says and therefore it must be true, and that you are bound to believe it, or even that everyone in your class must submit and give assent to what the teacher says?
Why not? Because the teaching authority of the teacher can never contradict the truths of the subject matter he is supposed to teach. His teaching authority only applies within the confines of the truths he exposes. The mathematics teacher cannot make a new mathematics, much less demand that you accept it as in any way binding. A math teacher who teaches falseness about mathematics does not change the rules of mathematics, he merely shows that he is a very bad, incompetent, ignorant teacher and should lose his job (also note here: he will still be a mathematics teacher, no matter how incompetent, until he gets fired).
The same basic logic applies to the wrong teaching of a Pope. Yes, the Pope has a magisterial authority. He has the right and duty, like the teacher, to teach the truths of the faith to all Catholics. But exactly as in the case above, the truths he teaches also mark the boundaries of his magisterial authority. A Pope trying to teach you that “in certain cases” adulterers can receive Holy Communion is even more absurd than a teacher trying to persuade you that “in certain cases” two and two can be five. He has no authority to teach falseness. There is no magisterial authority once a pope has put himself outside of the truths which this magisterial authority serve.
This is basic logic (and Christianity) and there is no need of any encyclical letter or solemn pronouncements stating this. The principle of non contradiction demands that it be so, and even before that Christian obedience does. To think that truth can be changed (by anyone, even by Saint Padre Pio; much less by an Argentinian boor) is nothing short of blasphemous even before being absurd.
No, Francis has no magisterial authority to teach anything that is wrong. This is absolutely obvious and as clear as the sun.
The huge scandal here is not that Francis has “changed” anything. Two and two will never be five. The huge scandal is that we have a Pope trying to persuade us that this is the case.
Oh, the irony! The pope who, more than anyone else, seeks approval among the people is the one who is most ignored by Catholics, non-Catholics and… tourists alike!
The attendance figures from 2013 to 2015 are here, and they are shocking. The figures shop a drop almost as big as the drop in donation for the Clinton foundations. The people of the peripheries just can’t stand this man.
From 50,000 to 16,000 in two short years until 2015 (with the novelty effect built-in at least in the 2013 figures) already speak a clear language. The figures for 2016 are told to be around 10,000, only 20% of the first Francisyear. This 2017 which now goes to an end was very probably even worse.
No one is interested in a Pope who “doesn’t pope”. It’s full of comedians on TV and they at least are funny. A clown with a dour face and a hypocrisy that can be smelled one mile away is of no interest but to those who go for circus attractions and freak shows. Heck, by the numbers of tourists visiting Rome at pretty much every time of the year, one wonders how the figures can be so low.
But then one knows Francis, so this is par for the course.
In these difficult days, I see around me two ways in which some bloggers and commenters try to escape reality.
1) They say that Francis is not the Pope. Wrong. Francis is the Pope because the entire Church, the entire Church hierarchy and the entire planet see him as the Pope. He is not even challenged. Not even by the one (Benedict) who according to some is the real and only Pope. The surreal consequence of this is the decision that the one the entire world sees as Pope should not be it, whilst the one some of them say is the only Pope says that he is merely a retired emeritus, and Francis is in charge. A challenge to a throne without even a challenger simply does not exist; it is fantasy, not fact.
Reality matters. However sad and unprecedented this situation is, we face it without thinking that we can decide who is, or isn't, Pope.
2) They downplay Francis' heretical acts and statement, because they are ready to bend over backwards and produce themselves in the most bizarre contortions in order to avoid stating another facts staring at us in the face: that we have a heretical Pope.
Reality, again, matters. The discussion whether Francis is in formal or material heresy is, if you ask me, less important than the agreement on the fact that should be universally acknowledged: that this Pope fosters error and must now – by the bishops and cardinals – be forced to recant it or deposed.
If Francis' heresy is formal, then he has factually made himself unworthy of and factually resigned his office together with his membership of the Church; but this renounciation would still have to be declared in order to depose him, and until that moment he would still be the holder of the office. In the same way, if a POTUS is found in the act of committing a multiple murder he certainly deserves impeachment, but he is still in office until the impeachment is voted, declared and made operative.
If, on the contrary, Francis' heresy is material, then the preliminary stage would be a last offer to recant his error, albeit such a possibility could be offered, in theory, also to a formal heretic.
The situation is, if you ask me, as clear as the sun, because it appears in front of our eyes with all the evidence of hard facts: a heretic seats on the throne of Peter. Still a heretic, and still sitting, with no challenger in sight. This has happened in the past, will happen in the future, is very sad, and has probably never happened with such virulence (even Honorius could have been weakly defended; Francis is indefensible) in the entire history of the Church. Still, here we are, confronted with facts, not our fanciful and very Protestant interpretation of them.
A heretic seats on the throne of Peter, and we were never given assurance that this would not be the case. His heretical energy and hate for the Church is unprecedented, but do is the rebellion of Vatican II. The most astonishing betrayal of proper theology and abandonment of proper governance must perforce lead to the most astonishing explosion of heresy from the top and abuse from the bottom. This is what V II looked like from the very start; it merely needed sixty years for the ugly face of heterodoxy to completely emerge.
I am merely a layman. No Pope has ever depended on my opinion to decide whether he is really Pope, and it is perfectly right this way. Do not escape from reality. Use it as you would for everything else. Apply common sense and Church Teaching. The Church will get out of this as she has from all the rest.
Every single time Francis does something atrocious, there is the one or other theologian explaining to us that Francis has not proclaimed a new dogma, or abolished Canon 915, or the like.
Yeah, well, interesting as an intellectual curiosity. Still, I think that the approach is totally wrong, and that we must stop circling around the real problem. If there is a hurricane going on, I am not really interested in the way the ozone layer reacts to it, nor am I reassured by the newly imparted knowledge. There is a hurricane going on, this is what counts.
Canon 915 is not just another canon. It reflects perennial teaching of the Church. Therefore, the prohibition of Canon 915 cannot be changed, sabotaged, or otherwise circumvented by anyone, and be him the Pope.
Every article reassuring you that Canon 915 has not been touched actually sends these messages: a) that it could be made, legitimately, hollow at some point in future and: b) that the Canon is being sabotaged but hey, don’t worry, it’s still there!
This is, emphatically, not the case in point. The point is that the Church prohibits communion for adulterers, and Francis is going against this prohibition. Therefore, any discussion about the matter should begin and end with the obvious recognition that no one, not even a Pope, can change iota unum in the matter of communion for adulterers. All the rest is, again, walking around the huge elephant in the room, pretending not to see it.
Which leads to the second matter: heresy. I am not at all interested in the discussion about whether Francis is a formal heretic in the strict sense of the matter. For me, and for every God-fearing Catholic on the street, heresy does not begin when a dogma is officially put in question or denied, or there is an attempt to change it ex cathedra. Heresy is, in the common parlance of God-fearing Catholics, the willed promotion of heterodox thinking and the working in order to subvert what the Church has always believed, irrespective of whether a dogma has been touched or not. Pope John XXII is, rightly, considered a heretical Pope because he promoted such a thinking, even if the contrary belief of the Church had not been declared a dogma yet.
It follows from this that Pope Francis is a heretic and must be seen as such by every God-fearing Catholic; that every one of his actions meant to sabotage the Depositum Fidei in any way, shape or form must be condemned in the strongest terms, and refused obedience; and that we, the God-fearing Catholics, must demand that our Cardinals and Bishops grow a pair already, react to Francis’ endless provocations, and demand that he recants his heretical statements or face deposition.
Which, if it does not happen, does not cause the end of the world, nor the end of the Catholic faith. It merely causes the age to plunge into a deeper state of confusion, analogue to the one experienced in the time of Honorius, A situation of confusion from which, if the Bishops and Cardinals do not intervene, God will free us at some point, when the justly meted punishment for the madness of Vatican II has been recognised, and its evil acknowledged and repented.
A heretical Pope is still the Pope. Honorius was still the Pope. Marcellinus was still the Pope. Liberius was still the Pope. John XXII was still the Pope. There is no Church record stating that they were no Popes during the time of their heterodoxy. Not even the ecumenical council caused by Pope Honorius’ heresies stated such a thing.
But a heretical Pope is a Pope that should, now, be forced to change his ways or deposed (as happened with Marcellinus and John XXII, and did not happen with Honorius and, in a different way, with Liberius); failing which the bishops and cardinals who have refused to act (talking to you, Cardinal Burke!) will pay the most horrible price for their cowardice.
Catholics lived with a heretical Pope before. They are living with a heretical Pope now. Shit and Pope Francis happen. It is not for us to decide who is and is not Pope.
But it is for us to acknowledge an obvious, factual situation and ask that our shepherds do their darn job already.
There are rumours around that a “prestigious” Cardinal (believe me: no such thing in the Year of the Lord 2018) would have become angry at the Evil Clown to the point of raising his voice in a heated exchange. The Cardinal is, it is further rumoured, one who voted for Bergoglio in 2013. The Cardinal would have told the Evil Clown that he wasn't elected to break everything (I assume “sfasciare tutto” is the expression used because it is common in Italy; the raising of the voice also lets me and other deduce the Cardinal was Italian; because hey, we do voice raising pretty well…).
Yours Truly does not think that this is the beginning of the Big Explosion, albeit I would be extremely glad to be proven wrong.
Whoever this Cardinal was, he had no guts to publicly rebuke Francis for Amoris Laetitia. He is, therefore, a wet kitten all right, raising of voice or no raising of voice. He is also, always if we believe the rumour, someone able to vote a semi-Unknown – but through and through V II – Cardinal as Pope in 2013, which is an even worse sign. Finally, he might be one of the many people disappointed that only homos and rabid third-worldists make a career in the Vatican; career being, clearly, the only religion left within the Leonine Walls these days.
There is, therefore, no reason to reasonably hope that Francis' days may now be counted, and the ultimatum given to him of either recanting AL or facing an extraordinary council behind the corner.
However, the episode tells me – and, I think, many others – this: that when the Barque gets a sane Pope again, help might come from unexpected corners, from people whom we rightly despise, from unlikely defenders of the faith. The ways of the Lord, and all that.
It would be wonderfully ironic if, one day, the bomb under Francis' humble chair were to be detonated by godless careerists disappointed for their lack of advancement together with – hopefully – people inspired by the Divine Intervention to put an end to their shameful – and I might be inventing a word here – kittendom.
No, I do not think that any kitten revolt is in the making. But it is consoling to see that some kitten can at least raise their voice.
In these difficult times, we must remember who we are and what we stand for.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty. I do not believe in Francis, the Lewd Commie.
What I believe is perfectly rational, and logical, and holy. What I am living is the consequence of sixty years of V II madness, something I – and we all – knew already.
It would be worse than childish; it would be satanical to start doubting what has been transmitted to us, merely because something is happening that been, also, believed for a long time.
When the ecclesiastical authorities approved the apparition of the Blessed Virgin in Quito, they were fully conscious of the danger that always surround the (earthly) Church. The devil incessantly works to undermine not only your own salvation, but the Christian institutions here on earth: from priests to bishops and from cardinals to popes, Satan looks for those whom he may devour; and by devouring those he may hope (in a way) that many others may come to him through loss of faith and unbelief.
Do you want to be devoured by Satan? No?
Man up, then, and realise that it is our own collective stupidity that has given us all this; a stupidity that begins with John XXIII and ends with the many poisonous fruits of V II, from the openly, now officially heretical Francis to the openly, now officially cowardly Cardinal Burke, the wet kitten meowing about the end of the world instead of doing the only thing he should do: officially denounce the Pope as heretic and demand that he either retract or be deposed by an imperfect Council. But then again this is one who thinks that the SSPX is “in schism”, go figure…
Many will, very obviously, be damned, to whom it was given to be born in these disgraceful times. I have no intention of being counted among them. Do you? No?
Well then, repeat to yourself every day, and every hour, that you will not squander the immense grace of having been, through God's mercy, introduced to proper Catholic instruction even in these disgraceful times. Pray for strength and solid faith, and work on it every day of your life. Do not waiver. Stand firm like a rock against the waves of heresies coming from Francis and his bunch of atheists and homos.
The Christmas now rapidly approaching reminds us that the wonderful, luminous truth lies in that manger, not in the satanical madness of an old, lewd boor.
From what you can read in the link above, it is going to have a nice mixture of what we already know (the arrogance and repression of every Catholic voice and impulse, the astonishing lack of every sense of shame and coherence), what many of us have already suspected (the habitual vulgarity and the explosions of bad temper), and what is new but not surprising (the open opposition of his Jesuit superiors and colleagues, when some of them were still Catholics, to him as a person and to him becoming a Bishop).
It is very consoling to this old heart to see that what was seen, only a couple of years ago, as the unforgiving rant of some bitter bloggers is now becoming a mainstream topic, at the point of having books exclusively centered on the peculiar traits of the Evil Clown being published in several languages.
You are welcome.
As they say in Italy, il tempo e’ galantuomo: time is a gentleman, in that it takes care that everyone is treated fairly. But it is not so, that I – and those who, like me, exposed the crass nature and innate vulgarity of this man – have particular divination instincts.
The reality was there, staring at us in the face. Every Italian mother tongue could easily recognise in the “#azzo” (this is an extremely vulgar Italian word) video the nonchalance, the naturalness of use of the man who is accustomed to pronounce such words often; like you would see in, say, a coarse daily labourer trying to engage in “clean” conversation and failing miserably as his habit has the better of him. It was also not difficult to realise that, among civilised people, refusing to show up at a concert where he was to be the main guest, the host, and the people the invitees where there to see without any warning is the obvious mark and business card of the vulgar boor.
It was all there. One only needed to be willing to see.
I have, by the way, suspected for a long time the Catholicism and general morality of Bergoglio’s parents.
It can, obviously, always be that good parents are tested with a son going totally astray notwithstanding their honest effort. But it is far more probable that negative traits so ingrained in this man (from the obviously extremely vulgar disposition to the great propensity for shameless lies: “soon, soon!”) are the product of either parental environment or careless child raising. Being Italian, I know that demographics: the lowly educated, coarse, vulgar, resentful blue or very low white collars who have been, for decades, the hunting ground of the Communist Party. I have been to school with their children, and I have observed the parents (who were, I am happy to say, so shockingly different from mine). You could easily see that those particular apples had not fallen far from their respective trees. You could also, growing up, easily notice that decent parents never had vulgar sons, only vulgar parents had. You could also see that past the age of mandatory schools (where they almost invariably failed to take advantage of the excellent education system Italy provides to everyone, irrespective of social condition; a trait vastly different from Anglo-Saxon Countries) they rapidly fell behind as those properly raised started to spend countless hours on Latin, Greek, History, Philosophy and other disciplines that, actually, teach you to think, and behave like a decent man, why the sons of the Communist-voting proletariat became exactly like their fathers and mothers, vulgarity and lack of skills included.
I wonder whether some of the coarse, vulgar, bullying, resentful school comrades on my childhood should not have entered a Jesuit seminary instead.
Who knows. In time, they could have become the Pope.
