“I Am A Hypocrite”, Pope Finally Says

Circus Bergoglio was once again in town...

If we want to follow the way of Jesus, the Pope concluded, “more than accusers, we have to be defenders of others before the Father. I see a bad thing in someone – do I go defend him? No! But keep quiet! Go pray and defend him before the Father as Jesus does. Pray for him, but do not judge! Because if you do, when you do something bad, you will be judged. Let us remember this well; it will do us good in everyday life when we get the urge to judge others, to speak ill of others, which is a form of judging. “

It is difficult, by this kind of article, to understand whether the Unholy Father really wanted to put it that way, or whether the journalist (who might be, say, an adulterer, or one who has some skeleton in his family's closet) is “embellishing” what the Pope has said in order to push his own “do not judge me, mom”-agenda.

Certainly, though, the phrase above, if there was no corrective or explanation or delimitation, is not only worthy of a child of five, but the most cruel indictment of one's own Papacy ever pronounced by any Pope.

The only attempt I can make at trying to let this man not appear a total child is in the phrase:

“The person who judges,” the Pope said, “is wrong, is mistaken and is defeated” because he assumes God’s place: He who is the one and only judge.”

Here it would appear – if we seek with the lantern – that what Francis condemns is the judgment that “assumes God's place” (that is: wants to decide about ultimate judgment). But there is no going around the fact that Francis must perfectly well know how his words will be interpreted worldwide; which, even if he were a total retard, the reaction to his infamous “do not judge” remark would have taught him very well indeed.

Note also another example of Francispeak, when the Unholy Father says “to judge others, to speak ill of others”. here, the major subject is “to judge others”, and the minor subject is “to speak ill of others”. The Pollyannas will run to explain to you that when Francis says “those who judge”, he means “those who speak ill” in an obvious malevolent way. The entire planet will get, as desired by Francis, only the “do not judge” part in the only meaning they know.

We are here, therefore, in front of the usual Modernist, and utterly Jesuitical, exercise of proclaiming the gospel of the heathen to the heathen, but then hiding here and there vague traces of soundness, knowing that properly instructed Catholic may – if they are of the Pollyanna kind – clutching at the two or three straws they will find as if their life depended on it. The result? Millions of people living in grave sin will suddenly decide no one has the right to tell them anything, and will continue to live in sin to their grave.

There can be no doubt for sound thinking people that Francis is, once again, espousing – at least for the benefit of the clapping crowd – the modern ideology of ” do not judge” that has given us all the decline and all the abomination we see around us every day, whilst the hypocrite clergy betrays Christ whilst feigning a very good heart. This would be a scandal in the mouth of any prelate, but is a very special scandal in the mouth of a Bishop of Rome.

This is the Pope who, more than any other before him and probably after him, launches himself in wholesale condemnations anytime his teeth feel the need for some fresh air. This is, also, the Pope who is persecuting the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate with a ferocity that you can only expect from these “do not judge”-people. Thirdly, this is the Pope who, not later than some days ago, brought the level of his own public judgment to a non-existent declaration of “collective excommunication”. Isn't he supposed, according to… himself, to “go and defend them in front of the Father?” The stupidity, or hypocrisy, or outright carelessness and arrogance is breathtaking.

This is, undoubtedly, either the first infant intellect that has become Pope, or one of the most evil ones, or one who simply has lost the faith and doesn't care a fig for anything else than himself; and is therefore not even bothered with being evil, merely with doing what is convenient to him on the day.

Note here that the phrase reported above makes clear that Francis is not considering the word “judging” in the sense traditionally employed by Catholic (where “judging” means to erect oneself to judge by deciding of the salvation or damnation of a person, or to speak of someone rashly or with malevolence), but he is openly and frontally criticising the work of mercy of admonishing the sinner, and the meritorious work of those who, confronted with scandal, react to it so that the faithful may not be confused, and the unfaithful may not be led even more into sin.

If Satan were to appear on earth and start preaching, he would probably start in a way similar to Francis: no one can criticise anyone, and when you see everyone around you giving scandal, keep quiet!

That out of this the destruction of every Christian morality must follow in time – because humans are frail, and prone to sin, and need rebuking, and correcting, and reminding of hell, and all that jazz – Francis either doesn't see, or he sees and pursues it, or he just doesn't care because he does not believe in any form of judgment after death himself.

I will continue to look on the internet to see whether Francis has given some correction to the statement. But again, the statement reported above is long and elaborate enough that, whatever correction Francis may have built in the course of his sermon, it will be used by the usual crowd of the enemies of Truth.

What keeps astonishing every thinking and sane person is the utter carelessness with which this man contradicts every day what he has said the day before, without being in the least concerned with appearing I do not say wise, but at least not an utter clown.

He might, though, know the masses better than we do; because whilst a minority of sane people does understand what nincompoop – or worse – this man is, it appears the vast majority can live very well with his senseless waffle; be it because they are too thick to know better, or because Francis tells them what they desperately want to hear, and they end the conscience's debate by saying to themselves “if even the Pope thinks that way, who am I to judge myself?”

We live in very stupid times.

There is no doubt that we have a Pope to match.

“We May And Must Judge And Rebuke” Vs “Keep Quiet!”

If we want to follow the way of Jesus, the Pope concluded, “more than accusers, we have to be defenders of others before the Father. I see a bad thing in someone – do I go defend him? No! But keep quiet!  Go pray and defend him before the Father as Jesus does. Pray for him, but do not judge! Because if you do, when you do something bad, you will be judged. Let us remember this well; it will do us good in everyday life when we get the urge to judge others, to speak ill of others, which is a form of judging. “

Pope Francis

 

“Concerning those things, then, which are known to God, unknown to us, we judge our neighbors at our peril. Of these the Lord hath said, ‘Judge not, that you may not be judged.’ But concerning things which are open and public evils, we may and must judge and rebuke, but still with charity and love, hating not the man, but the sin, detesting not the vicious man but the vice, the disease more than the sick man.

For unless the open adulterer, thief, habitual drunkard, traitor, or proud man were judged and punished, in them would be fulfilled what the blessed martyr Cyprian hath said, ‘He who soothes a sinner with flattering words provides fuel for his sin”.

Saint Augustine

May the Lord have mercy of the wolves in Popes’ clothes.

Reblog: “Judging”

“A Franciscan Take On Judging”

The Absurdity Of “Who Am I To Judge”

Ultimately, only God judges. We all know that; particularly Catholics, who are able to pray even for dead heretics. About this, there can be no discussion.

Astonishingly, though, cafeteria Catholics – including some priests – want to do away with the very same concept of “judging” as evaluation of the sinfulness of a certain behaviour. The absurdity of this is apparent.

Thinking – nay, Life itself – is made of judging. I cannot try to keep myself on the straight and narrow, let alone raise a child, without a continuous evaluation of the sinfulness of mine and other people's actions.

Only an extremely stupid father would not “judge” the bad company his son or daughter is getting attracted to. Judgment is part of the very act of social living, from the friends we choose to the job we make. Again, our very existence is a moral judgment.

Some bishops try to water down the “do not judge” mantra whilst staying orthodox, and say that whilst the Church cannot judge individuals, she can and must judge behaviour. Obviously, this refers to the fact that God only “judges” in the sense of “pronounces a sentence of salvation or perdition”, but this way of looking at things also avoids the point. It is not enough to point out to a wrong behaviour. If a person gives public scandal, he himself must be the object of the Church's – and every Catholic's – public reproach. The Church has always done so, and good Christians have always done so.

How could one “admonish the sinner” – a work of mercy, remember! – without having, ahem, “judged” him as such? How blind, how stupid, how unchristian, how uncharitable is it to just shut up under the pious excuse that one does not judge? Isn't silence a way to be accessory to another's sin?

It appears, though, that for some people, and even priests – I do not link the article – even only judging a behaviour would be bad, and unchristian, and uncharitable! Then they reason, if Titius is a faggot and a Pope condemns faggotry, how can this not be a “judgment” of the faggot? It must, therefore, even be wrong to “judge” faggotry, lest the faggot should feel “judged”!

Seriously, these people can't think.

If a Christian is expected to “not judge” anything, then Christianity must simply vanish. Either is it true that a death in mortal sin leads to damnation, or it isn't. If it is true, then there is no logical alternative to the condemnation not only of scandalous behaviour, but also of the people who give scandal. Conversely, the refusal to condemn can only mean that it is not true that death in mortal sin leads to damnation. Tertium non datur.

I doubt the modern apostles of this Anti-Christianity think their rubbish to the end; but if they did, they would probably in their majority conclude that yes, they do not think damnation is a real, serious, concrete possibility, and therefore any attempt to avoid damnation – either for the sinner or for those misled by him – is totally uncalled for.

Again, this seems to be the thinking not only of very deluded men, but even of people – some priests – whose very profession rests on the necessity to care for the sheep so that they do not go astray. What use is a priest in this constellation, is beyond me.

We see here once again how easy it is to use – I do not say “abuse” – Francis' words to promote something that cannot be recognised as Christianity anymore, but lets people feel good with themselves.

What Bishop Francis is not devastating directly, he is devastating indirectly. An army of nutcases will serve themselves of his words to ravish Catholicism; words Francis throws around exactly for this purpose.

We are all saved. Have a nice life.

Make a mess.

And most of all, do not “judge”.
