I have read around the hypothesis that Pope Francis The Heretic, aka as The Evil Clown, might have dropped the bomb of the formal heresy concerning the Capital Punishment in order to deflect the attention from the paedoscandals of his various friends from the USA to Honduras.
I do think the man could be, in fact, as stupid as that.
However, there is a problem (for him): outside of our Catholic circles people really do not care what the Pope says. They do, however, care for the prosecution of pedophiles, and so does the police; at least, if you live in the UK, as long as the paedophiles aren’t Muslims.
The day after the biggest heretical bombs of the last 700 years I went to work in what used to be the Dowry of Mary, and no one said one word to me about the Pope. Nothing. Not one peep.
The Pope could dance the lambada with Cardinal Cupich in St Peter’s Square and this would get him a 10 seconds clip on the BBC between a reportage about “global warming” and an interview to some feminist bitch about the “glass ceiling”. No one who is not a (fairly interested) Catholic would care a straw after the short amusement. It would be forgotten within three minutes.
McCarrick and Co’s problems are in a different league. Prosecutors in Honduras, Chile and the United States are going to go at this and I don’t think there will be much of a cover up at least in the last two of the three States. This is going to stay with Francis for years (if, alas, he lives that long), and no heretical stunt is going to get one prosecutor off his back.
So yeah, if this was the calculation, is was just as dumb as the rest.
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.
