You know those old people who keep talking of their own impending demise merely in order to hear others assuring them they still have long years in front of them? Well, one of them is Pope.
It is now rather “officially unofficial” that TMAHICH does not think of resigning. Not in the least. The “my pontificate will not be long” blabber had only one aim: to play the old man with his thoughts now oh so directed to heaven, whilst – if you ask me – a more worldly Pope may never have darkened the magnificent doors of the Vatican City.
Resigning? The Humble Pope likes the perks of the job all right. His ego has expanded more than his circumference. Who knows, perhaps the expansion of the second will put an end to the expansion of the first?
I am a tad disappointed as I would have preferred further hints at a possible future resignation. Just to make my day a bit better, you see. But honestly, I would not have believed them in that case, either. An excuse to feel forced – in all humbleness – to keep wreaking damage would be easy to find anyway.
No, the Unholy Father was just being coquettish. Look at me, the humble old man. Look at me, the one who is not about career at all. Look at me, the Great Mercy Reformer. But most of all: look at me.
I do not wish him a long pontificate, and therefore cannot wish him – now that it is clear he wants to die in office – a long life. I am reminded of Schopenhauer rather dry mot d’esprit when the old woman to whom he was forced to pay a pension died: obit anus, abit onus. “The old (woman) dies, the burden goes away”.
Those same words I hope I will write, on this blog, rather sooner than later; because if you love the Church for tea and not only as an empty slogan you cannot, you most certainly cannot wish for this pontificate to go on for another day; nay, for another hour. Not, of course, out of hate for the man; but out of love for the Church.
Still, it is consoling to think that the Lord has Francis on an “at will” employment contract. He can fire Francis anytime, and without any notice period at all. Bam. Gone. Next.
I will submit to His wisdom in this, and will do my best to live with the punishment God has sent us every day.
But I think it’s clear what I desire for the Church: that the old man dies, and the burden goes away.
Pray that the Lord, in His own good time, frees us from this scourge.
It’s hard enough to have to endure such a Pope to also have to deal with the coquettish remarks, and shattered hopes.
Via Call me Jorge, I republish this wonderful work from Miles Christi,
This beautiful work is not a collection of comments or articles, but it has countless quotes from the man himself, all with references and Internet links. The document goes on for twelve pages. How much work went into it I do not even want to think. It is updated to 2 December 2014; which means, in two words, pre-Rabbitgate time.
In order to properly understand TMAHICH and his mentality I quote another pearl from this man, also mentioned by Call me Jorge:
– Francis in 7 December 2014 interview –
We truly live in maddening times.
The blogger of Vox Cantoris, a perfectly orthodox Catholic blog mentioned here a couple of times, has been threatened with a lawsuit if eleven posts concerning the very same Father Rosica, and all of them concerning his public activity and statements, are not removed.
Bravely, the blogger has already indicated he will not comply.
I am not an expert in Canadian law, but it seems extremely difficult to imagine the letter has any chance at all of being successful.
Rather, it seems to me that here something different is at stake: a Vatican official uses a financial muscle (the threat of a very expensive, long-drawn lawsuit) to shut up a faithful Catholic blogger.
Father Rosica is, in a way, the number two of Father Lombardi, and they often appear together at press conferences. I repeat it again, none of the posts make allegations about Father Rosicas private life or affairs, and there is no trace of slander. That a man working with the press would try to silence the free expression of opinion in this way truly beggars belief.
Some questions are now, I think, ripe:
1) How long can the oh so merciful TMAHICH pretend he does not know of this? Will he stubbornly shut up as he did, and still does, in the FFI matter? (Oh well, wait! He said “soon, soon” to the old couple! An obvious lie!).
2) How can Father Rosica remain at his place if he shows such obvious contempt for the very freedoms that make his job?
3) How many dozen of other blogs will Father Rosica have to sue now? Do we want to call them, say, twenty-four, in at least half a dozen jurisdictions?
Vox Cantoris is on a “Blogger” platform. I can, therefore, not reblog his posts. I could link to them, but the link would not work if the posts are removed.
If any, ahem, “Blogger” blogger wants to reblog his posts, I think this will have the effect that the posts would remain on the blog of the “reblogger” even if they were to be removed from the original site; a decision which Mr Domet could take at any time.
Let me make clear that I would not blame Mr Domet if he decided that he wants to be able to blog in peace, and sleep at night. But I appreciate it the much more, if he decides to fight this fight for all of us.
As Mr Domet has obviously decided he wants to see Father Rosica’s cards, I invite every Catholic blogger of good will, including priest bloggers, to give vast echo to this matter and make their voice heard.
I beg of you. I implore you. If you are thinking of starting a blog, do so anonymously.
We live in strange and disturbing times.
I have few doubts the environ-mental encyclical of Pope Dope (aka TMAHICH, The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History) will be released within the year, officially documenting the shame of this pontificate for all centuries to come. It might be interesting to reflect a bit about the situation of the Catholic Neocons in the matter.
Like most people with a working brain, Neocons reject environ-mentalism. They will be, very soon, confronted with a massive example of this atheist madness, from the very Pope. It will be impossible to ignore the message, because this time we will not be in front of an off-the-cuff comment, but of a very official document. Every Neocon will have to pick a side, and to take a stance. What options will he have?
1. Hide behind the finger, and trying not to ignore, but to deflect the issue. Admit that one is “confused”, and finds the words of the Pope “unusual” and “surprising”. Perch oneself just at the top of the fence and stay there, hoping no one notices the discomfort or the ridicule of such a posture. It won’t work, because Francis is the character that does not allow anyone to sit on the fence: either you are a revolutionary, or a counter-revolutionary.
2. Espouse the madness, and cave in to enviro-terrorism. Very few will do it, perhaps even among the Pollyannas. Every Catholic with a bit of a Catholic instinct knows that you do not follow blindly whatever the Pope says. It takes a SS-mentality to change one’s stance and follow the Pope on this.
3. Draw the consequences from the Pope’s statement and say it bluntly: this is in principle no matter of faith and morals and actually, if we look at it seriously, Francis’ stance goes against faith and moral. That’s it. Yes, the Pope is wrong. Get over it.
My suspicion is that Francis’ new anti-Western push will move a good number of tepid Neocons toward position number 3; particularly so, because the issue of environ-madness is a highly emotional one, and they are not going to be swayed on this by one they do not even like. When this happens, these very Neocons will be forced to reflect that a Pope who abuses the instrument of an encyclical to promote his own pet peeves, or to promote an actually anti-Catholic agenda, isn’t worth much and is abusing of his office as Pope.
I suggest to my readers that whenever they come into contact with such Neocons they take the initiative and ask them how they view the Pope’s stance on the Environment: whether they unconditionally approve, or think that this is a matter for an encyclical letter, and the like. After the obligatory “hhmmm” and “uuuhhhhmmmm” some serious thinking might well be about to start.
Francis is driving Neocons to the wall. He is leaving them nowhere to hide. His blunt activism will require of them to make a choice.
Hopefully, the right one.
Not for the first time, one is overwhelmed from the sheer amount of populism, stupidity, and utter heresy coming out of the mouth of this amateur Pope.
Some days ago he threw around generic statements about everyone belonging to the Church being saved (isn’t he awfully nice, this Pope? So generous!). I wanted to write about it, but then the other bomb in Turkey exploded. Actually a very big one, accompanied by minor explosions concerning the usual stupid things Francis always does and says.
I wonder whether I should rename this blog “TMAHICH: Chronicles Of A Horrible Papacy”; but then I reflect a Catholic blog should always be about more than the latest utterances of a subversive Pontiff, and even in matters of Franciscan insanity should pay attention to the broader view, rather than to the single fact.
Therefore, I will now have to choose whether the Black Friday Salvation Sale or the “Bless us, Schismatics, because we are the True Church” gets my attention. This, of course, unless in the meantime Pope Dope comes along with some other statement about, I don’t know, prostitutes being the salt of the earth, thieves being a wonderful example of Catholicism, and people who don’t prostitute themselves and don’t steal being dead inside, or something like that…
I will, therefore, not give up. Just bear with me if I can’t report about everything. It is safer for you to assume that for every major piece of nonsense I write about, TMAHICH has uttered somewhere between two and four if you put everything together (from the outright blasphemy to the shameless populism, and from his excursions in the realms of economics to his immigration policies, and scientific beliefs).
In all this mess, though, there seems to be a sort of silver lining: it cannot be doubted that the secular world out there pays less and less attention to the man, now more and more broadly regarded as an old nincompoop with no clue by the atheist mass media and the binge drinking masses.
This Pope has always been an attention whore, but his whoring seems to become bigger as the degree of attention he gets decreases. One and a half year ago, washing the feet of infidels and women caused a huge uproar. Nowadays, accusing the US of “State Terrorism” (which he did; though obviously the Jesuit way, as “who am I to judge” and everything else) barely registers on the boredom scale.
It will, I am afraid, get worse before it gets better, because whoring even more is what the attention whore does when she does not get the desired attention. But at some point, even this bonehead might understand that the public isn’t applauding, and might be persuaded to avoid making as ass of himself as much as he can.
He has 100% Italian DNA.
Boy, I am ashamed.
The recent statements of TMAHICH concerning the Theory of Evolution have caused a lot of discussions.
I have already posted some words about the Theory of Evolution. Now I would like to spend some words about what the Unholy Father said about this. I would focus on three aspects: the mind frame, the actual words, and the obvious theological implications.
1. The Pope who thinks that perhaps the Blessed Virgin thought “Lies! I have been deceived!”, or the like, at the foot of the cross seems not to have any doubt about the Theory of Evolution, at all. Where he should have certainties, he has doubts. Where he should have (serious) doubts, he has certainties. Francis is, through and through, a secular mind.
2. The words are, as so often by him, said in Francispeak. His words can mean both the God is not a wizard with a magic wand, and that God is inherently unable to create a world from nothing, and men from nothing, without “helping Himself” with an evolutionary mechanism. The first meaning is nothing more that the usual banal drivel we hear from this man when he is not being heretical. The second is extremely serious. This seems to me a kow-towing to the secular mentality, besides being obviously blasphemous. It is as if Francis would say to the world: “whilst I must tell you that I believe in God because I am the Pope, I will show you I am on your side by making Him as little as I can”.
Ambiguity, confusion, possible blasphemy. This must be Francis speaking, then.
3. The most important aspect is one that, surprisingly, seem to have been rather neglected in the commentaries. I do not believe for a moment that Francis is particularly interested in pushing any kind of evolutionary theory in biological matters. This is not what he is working at. What TMAHICH wants to achieve is to push the idea of an evolutionary theology. Evolutionary not in the sense of growing as, say, an oak evolves, but in the sense of transforming in something completely different from what was before; something very pleasing to Monsignor Ricca, Elton John, Rabbi Skorka, adulterers, concubines, and in short, the world.
The talk of “god of surprises” (lack of capitalisation intentional) and all the drivel about the Holy Ghost leading us to ever new truths is exactly in the same vein.
Francis does not even want to be an heresiarch. He wants to be your new god. What he says, is your new religion. Your religious convictions must change according to where he says the spirit leads him. One would be tempted to say that he has appointed himself the fourth person of the… Holy Tetrarchy, if there were not sufficient doubts already that he believes in both the Second and the Third Person, as proved by his saying that Jews and Muslims believe in the same God as the Christians. But then again this is the same person who states “there is no God! Do not be afraid!” and then proceeds to explain to us there are only… the three Persons, basically being heretical again in that casual, am-I-not-super-cool, half-drunk way of his.
This Is what I found, the other day, most disquieting in Francis' words: his continuous push on this concept of “evolution” into something that is not evolution at all but radical change, contradiction, negation. The speech in question was, if you ask, just another way of preparing the 2015 Synod.
Do not worry too much about the wizard.
Worry about the clown instead.
TMAHICH has given another example of boundless hypocrisy and utter carelessness today for what he has said yesterday.
The family is being “bastardised”, he decries. Nowadays, so much is called “family”.
Well, let me think aloud here.
The family would be less bastardised if there were no Archbishops sending their priests in the slums, allowing mass sacrilege as they permit everyone to receive communion in a context in which 80% or more of couples are not married and, therefore, presumably 80% of children are bastards.
There is, in fact, no way to bastardise the family more effectively than what Francis has done as Archbishop and is doing as Pope: allowing mass sacrilege in his own diocese, devaluing marriage as he allows concubines to receive, marrying in his capacity as Pope public concubines, allowing the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires to baptise poor children “adopted” by goddamn dykes, and in general sabotaging the very idea of family with a Synod full of heresy, blasphemy and sexual perversion.
Francis is like a Hitler complaining of Antisemitism. With the important difference that Hitler at least did not have the stunning hypocrisy of decrying what he himself promoted day in and day out.
Francis is here, clearly, trying to remake a virginity by appearing a defender of the family. He is in fact, and remains, its worst enemy. He is merely being his Modernist self, and throwing some pigeon feed to the Pollyannas so that they may now storm the comment boxes of blogs and fora singing the praise of Francis The Defender Of Family.
The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History has opened his mouth again, and again he has given us a demonstration of his breathtakingly double-tongued persona.
Don’t believe one word of what he says. Francis may not be, technically at least, a bastard; but his Catholicism is not even recognisable as bastardised.
It is just not there.
If laws do not lead people to Christ then they are obsolete,
Pope Francis, homily of the 13 October 2014, the day of the Relatio post disceptationem.
[We must avoid] The temptation to neglect the “depositum fidei”, not thinking of themselves as guardians but as owners or masters [of it];
Pope Francis, address to the Synod Fathers, five days later.
I keep calling him The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History, and I hope by now most of my readers understand why.
Five days after triumphantly announcing – on the same day of the Relatio which clearly bears his heretical stamp – a new post-Christian era, this man dares to warn us from the temptation of becoming… exactly like him.
The army of Faggotry has had a setback this week, but there is no hoping that this is the end of the satanical pro-faggotry, sacrilegious madness fueled by TMAHICH and his minions.
Give it a couple of weeks at the most, and interviews from dissenting (from the Magisterium) bishops will start to appear, in order to gather for them Brownie Points with Francis.
The publication of the shameless Relatio will now lead to what was planned all along: the opening of a “debate”, a “discussion” between orthodoxy on one side, and sacrilege and sodomy on the other.
Whilst it is obvious the Pope did not want to start the “discussion” with a bleeding nose and a black eye, it is perfectly clear this kind of “debate” is what was planned all along, and this is what we are now going to get. And no doubt, The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History will be the one who fuels it from the very first line with more outlandish, or outright heretical, or utterly blasphemous statements.
It is clear enough by now that most Bishops do not want such a discussion at all, because Truth is not questioned and is no object for debate. But the homo troops will be reorganised in a matter of weeks, perhaps days. When the big media noise has subsided, it will be the time to start advancing again: timidly at first, more and more strongly as the months pass.
We need strong leaders now. We need Bishops and Cardinals who are actually afraid of going to hell, and put their duty to Christ before the rich privileges of their positions. When Christians in Africa and Asia risk their lives everyday just for going to Mass, it is perfectly reasonable to ask consecrated Bishops, people who should be ready to die for Christ at a moment’s notice, to run the risk of losing a diocese, and being sent to some remote and unpleasant location, at the very worst.
Some names have emerged in the last days. Cardinals Burke, Mueller, Pell, and Napier seem to me the four most courageous ones, the elite of the Christian troops in this very difficult moment. And I say this with admiration for Cardinal Mueller: a man of very questionable theological integrity concerning the Perpetual Virginity of our Blessed Lady and the Resurrection; but who has, when severely tested, reacted in an exemplary manner.
In the same vein, I am less than impressed by the silence of two names that could, I think, be expected to be among the voices claiming in the wilderness. Cardinal Piacenza is the first, and Cardinal Bagnasco is the second. The latter has, it is very true, shamefully caved in to Francis’ Gospel of inclusiveness in a past, very scandalous occasion, but it would still have been a legitimate expectation to see him, a man to whim many look as at a protector of orthodoxy, to speak clearly enough to make world news. The former is a riddle to me. A man who has never, to my knowledge, compromised his faith, has now allowed others to expose themselves to the ires of the Gay Army whilst – as far as I can see – not voicing any criticism strong enough to put him in the first line of the Resistance. Perhaps he is working with them behind the scenes. Perhaps he will intervene when his friends decide that the time is right. Perhaps the English-speaking press has ignored his strong criticism. I am grateful for links to his public utterances in these days, in whatever language. It would be a great joy to be able to count Cardinal Piacenza among the Very Brave.
Let us pray for Mueller, Pell, Napier, and particularly Burke, the first one of this brave troop to open his mouth and, from what I could read up to now, the most outspoken. But Francis needs to be questioned and criticised publicly far more strongly than this has been the case up to now.
The word “heresy” is still nowhere to be heard. We need for brave Cardinals to get into the next gear now, openly denouncing the heresy and putting the Pope in front of the choice of either openly supporting or openly recanting it.
Half words will not serve anyone now. If Francis is allowed to sit on the fence he will have reached his main objective: to sit there as the “referee” of a “friendly match” between two “pastoral views”. This is what he wanted all along.
There are no two pastoral views. There is orthodoxy on one side, and heresy on the other.
We need strong Cardinals calling Kasper’s doctrine heretical, and doing the same with the Pope if he does not condemn it. We need this vulcan to erupt in the open now, if we want to avoid the subterranean subversion of Catholicism to go on as the Pope threatens, persuades, cajoles and corrupts in the next twelve months and beyond.
The moment is now.
Who will take the lead?
The extent of the events yesterday cannot be underestimated. It is obvious that a deep malcontent was already there. It is also obvious Francis, Kasper and Baldisseri thought they could keep treating the bishops like the pussycats they have been in the last nineteen months (and for a long time before then). What has happened afterwards could, one day, be remembered as the turning of the tide.
Notice the dynamic. As rather often in life, it needs for only a few strong men to stand up, and others will find the courage to follow. On this occasion, Cardinal Pell has the honour, though there is no doubt the strong cannon fire from others (I put above all Cardinal Burke and Cardinal Mueller; more worthy of praise because more exposed, and with much to lose) had created the ground for what was to happen.
One man stands up, and says that enough is enough. Openly, he accuses Cardinal Baldisseri – and for all those who have eyes to see, which yesterday included all the bishops, the Pope – of manipulating the Synod, making of it the contrary of what it was from the very start.
It must be said to his partial credit, and as a little contribution toward washing away a shame that will remain with him for life, that Cardinal Erdo also found some courage to talk. Possibly, because desirous to show himself on the street when back. Stones are hard in Budapest, I am told.
Interestingly, what happens next is that Baldisseri refuses, and keeps the course. This behaviour, instead of the more natural referral to the Unholy Father, can only be explained with a strategy, decided beforehand, to crush every opposition and get on with the program. “Let the one or other pussycat meow”, they must have decided together with Kasper. “They will be told to shut up, and will promptly comply”.
It wasn’t to be. Enough was, this time, truly enough.
The bishops rebel like one man. The situation has now changed. This is no revolt in kindergarten anymore. Threats of not coming back to the Synod next year had been already leaked, and there could be no more public indictment of a Pope than this one: to ignore him and say in front of the entire world “let the man blubber, and don’t do what he says”.
At this point, no one could have done differently. Baldisseri is on the ground, his position and credibility now wounded to death. The leaking will obviously become a deluge if he insists. If the bishops leave the room, this papacy will be destroyed, with an indictment obvious even for Patheos bloggers to see.
Tosatti at this point refers – boy, the synod room leaks like a sieve: hagan lio! – the turning point of the morning: Baldisseri looking at Francis.
How I would have wanted to be there! These are the moments that make Church history! A bully by both nature and long liberal practice, Francis’ instinct must have been to shut them up, and demand that his wish be their command. But the man has lived too much – wasted years, I admit – not to understand the dynamics at play.
In those moments, he must have seen very vividly in front of his eyes the ruin of his pontificate. Francis The Merciful, Francis The Gentle Uncle, Francis The Apostle Of Collegiality, openly refused by his own Bishops I do not say obedience, but respect and credentials of orthodoxy. The entire world – not only the Catholic one – would have woken up discovering that the Pope is a heretic. The press offensive would have been an atomic mushroom, because when a bishop refuses obedience to a Pope and says his positions, doctrinal stance and character are not acceptable, he must most certainly explain himself.
The man knows all this. He is a Jesuit after all. He sees the atomic mushroom about to rise.
He remains there, dark in the face, silent.
Nay: he remains there, humiliated, and silenced.
Oh, how he must have hated them! All that he always despised: the “joyless”, “sanctimonious”, “holy-card-faced”, “Pharisees”, “Neo-Pelagians”, perhaps (some of them) even “rosary-counting” Catholics standing there in front of them, an ocean of red and purple caps! Rebelling to him, the Humble Lider Maximo himself!
Francis did not say anything, apparently. But we know what he must have thought:
“Just you wait”.
At this point, the battle of the day was decided. Francis was challenged to come out in the open, and he didn’t show up.
The entire narrative of the synod has now collapsed. The reports of the small groups are now published, and it is extremely clear the synod that we have been sold has never happened. Cardinal “I think the majority is with me” Kasper is exposed as a miserable liar. Orthodoxy, as a whole and even if in the usual, weak V II way, was defended from day one, from the vast majority of the bishops.
This isn’t even a revolt. This is a bloodbath. This is Francis’ comeuppance made “small report”, for everyone to read and stun at the extent of the deception and manipulation. This is a complete, if not sufficiently strong, indictment of the entire “age of mercy”, of the Satanic excrements we have been given up to now, and that were sold to us as the New Truth; because, according to this devil in white, this enemy of Christ and master of lies, “if laws don’t lead people to Jesus, they are obsolete”.
What will Francis do now? He will do what old Jesuit manipulators always do. He will lick his wounds as he works in the dark, unleashing his hounds against the bishops outside of camera attention. Perhaps he will send one or two “orthodox” messages, to try to divide the public opinion and to lead some into thinking he may not be a died-in-the-wool material heretic after all. He will work outside of the cameras’ attention to the intimidation of many bishops, as he keeps embracing wheelchairs and making well-planned “spontaneous” stops with his humble Ford Focus. He will, make no mistake, keep being TMAHICH.
But something, I think, has now changed forever. This slap cannot be “un-slapped”. He has been exposed as a liar, a hypocrite, and a manipulator. May this not be said with these exact words, the substance of what the Bishops have said and done yesterday is clear. The bucks stops at the Pope.
I have said it before (actually, even before things came to yesterdays’ showdown) that this is an unprecedented revolt after an unprecedented blasphemy.
But at the same time, it was a glorious day. A day that must make the Modernists stop and think, and realise it won’t be a walk in the park. It will be, in fact, a huge mess, and a battle that will be sung in the centuries to come.
One feels today as if Liberius or Honorius had been publicly denounced by their own bishops. It is as if the Ottaviani Intervention had gathered with it the Conciliar Fathers as one man. It is so big.
Further battles lie before us, and particularly before the bishops. The Jesuit will come back with a vengeance, and no trick or weapon will be left unused. The bishops must understand what is going on, and resist as one man, denouncing all of them every attempt at intimidation made to one of them. They are (largely, and loosely, but still…) on the side of orthodoxy. There is no way in hell a Pope can fight them en masse and save face.
But this here was huge.
Pray for the Bishops, that they find the strenght and moral fortitude, now that the conflict has exploded, to continue on the path of Truth.
It was the day the pussycat roared. These things do not happen simply out of human forces.
What a glorious day.
A glorious day today. Glorious, probably, as much as the Church of V II will ever be able to be glorious.
The pussycat has roared. Unbelievable. Evidently, there are forces at work going beyond the mere frailty of humans.
The path seems clear to me. Notwithstanding the successful revolt of today (which I can only see as an unprecedented, public humiliation of TMAHICH, The Most Astonishing Hypocrite In Church History; who decided it is wiser to shut up, for the moment at least, and at least in public) what we are going to assist to in the coming twelve months is:
1. A massive intimidation of bishops,
2. A massive inculturation through Catholic media (have you read the “Catholic Herald” on Monday and Tuesday? It was like reading the “Tablet”, or rather the Voelkischer Beobachter…), and
3. Another massive intervention through the Six Little Pigs nominated by Francis; and I wonder whether Archbishop “Faggot” Forte will be even allowed to remain in the game; which, if true, would be enough to make every retard understand what kind of game is being played here.
The way the bishops must react to this is very simple, and I would say unavoidable: the must raise the stakes and not only denounce the intimidation publicly – they are enough, and angry enough to do so with a devastating blow, as today has abundantly showed – but publicly denounce the Kasperite madness as heresy.
This is the only way the wolves now working in the corridors, threatening, promising, cajoling, and dividing, can be exposed once and for all.
Denounce the heresy very hard and very loudly. Give it Kasper’s name. Let the Pothead in Chief, then, either shut up or say openly, publicly, for all the world to see that he officially supports Kasper’s heresy. This morning at the latest he has understood that if he dared to stand up and put himself squarely on the side of Kasper his papacy would be destroyed, and Catholicism would resound of the sound of bishops calling the Pope a heretic, and demanding his resignation. The crystal statue of this disgraceful papacy would be destroyed in one thousand little splinters. Try to make anything meaningful in these conditions, Frankie boy, and good luck to you.
Kasper is the ideal way to reaffirm orthodoxy without officially striking Francis; actually, leaving him one last possibility to retreat in good order. He might also, once he has seen what wind is blowing, reflect about jetting himself off to Argentina, where he would be able to stink of sheep as much as he wants for all the time he has left.
But this is the time to resist to the Kasperite and Bergoglite arrogance and intimidation with a decisive blow; now that the Catholicism with a brain is in a state of shock, wondering at what point of homosexual perversion and prostitution to the world things have come; now that even among the bishops – the last ones to wake up – the cry can be heard loud and clear: enough.
The conclusion of the small groups that I have read up to now (courtesy, as always, of Rorate) is encouraging, albeit – predictably – the Vatican II style of writing and thinking is still too evident to be ignored (“such lifestyles do not lead to human fulfillment” to describe mortal sin and public scandal; a language that would have been considered far too weak any day before Monday). Still, from what I have read up to now something clear emerge: that beyond some blabla of circumstance, the Church’s stance is not going to change. Not if you ask the bishops, not if the massive pressure is resisted.
Francis is now at a crossroads: if he continues to thread with the grace of an elephant on dope the punishment will be swift, but I am sure he got this. He has tried the surprise attack, and it has not worked. His tanks are retreating, but they are not dispersed. They will regroup in the coming weeks and months. What he will do, is to start a subterranean war of attrition: intimidation for the strong, and inducements for the weak.
But if the bishops are smart, they will realise that Francis isn’t the type to forgive and forget. Look at the FFI. Francis will make promises to them today, and punish them tomorrow. Those who have resisted the certainly immense pressure of the last days must understand that they are beyond the point of no return. They are the enemy now. If he has his way, Francis will have no mercy of them. They are safe of punishment only if they speak loudly now.
How do you stop the bullying?
You denounce the heresy. You let the heretical bubo explode. You put the Catholic world in front of the choice: Truth and Christ, or Francis and Kasper.
Give TMAHICH some good lio.
See how he likes it.
Do you remember the first mad interviews, the initial “off-the-cuff” nonsense, all that senseless stuff until this summer?
You could go around all the major blogs and read a veritable army of Pollyannas repeating ad nauseam* that the Pope had been misinterpreted, or betrayed; or that he did not understand Italian; or he had a cold; or that he had not slept enough…
It was Scalfari’s fault. It was the press’ fault. It was always someone else’s fault.
Have a look around now, in the usual places. Where the comments have not been shut, the music is different. Almost no one dares to write what months ago dozen would have written: the Pope has been betrayed by the wolves! The Pope should be informed! Someone please get him away from the phone and show him this blog! Oh, if he only knew! If he only knew!!
That song is gone. Dead as Disco. More forgotten than Donna Summer. “Reading Francis through Benedict”, by the way, has all but disappeared.
Reading Francis through Satan is what, now, many thinks is the right approach, though still very few dare to say it. One of the few is yours truly, of course; but read the comments in the mainstream blogs carefully and you will find a subtext, an unspoken but clearly implied message, that says who the commenter thinks is the responsible, and why.
The buck can’t stop at Kasper. Those times have gone. The Wolf In Chief, the leader of the “serene and profound” pack, sits on the throne of Peter, and more and more are waking up to this.
Francis is, of course, “helping” them in a way, because in his madness he leaned so much out of the window it is now difficult to feign innocence, and the triumphal “God’s laws are now obsolete” homily/speech, now linked many times, was given on the same day of the Relatio: a double whammy of blasphemy and heresy that totally underestimated the violence of the reaction. Out of a great day of triumph became the worst defeat of Francis ever; the day his image of careful reformer and merciful moderniser was shattered; revealing a scheming, bullying, shameless heretic.
I have already expressed the suspicion that Francis might use cocaine, one of whose symptoms is a progressive but, in the end, extreme loss of the sense of reality, and a euphoric running toward a very solid wall. A behaviour consistent with the extreme stupidity showed by Francis since Monday, and which, if they communicate – which they might well do – surely earned him a frightful scolding from Screwtape, for throwing away in just a few days a patrimony of trust and deception accumulated in many months of solid Modernist work.
Still, the facts are now clear: where the Pollyannas abounded, there is now almost no attempt from individual commenters to keep the blame out of Francis. People start, slowly but clearly, to get it. I think that I, and not many others, are owed an apology, or three.
Where do we go from here? We must hammer into the head of the casual readers the following concepts:
1. There have been heretical Popes in the past. We now have another. Shit happens. Keep calm, and Catholic on.
2. The Holy Ghost does not pick the Pope. The Cardinals do.They are supposed to pray for the guidance of the Holy Ghost, which they might or might not do. The worse they are, the worse, generally, the Pope they elect.
3. This is no time for false courtesy, and measured words. There’s no worse tragedy than a Pope who is a clear enemy of the Church. When you die, pay attention not to be put among the lukewarm. You may come to regret all your “perhaps he was having a low blood pressure” comments, when Christ is spit on the face for all the world to see.
The situation is extreme. Let your words be commensurate to the situation. Jesus was not really (cough) “nuanced”…
4. The Truth will never die. The Church will never die. Even a heretical Pope can but scratch Her surface. Do not despair, and do not lose faith. Prepare yourself for the battle. Pray more. Do penance.
This is our finest hour.
The buck stops at Francis. There’s no escaping this very simple reality, now increasingly more evident even to the distracted observers.
Beware of the wolves. But most of all, understand who the pack leader is.

Faced with the unprecedented scandal of the Relatio, Cardinal Burke asked the Pope to intervene.
But Pope Francis had already delivered the answer, on the same morning the address was made public. There can be no clearer endorsement of the Relatio, and no clearer answer to Cardinal Burke’s question, than the one the Pope had already delivered.
We need to stop pretending that Francis may be anything else than a heretic. We have to do with a Class 1 Modernist here.
Cardinal Burke, Mueller etc. know already how things stand. They must make a public stand that goes beyond asking Francis whether what he allows his minions to do day in and day out, corroborating it with various blasphemies of his own invention, is fine. They must say that it isn’t, and defy him to uphold truth or be called a heretic and enemy of Catholicism.
The reality is staring at us. Let us not look the other way.
I do not like to quote from the wrong Catechism (I much prefer, remaining by the contemporary ones, Ratzinger’s Compendium; or the old ones), but this here seems fitting. Emphases and comments mine.
675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth (does this ring a bell?). The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. (this is 100% the socialist Bergoglio’s agenda, “make poverty history” bullcrap.) The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism (Alas, Bergoglio never got the Memo).
677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.
Now, where is TMAHICH in all this?
Is he the Antichrist? Poppycock. If Bergoglio were the best effort Satan can dish out, we would not be at this point.
Is he, at least, the False Prophet? I cannot believe it, either. Too obvious, too vulgar, too vain, too imprudent, and too stupid, this man is not fooling anyone with some solid instruction and a basic thinking. I read around the blogs, and I have not been finding for months any properly formed intellect daring to support him. If it’s not silence (probably the most common reaction up to now, at least among religious) it’s incredulity, or attempt to think he said something else. That what he says is, in itself, pure, stinking, Class 1 Argentinian Cow Excrement, everyone with a proper functioning brain can see without difficulty; and every month that passes, more brains start to function properly.
Unless he is just an idiot whom God allowed to become Pope in order for us to be punished with, so that we understand how stupid Vatican II is, this here can be put, at most, in the category of the wannabe false prophets; a precursor of the precursor, so to speak; a warning shot; with the important difference that this man here is so unqualified for the job that he can only persuade the heathens, the atheists, those with an agenda (concubines; adulterers; those with the fag in the family, & Co) or the obvious morons.
But does he persuade faithful Catholics? No. Pick your forum, or blog. Read around. See for yourselves. Among those who care he is clearly going nowhere. And the more he tries to garner popularity among the wrong crowd, the more the right crowd open their eyes and start to finally – because violently forced to – look at reality in the eye and say: this is not my religion. Francis is forcing many a sleeping brain to wake up, and start thinking.
TMAHICH is, at the bottom of things, a dirty old man with a dirty old mind, a total lack of faith, and a boundless vanity. He will cause (seen from an earthly perspective) a huge damage, but he will not fool anyone of those that count. True Catholics will oppose him for as long as he is Pope (and let us hope the Lord strikes him dead soon; possibly today; now, as I write this). He can only be liked by those so stupid or so perverted that they want to be blinded by him.
They may be many, but I do not think the blind and the stupid are a great prize for Satan. The smart and the saintly are. They all despise him. That’s how it is. Read around, and see for yourselves.
Francis is a failure even as a revolutionary.
Should be spat in the face. By people in wheelchairs. From the poor neighbourhoods.
