Skip to comments.[Cath Cauc] The Authority Of Bishops… Can A Catholic Resist A Wrong Teaching Of His Bishop?

It has certainly caused much confusion in the consciences of a great many faithful Catholics to learn that bishops in countries such as Malta, Belgium, Germany and Argentina are giving Holy Communion to couples who live in an adulterous relationship. And the confusion is naturally attributed to the ambiguous teaching of Pope Francis apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia. Every Catholic knows that adultery is a mortal sin, and if a person dies in that state he can hardly expect to be saved. The Commandment is clear: Thou shalt not commit adultery. Period. Those that do, like David and the woman in the Gospel, were called to repent and to sin no more.

Long past are the days where the clergy was considered to have the highest of education. In any case, “education” has transmogrified into “indoctrination”, and it lives in the Catholic Church as it does in virtually every other discipline.
As one raised a Catholic, sorry, but our Pope is a dope. A very corrupt dope. A very corrupt gay dope.
In the US military, a soldier is obligated to refuse to follow illegal orders issued by an officer. I think the same should apply within the Church, if a bishop tells us to do what is sinful by all of the Church’s traditional teaching, then one should not follow his instructions. Our souls depend upon it.
Well, the streets of Hell are supposed to be paved with the skulls of bishops, or so I’ve heard.
