    Pope Francis’ American cardinals are pro-LGBT revolutionaries with a radical agenda for the ChurchOn Communion, conscience, homosexuality, and the family, the Pope's ultra-liberal American cardinals want nothing less than revolution. (L-R) Cardinals Joseph Tobin, Kevin Farrell, and Blase Cupich(LifeSiteNews) – In his quests to stack the College of Cardinals, reshape the U.S. episcopate, and usher in “a different Church,” Pope Francis has promoted a slate of radical American cardinals with a shared vision that would all but destroy the Catholic Church as we know it.With his recent elevation of San Diego’s Cardinal Robert McElroy, Pope Francis has now appointed half...

    Al Capone makes a statement on the Chicago massacre Cardinal Al Capone of the Chicago Outfit has issued a statement concerning the suppression of the North Side Institute on Febuary 14th (the St Valentine's Day Mass-acre). Cardinal Capone tries to look inconspicuous. "On February 14th, seven members of the North Side Community communicated to the archdiocese that they had decided to stop breathing and instead bleed to death through certain holes in their bodies. It was their choice to do so." "They were not killed. We did not shoot them. They chose to discontinue altogether." "The community had the...

    [Catholic Caucus] THE FRANCIS LAW: Cardinals Gregory, Cupich Implement Ban on Latin MassDespite all their talk about "listening" and the "Synodal Way," Francis and his fellow revolutionaries steadfastly REFUSE to listen to the hundreds of thousand of Catholics worldwide who choose to worship God at the Latin Mass -- the Mass of St. Faustina, St. José Sánchez del Río, St. Maximilian Kolbe, and Padre Pio. In the middle of a worldwide pandemic, why is the Church of Pope Francis persecuting faithful Catholics whose only crime is an earnest desire to have access to the Mass of their fathers, the Latin...

    [Catholic Caucus] Persecution in DC: One Young Catholic’s Journey in the Faith, and His (Now Eliminated) Parish Mass I attended my first Tridentine Mass at the age of thirteen (I am now twenty). My new, young pastor convinced me to come, challenging me to kneel on marble for an hour (I had to prove my physical strength—he certainly understood the psyche of the teenage boy). This experience ignited a love affair with Christ and the liturgy that revolutionized my entire life—in the faith and otherwise.I would say I had never been pious before this moment, but that would be...

For a Father James Martin who rejoices at the nomination of McElroy, the man he defines as "a friend of the LGBTQ community" and who was also "one of the first supporters of Building a Bridge”, there is a whole US Catholic world that grew up with the pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict XVI that is turning its nose up at the nomination.The reaction of the Bishops' Conference itself, led by the Archbishop of Los Angeles...

    Neo-Cardinals Remind Viganò of Caligula’s HorsePreviously, Cardinals were chosen for their virtues, personal holiness, erudition, wisdom, and fidelity, Archbishop Viganò wrote in a June 2 statement.But for Francis, he said, appointing cardinals is like filling civil positions. Francis’ selection criteria are “corruptibility, blackmailing, and belonging to a political group.”Viganò explains that corrupt leaders require corrupt subordinates because their collaboration is based on complicity and lack of moral concerns when carrying out orders.“An authority based on blackmailing surrounds itself with blackmailable people” with the goal that next conclave will not elect a pope but “a vaccine salesman or a propagandist for...

(LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis shocked the Church on Sunday with his announcement of 21 new cardinals, including 16 cardinal electors, to be installed at a consistory on August 27.The appointments unsurprisingly include several overt liberals, like pro-LGBT Brazilian Archbishop Leonardo Ulrich Steiner and anti-Latin Mass Vatican liturgy chief Archbishop Arthur Roche.But the Pope’s most radical pick is Bishop Robert McElroy of San...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Francis, Bishop McElroy, and Amoris LaetitiaBy now it is part of an old news cycle that Bishop McElroy is to be made a Cardinal. And the reactions to the news, as might be expected, reflect antecedent theological commitments. In short, theological liberals are cheering and the conservatives are jeering. Over at The National Catholic Reporter Michael Sean Winters is gushing like a fifteen year old adolescent over this appointment, which makes me suspicious. But I have long since gotten beyond judging folks based on who likes or dislikes them. (Because, you know, blind squirrels and acorns and...

    USA: Francis Names Only McCarricks Accomplices as CardinalsAccomplices. The selection of the cardinals appointed by Francis on Sunday shows a further politicisation of the College of Cardinals, and the appointment of the San Diego homosexualist McElroy has shaken the Church. Crisis magazine's editor-in-chief Eric Sammons notes a similarity between the five US cardinals appointed by Francis - Cupich, Farrell, Tobin, Gregory and now McElroy. They are all accomplices of disgraced Cardinal McCarrick.Yet God Has Forbidden HomosexOutlandish. McElroy himself told AmericaMagazine on Tuesday that the synodical process should not exclude certain positions just because they go against a very long-standing discipline...
