    If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him? Did Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (the future Pope Benedict XVI) say that Francis is a heretic? On June 3, 2003 the then Cardinal Ratzinger (and future Pope Benedict), head of the Congregation for the Faith, said that the endorsement of "homosex civil unions" was against Catholic teaching, that is heterodoxy: "Those who would move from tolerance to the legitimatization of specific rights for cohabiting homosexual persons need to be reminded that the approval or legalization of evil is something...

    Vatican Admits Breaking Away From “What The Church Once Did”The Vatican’s Handbook on Ecumenism (December 4) admits breaking with Catholic tradition.Number 17 claims that Catholics “not only can but indeed must” seek out opportunities to pray with other Christians, yet they should understand that some Christian communities don't practise joint prayer, ”as was once the case for the Catholic Church.” The handbook recommends praying together the psalms and scriptural canticles.It is easy to show that the demands contained in the handbook oppose Catholic doctrine:• Synod of Laodicea (363): “No one shall pray in common with heretics and schismatics.”• Council of...

    Schneider: This Could Mean the Loss of Francis Soul The Catholic Faith, the voice of the Magisterium, and common sense reject the recognition of civil homosex unions, Bishop Athanasius Schneider writes in an October 22 statement. He points out that homosexuals seek sexual pleasure from each other which represents a "great scandal," “a public recognition of sins of fornication,” and is "unrealistic.” “With deep sorrow and a weeping heart,” Schneider regrets that Francis pronounced an endorsement of homosex unions. Thus, he supports "a structure of sin, for a lifestyle against the sixth Commandment of the Decalogue,” Schneider explains. He points...

    Fratelli Tutti, the Death Penalty, and Infallibility October 6, 2020 (Steven O’Reilly) – Pope Francis issued his most recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti on Sunday, October 4, 2020.  I may or may not write more on this tedious encyclical (“Tutti Frutti” as I have called it), but below I offer my initial reaction to the overall document. In addition, I briefly discuss the Pope’s treatment of the Death Penalty in the encyclical.  Some Quick Thoughts on Fratelli TuttiFratelli Tutti is an expansion of some of the themes found in the infamous Abu Dhabi document signed by Francis last year along with the Grand Imam...

    A new study has revealed that 22% of U.S. evangelicals appear to reject the Bible’s teaching that the gender of a person as male or female is given by God, the Creator, and instead believe in “gender fluidity.”While 73% of American evangelicals disagree that “gender identity is a matter of choice,” 22% say they believe in that statement, according to the LifeWay Research “State of Theology” poll released Sept. 8.The survey, sponsored by Orlando-based Ligonier Ministries, and conducted by surveying more than 3,000 Americans in March, also showed that Americans with evangelical beliefs (73%) are more likely to disagree that...

    Archbishop Viganò: Is Vatican II “Untouchable”? Peter Kwasniewski’s recent commentary, titled “Why Viganò’s critique of the Council must be taken seriously”, impressed me greatly. It appeared (here) on OnePeterFive, on June 29, and is one of the articles on which I have been meaning to comment: I do so now, with gratitude to the author and publisher for the opportunity they have given me. First, it seems to me that I can agree with practically all of what Kwasniewski has written: his analysis of the facts is extremely clear and polished and reflects my thoughts exactly. What I am...

    Charles Spurgeon prophetically remarked of the coming Laodicean Church Age when he said that ‘instead of pastors feeding the sheep, you would have clowns feeding the goats’, and has that ever come stunningly true. Joel Osteen, America’s most-popular motivational speaker and pretend preacher has now put 400 of his “most successful positive affirmations’ into a push-button cube that sits on your desk, waiting to lead you and guide you. If the bible is true, Joel Osteen is a liar. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits,...

Introduction In last week’s installment, we noted some of the authorship and reference material behind the Vatican’s new Directory for Catechesis (DC), introducing our claim that this text is both a concise guide to the beliefs and methods of the postconciliar “parallel Church” described by Archbishop Viganò, and that it serves as a manifesto for the effective subversion of the Church’s...

    [Catholic Caucus] Magister vs. Viganò. Who Is Right? (Hint: His name begins with “V”.) Sandro Magister, a prominent critic of the current pontificate—with good reason aplenty— seems to have abandoned his critical faculty when it comes to the suggestion by Archbishop Carlo Viganò that, for all the trouble it has caused, the best approach to the Second Vatican Council is not the endless pursuit of Benedict XVI’s “hermeneutic of continuity,” whose meaning remains elusive, but rather simply “to to drop it ‘in toto‘ and forget it.” My co-author Tom Woods and I made the same argument back in 2002 in...

    Archbishop Viganò: ‘Heresy, sodomy, and corruption’ are trademark of ‘deep church’ July 25, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has pointed out three elements that have become what he calls the trademark of the deep Church: “heresy, sodomy, and corruption.” In a new wide-ranging interview with Vatican expert Marco Tosatti (read full interview below), the Vatican whistleblower speaks about the deeper significance of the case of former Cardinal McCarrick in relation to the “doctrinal crisis” the Church is facing. “There is a very strict relationship between the doctrinal crisis of the Church and the immorality of the clergy, that scandalously reaches up to...
  • Why Acts 17 Couldn't Apply To The Metatrone Controversy

    … Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. (Acts 17:22-23)Would referring to the LORD Jesus Christ, as the Metatron, be the same as Paul preaching to the Greeks, revealing to them the true identity of the “unknown god” that they had made altars to? When Paul came to Athens, He saw that the...

    Dr. Reza Parchizadeh, a political theorist and analyst, recently noted on Twitter that “the Iranian regime has turned the late #George_Floyd into Saint George, Shiite-style!” And sure enough, Parchizadeh posted a painting of Floyd depicting him in the way Shi’ite Muslims often depict their holy figures: in a green robe and surrounded by an aura of holy light.

Luigi Ciotti On September 1, Crux reported that Francis said: "Let's call unions between the same sex 'civil unions.'" (Crux, "'I consulted a psychoanalyst,' Pope Francis reveals in new book," September 1, 2017) The gay/lesbian dissenting New Ways Ministry said: "Pope Francis has never, as pontiff, stated his endorsement of [homosexual] civil unions so flatly.

    [Catholic / Orthodox Caucus] How Amoris Laetitia’s Stalemate Debases Marriage In modernity, monogamy is often defined to mean “one partner at a time” or, in other words, “anything short of a harem.” As the Sexual Revolution enters its third generation, the figures are becoming clear: a greater number of sexual partners corresponds to a lower success rate in a later marriage.Marriage as we know it cannot coexist with free love, yet weddings continue to be performed. We govern ourselves by our decisions, not by averages, but we must acknowledge averages if we are to avoid following courses of least resistance...
