    [Catholic Caucus] Responses to Card. McElroy’s essay in Jesuit-run AmerikaJesuit-run (who else?) Amerika ran a piece by – and this still has me shaking my head – Card. McElroy of that key See of San Diego, suffragan to Los Angeles. The Amerika piece is a dreadful obfuscation of Catholic moral teaching and defined doctrine, wrapped in a fog of cliches about synodality (“walking together”) and buzz words like “inclusion”, “dialogue”, “pastoral”.In effect, McElroy wants to change the Church’s teachings on homosexual acts, sexual activity outside of marriage and admission to Communion and the ordination of women. The real basis of...

    This Controversial German Bishop May Soon Be Vatican’s Doctrinal HeadBishop Heiner Wilmer, who has been a vocal backer of the German Synodal Way’s most controversial proposals, is reportedly Pope Francis’s ‘probable’ pick to head the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith. Just weeks ago, the appointment of a controversial German bishop to the influential role of prefect of the Dicastery of the Doctrine of the Faith was reportedly blocked by concerned cardinals, who urged Pope Francis against the appointment. Now, Bishop Heiner Wilmer is once again reported to be the Holy Father’s pick to head the Vatican’s office...

    First gay blessing in Italy, diocese of Italian bishops’ presidentFirst, the civil union at the registry office, then the blessing in church. It’s the first time a gay couple has been blessed in public in an Italian church. What’s more, it took place in Bologna which is the diocese of Cardinal Zuppi, the president of the Italian Bishops' Conference. An act which is in open violation of the Responsum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which forbids such blessings. It’s a demonstration of the pharisaic hypocrisy of certain pastors who, instead of calling the sheep back, proudly...

    Pope Benedict: ‘Gay Clubs’ Run in SeminariesGay “clubs” operate openly in Catholic seminaries, the institutions that prepare men for the priesthood, the late Pope Benedict XVI has claimed in a posthumously published book scathing of Pope Francis’s progressive agenda.In a blistering attack on the state of the Catholic Church under his successor’s papacy, Benedict, who died on Dec 31 at the age of 95, said that the vocational training of the next generation of priests is on the verge of “collapse”.He claimed that some bishops allow trainee priests to watch pornographic films as an outlet for their sexual urges.Benedict gave...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis: "God Does Not Reject Homosexuals""God doesn't reject homosexuals," Francis used his usual doublespeak talking to the Italian psychologist Salvo Noé for another interview book ("La paura come dono" - Fear as a Gift), reports Ansa.it.“God's style is closeness, mercy and tenderness," Francis repeated his mantra, "His heart is open to each and every one. He is Father. Love does not divide, but unites.”Hypocrisy is for Francis “the fear of the truth” - while a more brilliant mind called it "the bowing of vice before virtue."For Francis who ratters down words like "closeness, mercy and tenderness" in order...

    One of the two Atlanta fathers in jail for raping his adoptive sons was accused of luring a different fourteen-year-old boy for sex, seven years before a Christian special needs adoption agency handed over two vulnerable young children to him and his husband. Zachary Zulock was reported to police in 2011 for allegedly luring a 14-year-old boy to his home and raping him. For some unknown reason, the case was not investigated properly by the detectives involved, all of whom have now retired, and charges were never brought. Detectives now working for the department admit their predecessors' investigative efforts fell...

    [Catholic Caucus] German Bishop: Hardly Any Resistance in Rome to the German SynodThe German state bishops experienced "resistance" only from a part of the Roman Curia during their November 2022 Ad Limina visit according to Aachen State Bishop Helmut Dieser (Domradio.de, 12 January).The Roman interlocutors were mostly "rather silent" in conflict talks where the bishops stressed that all the topics of the German Synod are also contained in Francis' Synod.Dieser mystified that the opponents of a "change" [= decadence] are "vocal," "well connected," and "highly aggressive" - a classic case of psychological mirroring of somebody who knows the highly aggressive...

Unfortunately, the Novus Ordo Catholic hierarchy here has done little to stand against it. In fact, some Novus Ordo Catholic prelates in Japan, including the current Archbishop of Tokyo, have helped expose the faithful to LGBT ideology, and have even recommended it. In many ways, the Novus Ordo Catholic hierarchy in Japan is even worse than the mainstream media when it comes to pushing LGBT ideology.I am...
