    Pope Francis said his conservative critics within the Roman Catholic Church in the United States are trapped in a "suicidal attitude," according to an interview with CBS. During the April 24 interview with "60 Minutes" that will air this Sunday, Pope Francis was asked his thoughts on the conservative backlash against his papacy, with many of his critics being American clergy members. Pope Francis responded by saying a conservative is someone who "clings to something and does not want to see beyond that." "It is a suicidal attitude," the pontiff said, according to a brief transcript excerpt made available by...

    ‘NO Climate Crisis’ Says Coalition of 1,600 Actual ScientistsThe United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is ‘one of the worst sources of dangerous misinformation’ “There is ‘NO Climate Crisis’ says a coalition of 1,600 actual scientists” in a recent letter to the California Air Resources Board. In fact, the scientists find that “California is in no danger of unusual drought: The annual precipitation in California has fluctuated greatly over the last 150 years, with only a slight decrease.” California also has record low levels of air pollution that are below the threshold of human health effects, James E.

    Joking Pope refers to prayers against him inside the VaticanROME – Almost anyone who’s ever met Pope Francis in person has heard some version of his standard laugh line. It generally goes like this: When the visitor assures the pope that he or she is praying for him, the pontiff, with a twinkle in his eye, will ask a simple question.Pro, o contra?That is, are you praying for me or against me? It’s a jocular way of acknowledging that Francis understands he tends to be a lightning rod, stirring both passion and outrage.On Friday, however, the pontiff added a new...

    ... It was the third papal meeting for Laura, 57, a saucy Paraguayan sex worker who, in her realest moments, described herself as “una travesti,” outdated Spanish slang for “a transgender woman.” She lived by a code: Tough girls don’t cry. But the first time Pope Francis had blessed her, she couldn’t suppress her tears. On their second meeting, they chatted over lunch. He came to know her well enough to ask about her health. On top of her longtime HIV, she’d had a recent cancer diagnosis. During treatment, the church sourced her a comfortable hotel room in the shadow...

    Pope Francis hints at new ‘understanding’ of papacy during meeting with Anglican leadersThe Pontiff’s speech to the Anglicans held a revolutionary possibility: namely, a decision by Francis to use the papacy itself as an ecumenical bargaining tool, in a manner which could appear to undermine the authority wielded by the Pope.Pope Francis greets Canterbury's Justin Welby, May 2, 2024.VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis hosted leaders from the Anglican Communion at the Vatican Thursday, and while speaking about the “controversial” role of the papacy, the Pontiff raised the possibility of a new “understanding” that could result from ecumenical relations and...

    The scandals haunting Pope Francis - Scheming cardinals are sharpening their knivesThe cardinals are already meeting to discuss who should be the next pope. Some of the liberal ones, who feel safe because they’re in favour with the ailing Pope Francis, can be seen comparing notes in a bar near the gates of the Vatican. The conservative cardinals are more nervous: they gather at suppers in each other’s apartments or — if they can trust the fawning waiters not to betray them — in a favourite restaurant.Perhaps you can see the flash of a bishop’s ring as he taps a...

    Although he appeared well and spoke in a clear voice, he also made a rare acknowledgement of the strains of the job. "Please pray for me because this work is not easy," he told thousands of faithful gathered in St Mark's Square. He started the day by flying by helicopter into a women's prison where the Vatican has set up an exhibition that is part of the Venice Biennale -- a prestigious international art show that has never been visited by a pope before.

    Pope Francis’ favorability rating has been dropping constantly among U.S. Catholics over the past 10 years, according to an April Pew Research Center poll. From 2015 to 2021, the pope’s favorability rating dropped by 7 percentage points, from 90 percent to 83 percent, Pew found. More telling still, perhaps, is that in the last 3 years his favorability rating has declined by 8 more percentage points, to a record low of 75 percent. Practicing Catholics who attend Mass at least once a week are the least supportive of him, giving him a favorability rating of just 71 percent. A mere...

    Pope Francis has declared war on faithful CatholicsFor Christians, Lent is a season of repentance. But for some radical leftists in America, it’s been an opportunity for sacrilege.On Ash Wednesday 2024, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, “America’s Parish Church,” was thronged with the faithful, seeking ashes of repentance.But the following day, the same hallowed space was desecrated by the sacrilegious clamor of a thousand God-hating radicals.As the coffin of “Cecilia” Gentili, a self-styled “whore” drag queen, was carried down the aisle, the godless crowds proclaimed him as the: “Great whore, St. Cecilia, the Mother of All Whores.”And as this cry echoed from...

    Worshipping GaiaAs much as Francis of Assisi loved nature, he understood that our first responsibility is to God and not to nature. It's not clear if his namesake pope feels the same.Last month, the redoubtable Jordan Peterson sat down with reporter Colm Flynn of EWTN (the Eternal Word Television Network) to discuss a variety of topics, including his wife Tammy’s miraculous recovery from cancer, the widespread loss of faith in the Catholic Church since the 1960s, and Pope Francis’ “fixation” on “climate change.” The term “fixation” is a word used by psychologists to indicate a mental abnormality. Dr. Peterson is...

    In the late 1800s and early 1900s the western world experienced a sudden burst of open occultism among the ultra-rich elites. The rise of “Theosophy” was underway, becoming a kind of fashion trend that would ultimately set the stage for what would later be called “new age” spiritualism. The primary driver of the theosophical movement was a small group of obscure academics led in part by a woman named H.P. Blavatsky. The group was obsessed with esoteric belief, Gnosticism and even Satanism. Blavatsky co-founded the Theosophical Society in New York in 1875, claiming that she had a psychic connection to...
