Silly Fastiggi/Goldstein vs. Pope Francis's Amoris Laetitia Ghostwriter

-Updated October 6, 2017-

The Robert Fastiggi and Dawn Eden Goldstein attack on the Filial Correction in which they say the Latin translation of Amoris Leatitia is orthodox is silly.

They claim the Latin interpretation of A.L. invalidates the Correction.

Correction spokesman Joesph Shaw agrees it can have a orthodox intreptration. The problem is it can also have a unorthodox intreptration.

Fastiggi and Goldstein are mixed up.

The pair need to attack the Malta/German Bishop's unorthodox intreptration of Amoris Leatitia.

Even more importantly, the silly pair need to attack the intimate friend of Pope Francis and ghostwriter of Amoris Leatitia.

The Amoris Leatitia ghostwriter's interpretation doesn't square with the Fastiggi/Goldstein interpretation of Amoris Leatitia.

Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez who the Vatican expert Edward Pentin says is the "ghostwriter" of Amoris Laetitia and one of the Pope's closest advisers according to Crux said:

"Pope Francis... sought to move the Church forward on the question of Communion for remarried divorces 'in a discreet way'...'in a more uxorio cohabitation... 'an objectively grave fault is not sufficient to deprive a person of sanctifying grace... there can be a path of discernment open to the possibility of receiving the food of the Eucharist.'"

Basically, Fernandez, in a laborious way, said Francis opened the door for adulterers in more uxorio (which means sexual relations) to receive Holy Communion.

Moreover, Fernandez said:

Francis's Argentina letter is a "authorizative statement" that says adulterers can receive Holy Communion while not living as brother and sister. (Crux, "Papal confidante says 'Amoris' critics in 'death-trap' logic, August 21, 2017)

The Crux article reported Fernandez said a letter by Pope Puis IX which was a "authorizative statement" is an example that shows the Argentina letter of Francis is written formal papal teaching.

In that case if the Pope's ghostwriter is correct then Francis has by a "authorizative statement" answered the Cardinals dubia or question on if adulterers can receive Communion while not living as brother and sister (that is while committing adulterous sexual relations).

On December 23, 2016 Cardinal Walter Brandmuller, one of the Dubia Cardinals, said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic."  (lifesitenews.com)

Therefore, Pope Francis is a material heretic because he is "unaware that his heretical opinion denies, in the words of Canon 751 'some truth which is to be believed by divine and Catholic faith.'" (Wikipedia, "Catholic teachings on heresy")

Eminent Dominican theologian Father Aidan Nichols agrees with Cardinal Brandmuller's above statement.

According to Pentin, Fr. Nichols said interpretations of Amoris Laetitia "such as the one given by Archbishop Fernandez above, contradicts the perennial teaching of the Church, and the exhortation effectively argues for 'tolerated concubinage.'" (National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin, "Archbishop Fernandez Defends 'Amoris Laetitia' From Its Critics, August 21, 2017)

The Dubia Cardinals have their answer.

They need to issue the correction.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
