Francis Joke: Death Penalty is Intrinsically Evil Act even though I Eliminated Intrinsically Evil Acts

This is funny. I'm laughing.

The National Catholic Register's J.D. Flynn, with a straight face, yesterday wrote that the Pope is developing doctrine on the death penalty:

Francis in saying "the death penalty 'is in itself contrary to the Gospel'... evoked the theological concept of 'intrinsically evil acts.'"

Flynn isn't up in the newest development in doctrine.

This week, the Pope's confidant Antonio Spadaro confirmed, what philosopher Josef Seifert said of Amoris Laetitia (303), that Francis has eliminated intrinsically evil acts.

The National Catholic Reporter, on October 6, quotes Spadaro:

"We must conclude that the Pope realizes that one can no longer speak of an abstract category of persons and... praxis of integration in a rule that is absolutely to be followed in every instance."

The Register is behind the times.

Francis eliminated intrinsically evil acts so the death penalty can't be an intrincically evil act.

That is if 2+2 equals 4.

The question is which point is wrong? Is AL wrong or is the death penalty wrong? More likely AL.
Fred Martinez said…
Francis's confidant Spadaro, and it appears the Pope, believes 2+2 equals 5. In postmodernist make believe land, they are both right.

In reality, they are both wrong because intrinsically evil acts exist, but the death penalty is not a intrincically evil act.
Justina said…
But according to themselves, the Bergoglians are always right. If 2 plus 2 can sometimes equal 5, then self-contradiction is perfectly licit. There are no negative precepts of the natural law when Pope Bergoglio says there aren't, but there are when he wants them. Mad Hatter, please call your office!

"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. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

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? 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
