Does Pope Francis have Paranoia or Dementia?

Pope Francis and his inner circle appear to have symptoms of paranoia. Cardinal Gerhard Mueller in a recent interview revealed that Francis told him:

"They tell me you're my enemy."

Muller in the interview said the “magic circle” around Francis does “spying on alleged opponents” and tells the Pope who are his friends or enemies.

It seems that Francis may be overly attached and surrounded by certain persons with unhealthy thought processes and strange conspiracy ideas.

The Vatican Insider usually a solid news source which has access to ranking Vatican insiders close to the Pope on October 19, 2016 wrote a tabloid like paranoid article.

It slandered anyone remotely criticizing the questionable prudential actions and non- infallible teachings of Francis.

The Insider claimed that those who question Francis are in a global conspiracy with Russian strongman Putin against the Pope.

Phil Lawler and his CatholicCulture.org which defends many of Francis's teachings and even the Argentine norm of Amoris Laetitia when commenting on this article said:

It is "likely...people surrounding Pope Francis" have a "paranoid style" and have fallen into "conspiracy" thinking that "see enemies wherever there is resistance to their agenda." [https://www.catholicculture.org/commentary/the-city-gates.cfm?id=1367]

Francis like those who surround him appears to have fallen into paranoid and conspiracy thought processes as shown by his thinking the wishy-washy Muller is his "enemy."

This is the namby-pamby Muller who while working in the Vatican attacked the Dubia Cardinals to the "bewilderment" of his staff at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith because he contradicted "everything he said... on the matter until now" according to Vatican expert Edward Pentin. (National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Muller TV Interview Causes Bewilderment," January 9, 2017)

If Francis thinks the indecisive Muller is his "enemy," who recently endorsed Amoris Laetitia and before said the divorce and remarried can't receive Communion unless chaste, then it appears that the Pope may have dementia.

Alzheimer experts say a symptom of dementia can be paranoia.

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America says individuals "with dementia may become paranoid."

The Every Day Health post "The Seven Stages of Dementia- Alzheimer's Disease Center" says a sign of severe dementia is:

"Changes in personality or behavior, such as increased paranoia." (Everydayhealth.com, By Madeline Vann, MPH)

Wikipedia says paranoia "is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety and fear...typically includes...beliefs of conspiracy."

Even EWTN commentator Robert Royal of The Catholic Thing said in the 2014 article "Pope Francis Needs New Friends" that Francis appears to be surrounded by certain persons with strange non-rational conspiracy ideas:

"He's clearly in a bubble" with Cardinals like the German Kasper who wants "God to repeal the Laws of Non-contradiction" and radicals like the Honduran Maraiaga who were leading Francis to "connect...global poverty-with a kind of conspiracy theory about arms sales and war is simply bizarre."

To learn more on Francis's other signs of dementia besides paranoia read my article: "Fact Check: Pope Francis, Dementia, Sex Abuse and the Media Cover-up":

Pray a Our Father now that the Dubia Cardinals issue the correction.

Jorge Bergoglio should not be let off the hook by us attempting to attribute his deliberately destructive behavior to some kind of undiagnosed organic process. He is not mentally unhinged;he is morally predatory. He is not paranoid; he is megalomanaical. Anathema sit!
The Pope and is his clique are clearly just a bunch of idiots, paranoid or not. They should be thrown into the Tiber.

"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...

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
