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.

"Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania?": A Hour which will Live in Infamy: 10:01pm November 3, 2020

  Matthew H @MattH_4America Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania? 1:07 PM · Jul 13, 2022 · Twitter Web App [https://twitter.com/MattH_4America/status/1547311877264400384] 10:01pm November 3, 2020, a hour which will live in infamy, the United States of America presidential electoral integrity was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Democrat Machine and some corrupt collaborators within the Republican Party. It will be recorded that "under the pretense of COVID, executive branch officials across a number of key battleground states violated election procedures passed by the legislative branches of those states in a number of ways that opened up the process to fraud on a massive scale, never before seen in the history of this country" which makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks before. During the time before and after the attack the Democrat Machine and its corrupt collaborator

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Alone Bishop Gracida openly proclaims "Resist!" & Actively Works towards the Removal of Francis

    "You cannot give Holy Communion to the abortionists, to the abortion promoters and providers, to the divorce and remarried. You cannot do it. St. Paul said you do not feed the Eucharist to dogs..."   "Right now they [the laity] are suffering in silence. They need to object. The laity, the sensus fidelium is that common sense among the laity who have accepted the magisterial teaching of the Church which is the foundation of their faith."     "Having accepted that when they hear something that is contradictory to the magisterial teaching of the Church, the sensus fidelium is a impulse that causes them to speak out and say no."     "That is not true. Don't say that. Stop! That is the sensus fidelium in action!"     "Not to sit and suffer in silence. That's crazy. That's weird. That's wrong. Speak up! Resist!
