Even Cdl. Bernardin & Vatican II Condemn Pope Francis and Gaudete et Exsultate

Cardinal Joseph Bernardin in 1988 said:

"[S]ome people on the left.. don't hold anyone's feet to the fire on abortion. That is a misuse of consistent ethic, and I deplore it." (Catholic World Report, "The Consistent-and Not So Seamless-Ethic of Life," August 13, 2015)

Even the least pro-life American Cardinal of the 1980's, Bernardin, would "deplore" Francis's celebrating abortion promoters and politicians as well as his Vatican giving them papal awards despite the Pope's lip service to being against abortion.

The teachings of Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI and even Vatican II, also, deplore Gaudete et Exsultate.

Francis's making abortion (an intrinsic evil that is always wrong according the two previous pontificates and 20 centuries of Church teaching) equivalent to immigration (a prudential matter that is the responsibility of the laity according to the two previous pontificates) obviously contradicts the two previous popes teachings.

Gaudete et Exsultate even goes against Vatican II's the Decree on the Laity Apostolicam Actuositatem which states that renew of the temporal order belongs to the laity not to the clerics or the pope:

"'[T]he laws of the political community, international relations, and other matters of this kind, as well as their development and progress' (AA 7)- primarily belongs to the Laity (AA 2, 5)." (Catholic World Report, "The Consistent-and Not So Seamless-Ethic of Life," August 13 2015)

"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...

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? 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
