Peronist Pope Francis's Theology is "Strongly Evocative of the [German] National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'" according to Renowned Theologian Rowland

The executive director of Catholic News Agency and the editor of a papal biography on the current pope, Alejandro Bermudez, says:

The "biggest impact on Francis' thought were Jesuit Fr. Juan Carlos Scannone... a professor of young Fr. Bergoglio- as well as Argentinian Fr. Lucio Gera."
(Catholic News Agency, "The theological formation of Pope Francis," March 17, 2018)

Scannone is a "second generation disseminator" of Gera's Theology of the People which governs Francis's thought and papacy according to Latin America and Pope Francis expert Claudio Ivan Remeseira.

According to Remeseira, the "thinking of Pope Francis has been shaped by two specifically Argentinian factors... Peronist theologians and priests [such as Scannone who] seek to reconcile their political beliefs with the ecclesiology of the People of God championed by Vatican II."

This amounted to a mixture of Franco-like Fascist Peronism with Peronist leftist secular socialism that was the "Argentine social-welfare state" which Remeseira called "National-populist ideology" and the belief that "popular culture is... the sign of the Holy Spirit's presence in the community":

"[T]he Peronist... terminology was reminiscent of Francoist Spain, but instead of turning the country into a National-Catholic regime, Peron turned around the relationship between Church and State... Argentina morphed into a secular National-populist ideology.... [with] [o]ther characteristics of Peronism common with Fascism... fervent nationalism... the identification of Party and Nation as one."

"The centerpiece of this ideology was the charismatic relationship between Leader and People... the religious undertones of Peronism were captured by Evita [wife of Peron], the [Virgin Mary-like] mediator between the Leader and the masses [the "People"]... When Evita died... a saint-like cult of her memory rapidly spread across the country."

"... The long established influence of German idealism [the philosophy of the Modernist heresy] in Argentine philosophy also played its part... [Modernist German] Cardinal Walter Kasper points out that during his doctoral studies in 1950s Germany, Gera 'became familiar with... the Tubingen school (of theology)... teachings about the spirit of the people', the volkgeist."

"The ethnic essentialism associated with the notion of the volk had a peculiar spin in Argentina... the mestizo population that had been displaced by the those immigrants. The displacement of the lesser-skilled labor force by the [Peronist] gringos... [a] majority of the Argentinian churchmen- including Bergoglio- were themselves first or second generation European ["gringos"] immigrants; their awareness of, and in some cases, their feelings of guilt, help explain their support for Peron and their entrenched dislike of capitalism."

"In this theology, the People are defined in a narrow sense as the poor and the dispossessed..."

"... [the "People's"] Latin American Catholicism... a suspicious mélange of pre-Christian beliefs, half-baked Catechism precepts, and outright superstitions. Gera... develop[ed]... as key to the spiritual renovation of the Church."
(Medium, "Pope Francis, Peron and God's People: The Political Religion of Jorge Mario Bergoglio," September 17, 2017)

Renowned theologian Tracey Rowland says that the "Argentinian 'People's Theology" gives:

A "privileged epistemological standing to the 'people' similar to that given to the proletariat class by Marxist theorists and to the 'Volk' by the German National Socialist...To European ears', the notion of 'the people' enjoying some kind of special epistemological status is strongly evocative of the National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'... Scannone would argue... their spirituality is based on [popular culture as explained by Gera] Christian beliefs, not Norse mythology."
(Catholic Theology, page 182)

To a large extent, Pope Francis's Theology of the People, it appears, is not based on Revelation.

Francis's thinking appears, to a large extent, to be based on a theology that believes the "key to the spiritual renovation of the Church" is the People's "pre-Christian beliefs, half-baked Catechism precepts and outright superstitions" and is "strongly evocative of the [German] National Socialist concept of the 'Volk'" as well as the Argentinian Peronist mixture of Franco-like Fascist and leftist socialist secular political beliefs.

Please say an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Tubingen was where the Great Apostasy began: as early as post-Napoleonic Europe in the 1820s. The beginning for this "Protestant" seminary & theological college was to attack the written Word of God, which, once they could discredit it, they could then claim the Creed had no favored foundation in revelation. It was the beginning of Modernism as the heresy of all heresies. Bergoglio prefers all the false teachers: from the founders of Modernism to the ilk of Martini and Kasper. All of the worst teachers of the "doctrines of devils" Bergoglio has publically stated are his inspiration!

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.

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

    "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!
