Papal Validity: Are Francis's "Inappropriate" Slapping as well as Kissing & "Childlike" Behaviors Signs he may be Demented or have Dementia?

- Updated January 1, 2020

Yesterday, Francis's inappropriate angry "childlike" hand slapping episode when added to the earlier in the year ring-kissing behavior controversy where he appeared to play the immature children's "gotcha" game that received similar headline sequences was similarly explained as "bizarre," "awkward" and "cringeworthy."
(CatholicCulture.org, "The bizarre ring-kissing controversy, March 28, 2019)

The many episodes of "bizarre behavior of Francis" apparently are a habit pattern, but other than when he is not angrily and dynamicly denouncing faithful Catholics or American anti-socialism he appears to be normal if somewhat dynamic or theatrical.

Francis's theatrical spoiled child ways remind one of a C.S. Lewis' Great Divorce character, the theatrical Frank, who is like all leftists who have acted like tyrannical spoiled children since Karl Marx in wanting to use "pity" to "blackmail the universe: that till they consent to be happy (on their own [evil] terms [such as the Francis Vatican Gay Lobby and all gay activists]) no one shall taste joy... that Hell['s evil] should be able to veto Heaven['s good]... [pity] draws men to concede what should not be conceded."
(The Great Divorce, Chapter 13)

But getting back to the main point, this spoiled child ways of "inappropriate" and "childlike" habit pattern behavior of Francis could be a sign of dementia according to dementia experts:

"[Y]our loved one's behavior may seem inappropriate, childlike or impulsive."
(Lewy Body Dementia Association, Ibda.org, "Understanding Behavioral Changes in Dementia," by Tanis German Ph.D, Mayo Clinic)

Gloria.tv reported Francis apparently inappropriately kissed some embarrassed politicians feet:

"Francis knelt down and kissed the feet of several [deeply embarrassed] South Sudan leaders."
(Gloria.tv, "Showtime: Francis Knees to Kiss Feet of South Sudan Politicians, April 11, 2019)

This inappropriate foot kissing behavior by Francis caused Bishop Rene Gracida on his website to comment in a headline:

"The Bizarre Behavior of Francis the Merciful is Beginning to cause Questions to be asked in Rome about his Behavior"
(Abyssus.org, April 11, 2019)

According to NeuroPsychiatry Online this could be a sign of dementia:

"Patients with bvFTD [frontotemporal dementia] can present with inappropriate personal comments or touching, violation of interpersonal space, and other personally intrusive behaviors such as kissing."
(NeuroPsychiatryonline.org, "Kissing or 'Osculation' in Frontotemporal Dementia," July 1, 2014)

Sadly, this isn't the Pope's first foot kissing behavior (Google: Images: "Pope Francis foot kissing" for other examples of this behavior). Francis's possible fixation on foot kissing may, also, be associated with his comment and possible fixation on coprophilia:

"[I]n Psychpathia Sexualis... categorize foot fetishism [such as foot kissing] and coprophilia under the same heading... Self-Humiliation."
(Book.google.com, "Dada and Surrealist Films," Page 165)

Francis's comment on poop eating is infamous. Many were outraged, but I think the proper response is pity.

Tragically, poop fixation and poop eating (coprophilia) fixation are more possible signs of dementia.
(AllNurses.com, "Coprophilia And Scatolia In Demented Elderly Residents, August 7, 2012)

Renowned papal validity theologian Arnaldo Xavier de Silverado in his book wrote that a "demented person" or person with dementia couldn't ""occupy the charge" of "Pope":

"The designation, as Pope, of a person who cannot occupy the charge, would constitute... a demented [dementia] person."
(Implications of New Missae and Heretic Popes," Page 86)

Remember that the book "Dictator Pope" by historian Henry Sire claimed that a Jesuit assessment by the then Superior General of the Jesuits Father Peter Hans Kolvenbach thought Francis was "[u]nsuitable to be a [b]ishop" and lacked "psychological balance" according to a review by Gloria.tv:

"[T]he assessment Father Bergoglio received... accused Bergoglio of a series of defects... vulgar language to deviousness, disobedience concealed under the mask of humility, and lack of psychological balance... the habit of saying diametrically opposing things from one day to the next."
(Gloria.tv, "Unsuitable to be a Bishop," December 3, 2017)

Finally, we'll end with a coincidence:

Before Francis, there was never a healthy pope who repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist and who kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of Muslim politicians.

To put this coincidence in perspective, imagine if Pope John Paul II while he was still healthy had repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist, but meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of President Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev or a Muslim politician.

Catholics and even the secular media would have probably have thought something might be a little psychologically unbalanced with the person involved with that coincidence.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Something is wrong, no doubt about it. Bizarre hardly rises to the definition of his insane behavior.
Tancred said…
Insane like a fox, maybe. I’m not seeing any signs of dimentia. He seems pretty dynamic and clear-headed for his age.

I don’t wish him ill. He’s just wrong, and malevolent.
Fred Martinez said…
One can be both wrong and demented.

For example, Hitler who reportedly practiced coprophilia, but was foxy enough not to talk about coprophilia in public.

Do clear-headed or psychologically balanced persons talk of coprophilia, spontaneously kiss politicians feet, play pull away the Papal ring in front of cameraman and say diametrically opposing things from one day to the next?

What a lovely blog. So respectful of the Pontiff. So conducive to unity. So careful not to slander, judge, or calumniate the Vicar of Christ. So utterly Catholic, that it's remarkable the Cardinals didn't vote the author here to succeed Benedict.

Keep it up my friends. The devil is losing big time with such inspired reporting as this.

What a lovely commenter. So respectful of facts and truth. So conducive of unity with the gay inner circle of his beloved pope, so caring of all the sexually abused boys so he can have his "unity" with his beloved gay clerics, of Communion for adulterers and indifferentism that denies that Jesus Christ's Church is the one and only true faith.

So careful of denying evidence about his pontiff. So careful not to slander, judge or calumniate someone presenting evidence by not presenting counter evidence, but mooning moonshine rhetoric.

So utterly "Catholic," it's remarkable that Francis didn't make the commenter
a bishop such the gay Barros or Zanchetta whom the commenter desires we and apparently he be "conducive to unity" with.

Keep it up my friend. The devil is gaining big time with such commenting.

Dear deeply moved Bergbot.

Bergoglio never was the pope. And if he is a sociopath or psychopath, he has not been a Catholic since puberty....because he rejects the very notion of the existence of a God to Whom he must submit his conscience and actions for eternal judgeent.

Dementia or not, this whole catastrophe speaks volumes about the cardinals who elected him.

The Pope regularly harshly judges our President and any American Catholic who supports him and wants our nation to remain sovereign. It isn't the devil questioning our Popes actions. It's concerned Catholics who know what the word of God says. We don't put statutes of heathen gods up and present them at Mass in his church. We are talking about the Pope who is the leader of our church and has the souls of his followers which number in the billions listening and believing him. We have a duty to God to speak out when we see that his word isn't being followed. We worship one God and bow only to him.

"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.

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

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement.

The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment.
