Does Fr. Harrison Think Francis's "Authentic Magisterium" Teaching of Communion for those Committing Adultery isn't Heresy?

The Wanderer's Fr. Brian Harrison issued a attack on the 19 scholar heroes by first presenting a straw man then showing his argument:

"Pope Francis has indeed said some things I believe to be heretical... the heretical doctrine of annihilation... [but] Francis is notorious for frequently speaking 'off the cuff'... [was] he/she accurately reported... [but] supposing... [It's] really heretical opinion... Only if he/she remains stubborn and obstinate can the Church declare him/her to be a formal heretic."
(The Wanderer, "Why I didn't Sign the Open Letter Accusing the Pope of Heresy," May 3, 2019)

It is strange that Harrison says Francis has only "said" some things that may be heretical when he knows the pontiff wrote the Argentine letter that teaches that those committing adultery can receive Communion which was called "authentic magisterium" by the Pope's Vatican and placed in the Holy See's Official Acts of the Apostolic See (AAS).

This means the unorthodox interpretation of Communion for those committing adultery is the official teaching of Francis.

How might Francis and Harrison have known for a long time this teaching is heretical?

First, they just have to read the Ten Commandments. One happens to say that God commands that: "Thou shall not commit adultery."

But, just in case they never heard of the Ten Commandments, way back on December 23, 2016, Dubia Cardinal Walter Brandmuller said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic and promotes schism."
(LifeSiteNews, "Dubia Cardinal: Anyone who Opens Communion to Adulterers is a Heretic and Promotes Schism," December 23, 2016)

In 2017, Francis made it the official teaching of his papacy that those committing adultery can receive Communion by placing the Argentine letter in the Holy See's AAS.

He did this despite the fact that in 2016 Cardinal Brandmuller said Communion for adulterers is heretical and in that same year three other cardinals joined him to issue the Dubia against Communion for adulterers as well as other issues.

It has now been 957 day since the Dubia was issued.

Many people say Francis never answered the Dubia.

They are wrong.

He answered the Dubia in 2017 when he made the heretical teaching Communion for adulterers his official teaching by placing the Argentine letter in the Holy See's AAS.

Could he have been anymore "obstinate" in heresy than that Fr. Harrison?

You, Fr. Harrison, say the Open Letter is "disrespectful to the Supreme Pontiff."

Like Paul was disrespectful to the first pope, Peter, when he rebuked him.

Like the disrespectful Catholics of the Middle Ages:

"[T]he Sorbonne's Chancellor, Jean Gerson [even] reached the point of threatening [Pope] John XXII with the stake if he didn't make a retraction" of his heretical teaching on the Beatific Vision.
(Rotate Caeli, "Popes who fell into Heresy," January 28, 2015)

They would not be like you Fr. Harrison in thinking it is "disrespectful" to call on the world's bishops to admonish Francis.

Do you believe that Communion for adulterers it is heretical?

Do you believe that the Ten Commandments are infallible teachings?

If you do believe then start acting like St. Paul or the Medieval Chancellor Jean Gerson.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Interesting. There is never an official statement from Francis on anything other than his unofficial heresies.

You know, Francis reminds me all the time to Revelations. It reads that the AntiChrist will reveal himself. "Revealing" is a process of whereby the truth is made known over time, but not apparent immediately. This is exactly what is happening with Bergoglio.
Fr. VF said…
Harrison, and others, have pretended that the Open Letter relies ENTIRELY on "reports" of what Bergoglio has said. Straw Man. So, right out of the box, Harrison exposes himself as intellectually dishonest. He can be dismissed as irrelevant. An ignominious end to a long, somewhat illustrious career.

He’s too boorish and stupid to be the attractive, seductive personality the Antichrist is supposed to be. He is just an enabler of the grey pony tails and spoiled liberal Catholic media.

Unfortunately though, this modernist disentegragion of the Catholic Faith (put on steroids at Vatican II) will continue until a true reforming Pope is elected; or until the world ends. Whichever comes first.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
