Cdl. Burke's Choice: Be Another St. Bernard or be a Useful Idiot

If Cardinal Raymond Burke believes that the Amazon Synod "document is an apostasy" and he knows Francis is the force behind the "apostasy" document then in the name of the red hat which symbolizes martyrdom that he wears he must act despite the consequences.
(LifeSiteNews, "Cardinal Burke: Amazon synod working doc is 'apostasy', cannot become Church teaching." August 13, 2019)

Is Francis the driving force behind the Instrumentum Laboris Amazon Synod document?

Only a idiot (a person of low intelligence) would say Francis is not the driving force behind the document.

Although another type could say the above:

A useful idiot that is one who is unwittingly assisting a totalitarian agenda without comprehending that he is cynically being used by the totalitarian agenda's leader.

So for all the idiots and useful idiots who might claim Francis isn't behind the document here are Francis's words where he says he can numerate and even categorize the Instrumentum Laboris agenda.

When he was asked if ordaining men is a main purpose of the document:

"Absolutely not," he [Francis] said.

Is is simply a number of the Instrumentum Laboris."
(LifeSiteNews, "Pope insists Amazon Synod will focus on environment, not married priests," August 14, 2019)

Cardinal Burke is not a idiot so he knows that Francis is the driving force behind the document and the Synod.

So if Burke is not a idiot or a useful idiot and believes that Francis is the driving force behind "apostasy" then he must act.

First, he must issue the correction as he said he would if Francis didn't answer the Dubia questions.

Next, since he told Patrick Coffin there are "grounds... for calling into question the validity of the [Francis] election" and, moreover, said "I don't think I have the facts, and there have to be facts, to prove that" then he must act on those statements.
(Patrick Coffin show, "Dubia Cardinal Goes on Record - Raymond Cardinal Burke," 19:55 to 21:46)

He must call an investigation on Francis's conclave to find the "facts" on if Francis is a pope or a antipope.

Cardinal Burke must by himself if need be act like St. Bernard of Clairvaux who single handedly investigated if the supposed Pope Anacletus II was a pope or a antipope.

St. Bernard found in his investigation that despite the fact that Anacletus received a majority of the votes of the cardinals he was a antipope because the previous Pope made a conclave constitution that said the majority of "a commission of eight cardinals should... choose the next Pope" and not the majority of the cardinals.
(Warren Carroll's "The Glory of Christendom, Pages 36 to 37)

The renowned Catholic historian Carroll Warren wrote:

"Papal election procedures are governed by the prescription of the last Pope... A Papal claimant not following these methods is also an Antipope."
( library/ homelibr/antipope.txt)

Put in simple terms, Cardinal Burke has a choices: Be another St. Bernard or be a useful idiot.

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

Note: I want to apologize to Cardinal Burke because in the original post I wrote he "apparently is not a idiot." I deleted "apparently" because it is obvious that he has high intelligence. I am sorry that I didn't clean or edit that out earlier.

Cdl. Burke is in a difficult position, as is Müller. An acknowledgement of the schism (that already exists) will harden the lines on both sides; is he hoping that more of the hierarchy will openly join him before this occurs? It is shocking that so few bishops have defended the Church against the Bergolian machine--this thing would be over already if they had, and what is most disturbing of all, they know it.

Surely they must move before this circus of a 'synod' takes place.

Here's another thought: after Francis and his lieutenants depart for Amazonia, Sister Doorkeeper (preferably the tiny but formidable nun from San Pancrazio), simply locks the gates behind them!

I listened to His Eminence's conversation with Patrick Coffin, and I'll be honest, I don't think he truly knows which direction to turn. He didn't outright condemn the idea that the "conclave" was rigged, and he didn't condemn the idea that Benedict is still the pope. Perhaps he believes both are true (meaning that while Benedict is still pope, the cardinals DID conspire to get Bergoglio into the office). I think he is, indeed, waiting for others with which to have these conversations, because the ramifications are immense.

I look at my own circles, and the shockwaves of 12 Cardinals stating 1) that Francis is in heresy, 2) the "conclave" was rigged, and thus we are "sede vacante", or 3) Benedict is still pope, and Francis never was would be extremely intense, and lead to massive amounts of confusion.

As to Card. Burke and other orthodox cardinals and bishops, if they had the basic courage simply to resist Francis and his pernicious agenda, openly called him a heretic, and openly took the risk of schism and/or excommunication, they would be able to topple the Pope and turn the page of this infamous and blasphemous pontificate. But they are simply too scared to do so.

Aaron, we would find out pretty quickly who is on our side. That's essential information.

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

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
