Is Taylor Marshall "as much a Cafeteria Catholic as any Humane Vitae Denier"?

Today, veteran Catholic blog commenter Justina in the Catholic Monitor comment section said she thought that Dr. Taylor Marshall is "as much a cafeteria Catholic as any Humane Vitae denier":

"Taylor Marshall 'knows' what he wants to know. He knows that staying away from the issue of Bergoglian legitimacy makes it safe--or perhaps, just safe enough--for him to go on riffing about everything else. What does that tell you about the situation in the Church today? Much like the stance of Michael Voris, I believe."

"In a recent TnT video, Marshall mentions that Bishop Schneider is his current favorite. That fits, since Bishop Schneider has made himself the poster boy for the "do not diss Jorge himself, at all costs" approach which Marshall follows. Where was Bishop Schneider, for example, when the Dubia stood in need of additional signers?"

"The problem here is that all truth is true. It's a package deal. If you don't want to investigate or accept the reality of Bergoglian invalidity, you are just as much a cafeteria Catholic as any Humane Vitae denier, no matter how anti-Modernist you claim to be. The fact that Marshall says he HAS investigated and subsequently rejected the Benevacantist position [and Francis conclave validity question] only goes to show he hasn't shed his latent Protestant subjectivism just yet, because a Catholic with respect for UD Gregis, among other things, would acknowledge at the outset that this isn't his call to make."

"When people state that Benedict may still be the Pope, in other words, they are shouted down. "You can't say that! You're only a layman! You have no authority here!" But no one ever points out the exact same thing to people claiming to know for themselves that the "true Pope" is Bergoglio."

"Yes, Dr. Marshall. That means you."

Why does Marshall ignore the fact that Cardinal Raymond Burke told Patrick Coffin there are "grounds... for calling into question the [Francis] election"?
(Patrick Coffin show, Dubia Cardinal Goes on Record - Raymond Cardinal Burke," 19:55 to 21:46)

Why does Marshall ignore the historical precedent of St. Bernard of Clairvaux investigating the validity of the supposed "Pope" Anacletus II conclave and finding his pontificate was not valid because he had violated the conclave constitution and thus was a antipope.

Why does Marshall ignore paragraph 5 of Universi Dominici Gregis (UDG)?

Paragraph 5 of Universi Dominici Gregis states a contrary position to Marshall's apparent view and what conservative canon lawyer Edward Peters has said about UDG when he suggested canon lawyers have a role in interpreting the John Paul II UDG Constitution. The document states:

"Should doubts arise concerning the prescriptions contained in this Constitution, or concerning the manner of putting them into effect. I [Pope John Paul II] Decree that all power of issuing a judgment of this in this regard to the College of Cardinals, to which I grant the faculty of interpreting doubtful or controverted points."
(Universi Dominici Gregis, paragraph 5)

Later in the paragraph it says "except the act of the election," which can be interpreted in a number of ways.

The point is, as Bishop Rene Gracida says and Universi Dominici Gregis says, only the cardinals can interpret its meaning, not Marshall, not canon lawyers or anyone else.

Bishop Gracida is saying what the document says: only the cardinals can interpret it.

He, also, says put pressure on the cardinals to investigate and interpret it which both Marshall and Peters appear to prefer to ignore.

Why is Marshall afraid of a cardinal investigation?

Is he afraid of the truth if it goes against his "subjective" opinion being found to be wrong?

As Justina said:

"The problem here is that all truth is true. It's a package deal. If you don't want to investigate or accept the reality of Bergoglian invalidity, you are just as much a cafeteria Catholic as any Humane Vitae denier, no matter how anti-Modernist you claim to be. The fact that Marshall says he HAS investigated and subsequently rejected the Benevacantist position [and the Francis conclave validity question] only goes to show he hasn't shed his latent Protestant subjectivism just yet, because a Catholic with respect for UD Gregis, among other things, would acknowledge at the outset that this isn't his call to make."

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

It is becoming clear that every single point in the process of the St Gallen Mafia Club effecting their plan to get their man, Bergoglio, on the Chair of Peter is canonically flawed, starting with the emerging indications that he did not suddenly become a heretic after he took the Chair, but that he was one many years before that. (See stories coming from George Neumayr, who is presently reporting from Argentina. So that the Prophecy of St Francis which spoke of an uncanonically elected Pope applies to specifically and only to right now.)
Also
• The invalid resignation of Benedict XVI due to pressures on him has both prophetic and material evidence to indicate it happened.
• The Latin text of Benedict's resignation speech made no grammatical sense.
• Benedict's understanding that he the Pope contemplative shares the papacy with the Pope active (Bergoglio) is flawed … to the extent that if that was his understanding of the nature of his act of resignation, the act was invalid because it is not possible to have two Popes at the one time.
• And the continuous flow of heresies from Bergoglio from the Chair of Peter which goes against our very understanding of what a Pope is… makes him a heretic in a way which is manifest to the world (every word of his goes out to the world...on the various world media...and he knows it) I repeat his heresy is manifest...which makes him a manifest heretic to the world.
• The breaking of the Apostolic Constitution UDG by the St Gallen Mafia's Canvassing for votes.
THE ENTIRE PROCESS FROM BEGINNING TO END CANONICALLY FLAWED!!!!!
Lord thank you for warning us through your servant St Francis!!!

"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.

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... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. 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
